In these two volumes, Alban McCoy writes in jargon-free language to intelligent people seeking to understand moral issues in a Christian context. McCoy breaks down the first principles of morality, expounding on what makes a moral judgment separate from a scientific one, and asking how Christian revelation shapes our understanding of morality as opposed to other ethical systems. He also discusses issues that are particularly relevant to the Catholic faith, addressing tough questions relating to divorce, the papacy, ordination, good and evil, and the God’s existence. McCoy then explains how these theoretical discussions engage with the realities of day-to-day life. Throughout these volumes, McCoy writes in a clear and easy-to-follow voice without sacrificing depth and nuance, clarifying tough passages without ever spoon-feeding the reader.
The Logos editions of these texts allow you to easily connect McCoy’s text with key primary sources like Aquinas, Augustine, and many others. Scripture references appear on mouseover, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your library. You can perform powerful searches by topic, and take the conversation with you on your tablet or phone.
