Over the past fifty years, Irish theologians and philosophers have made a considerable contribution to the study of moral issues. some of this work has not been readily available to the general reader.
Now two of Ireland’s most respected theological thinkers have collated some of the most significant and formative of these articles in An Irish Reader in Moral Theology. The third Volume in this series, ‘Medical and Bio Ethics’ is divided into five sections: Healthcare, Abortion, Status of the Embryo; Stem Cell Research, Aids, and Euthanasia/Assisted Suicide.
This series is essential reading for anyone who wishes to engage intelligently in a discussion of the many controversial issues that are matters of public discourse today. It will also be an invaluable resource for present-day studies of theology.
Enda McDonagh and Vincent MacNamara are both former professors of Moral Theology and prolific authors of books and articles in this area.
