  • Catholic ethicists assess the reception, development, and relevance of the "consistent ethic of life."

    Among his lasting contributions, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin is remembered for what he called a "consistent ethic of life" that linked a range of moral issues including abortion, capital punishment, war, and social justice. This "seamless garment" approach was widely viewed as a radical and thorough attempt to bring basic insights from the New Testament and Catholic tradition to bear on the full range of social and moral concerns. Complementing a previous volume, The Seamless Garment, which collected all of Bernardins writings on the subject, Thomas Nairn has gathered in this volume a series of essays by leading Catholic ethicists to assess the reception and ongoing relevance of the "consistent ethic of life."

    Contributors include Thomas Nairn, James J. Walter, Ron Hamel, James Keenan, Patricia Beattie Jung, Elizabeth Brinkman, Regina Wentzel Wolfe, M. Therese Lysaught, Dawn M. Nothwehr, and Thomas A. Shannon.
