• Notes on Moral Theology •: Living the Truth: Fundamental Theological Ethics

At the 2009 convention of the Catholic Theological Society of America, the author advocated for a more rhetorically robust and closer-to-the-truth style in theological ethics. In this note, he examines those works that embody that style by capturing the urgency and immediacy of moral truth as lived in the lives of contemporary Christians. In particular, he finds that the closer we come to the truth, the more we inevitably recognize that conflict, tension, ambiguity, and even bewilderment are necessary, integral components of the true human moral narrative.
