Moral Theology for the 21st Century Essays in Celebration of Kevin T. Kelly

by Julie Clague

Moral Theology for the 21st Century Essays in Celebration of Kevin T. Kelly Synopsis

A groundbreaking collection of essays on key themes, issues and concepts in contemporary moral theology and Christian ethics.

Moral Theology for the 21st Century Essays in Celebration of Kevin T. Kelly Press Reviews

The book's unity and strength arise from several elements. Most of the essays in some way challenge the magisterial status quo and all of them reflect directly or indirectly Kelly's concerns and influence. Most importantly, however, the essays share a pastoral sensibility - a concern for the person that is stronger than that the concern for doctrinal purity - that derives from Kelly himself. The challenges to the church's treatment of, for instance, the AIDS crisis and its attending controversies are rooted in the actual lives of those most affected. Kelly's conviction that the moral theologian must work with the heart of a pastor is evident throughout the book. No prior familiarity with Kelly's work is necessary to learn from these essays, but it is unlikely that many will finish the book without then reaching soon for Kelly's own work. - Eric Biddy, Anglican Theological Review 92:1 - Eric Biddy Anglican Theological Review As a public voice honoring the life and work of Kevin Kelly, this collection raises the bar on what such Festschriften can achieve...This Festschrift not only introduces readers to Kelly's wide range of influence (at least in the English-speaking world), but it also suggests that members of the guild commit to dialogically probe the depths of the tradition, to bring more experiences to the table, and to collaborate in finding what matters most in and for the real world. -Mary Jo Iozzio, Theological Studies, Sept. 2009
