Summary: Volume twelve in the always popular Readings in Moral Theology Series addresses the complex interrelationship of religion, morality and public policy from the viewpoint of the Catholic Church, and not primarily from the perspective of the First Amendment. In keeping with the approach of the series, the editors have brought together previously published articles and chapters. To facilitate reading and further discussion, they have divided this work into four parts: I The Legacy of John Courtney Murray II Public Theology and the Public Square III The Church's Public Role: U.S. Bishops and Commentators IV Particular Issues The editors present the full range of opinions within the Catholic Church today, allowing the reader to form his or her own judgment. Noteworthy is the dedication of this work to the late Richard A. McCormick, co-editor of the first eleven volumes.
