Contemplative Ethics seeks to respond to the challenge put forth by the late Pope John Paul II to all the Catholic faithful to "put out into deep water" (Duc in altum) by contemplating the face of Christ in navigating the waters of the third millennium.
A methodology for the moral life is developed along with concrete guidelines for a spirituality that flows directly from this contemplative approach to the mysteries of Christ.
Each chapter concludes with:
- A set of reflection questions: Contemplating the Face of Christ
- A practical exercise: Following the Promptings of the Spirit
