Product Description

Among his lasting contributions, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin is remembered for what he called a "consistent ethic of life" that linked a range of moral issues including abortion, capital punishment, war, and social justice. This "seamless garment" approach was widely viewed as a radical and thorough attempt to bring basic insights from the New Testament and Catholic tradition to bear on the full range of social and moral concerns. Complementing a previous volume, The Seamless Garment, which collected all of Bernardin's writings on the subject, Thomas Nairn has gathered in this volume a series of essays by leading Catholic ethicists to assess the reception and ongoing relevance of the "consistent ethic of life."

Contributors include:

  • Thomas Nairn
  • James J. Walter
  • Ron Hamel
  • James Keenan
  • Patricia Beattie Jung
  • Elizabeth Brinkman
  • Regina Wentzel Wolfe
  • M. Therese Lysaught
  • Dawn M. Nothwehr
  • Thomas A. Shannon.

Thomas A. Nairn, a Franciscan Friar, is Erica and Harry John Family Professor of Catholic Ethics and Director of Health Care Mission Leadership at Catholic Theological Union.

Publisher's Description

Ten ethicists turn their attention to the legacy of Cardinal Joseph Bernardin's Consistent Ethic of Life in the twelve years since he died in 1996. Bernardin's "seamless garment" ethic was seen as one of the most radical and thorough attempts to bring basic insights from the New Testament and Catholic tradition to bear on the questions of war, abortion, and birth control. The debates sparked by Bernardin's gambit became one of the most productive dialogues between Catholics and the rest of American civil society in the two hundred years of this nation's existence.
