Essays by moral theologians presented at the unique gathering in Padua, Italy of 420 moral theologians from 63 countries. "The book is a rich minefield of the latest theological investigations on the burning ethical issues of the globe. The essays explore the complex texture of the issues of the day, examine them in light of Gods ongoing revelation in contexts and tradition, and open up pathways for efficacious responses. Written by theological ethicists from five continents, the essays demonstrate how local contexts, and their creative dynamism and diversity of insights, can continue to transform the Catholic moral tradition into a rich resource of a world church in mission." - Aloysius Lopez Cartagenas.
