In this new textbook two Catholic ethicists with extensive teaching experience present a moral theology based on vision. David Matzko McCarthy and James M. Donohue draw widely from the Western philosophical tradition while integrating biblical and theological themes in order to explore such fundamental questions as What is good?

The fourteen chapters in Moral Vision are short and thematic. Substantive study questions engage with primary texts and encourage students to apply theory to everyday life and common human experiences. The book is accessibly written and flexible enough to fit into any undergraduate or seminary course on ethics.

“Moral theologians often struggle to find books for our classrooms. Some are too catechetical and therefore not sufficiently critical. Others sell out to secular culture and have little to no theological grounding. Still others have an undue focus on boundary or extreme cases or questions. Moral Vision avoids each of these pitfalls.”

“This book invites us to see two master teachers at work—and it is beautiful to behold! They write in direct but thought-provoking language that leads step-by-step through philosophical concepts, theological content, and issues related to moral vision.”
David Cloutier
— Catholic University of America
“In a time of pitched battles over controversial issues, where everyone sees ethics as a matter of taking sides, McCarthy and Donohue recall students to the deeper questions we all must consider if these conflicts are ever to be resolved—and, more importantly, if we are to live the lives to which God calls us.”
Ann Gillian Chu in The Expository Times
“Our society is interested in the dualism of knowledge or choice, and desire or reason. Moral Vision is a good reminder not to separate being from doing. This book is helpful for me as an aspiring ethicist, and as a reader working to become a better person.”
