Here is a volume of 30 papers by Roman Catholic moral theologians from all over the world who met in Italy in 2006 for a cross-cultural conversation on theological ethics.
This book is readily accessible to people who may not be professional ethicists but who are willing to think seriously about the whole of our world and to reckon with important insights from men and women whose local contexts are Latin America, Africa and Asia as well as Europe and North America – a challenging if not always comfortable experience.
