"Since it was first published in 1991, The Moral Virtues and Theological Ethics has received praise from a wide range of commentators, both Catholic and Protestant. This second edition includes new materials that have been published since the early 1990s, especially the first papal document to address fundamental questions of moral theology, Veritatis splendor. Those who already have adopted the book for classroom use will welcome this new edition, while those who have just been introduced to it will find an authoritative account of the status that virtue-centered theological ethics enjoys today." Following a new preface, the text of the six chapters from the original edition remains unchanged. However, Romanus Cessario has substantially updated his notes to account for recent literature on the subject, and he has written a new chapter that accommodates his original study to current developments in moral theology. This second edition will inspire a new generation of students and teachers.
