 Our Description

William E. May



An Introduction to Moral Theology, Second Edition, offers a clear, complete, and convincing examination and explanation of Catholic doctrine.

Here - carefully documented, annotated, and indexed - is not only what the Church teaches but also why it is obligated to do so. And why its members are obligated to examine and to apply that teaching.

This updated and expanded edition of a text long trusted and widely used in colleges, universities, and seminaries, as well as in high schools and parish religious education programs, offers the latest Catholic teaching on moral theology, including:

  • Moral theology: its nature, purpose, and biblical foundation
  • Human dignity, free human action, virtue, and conscience
  • Natural law, moral absolutes, and sin
  • Christian faith and our moral life

Read why - and how - living what the Church teaches can transform hearts, minds, and souls.

"This completely revised edition of William E. May's book provides the necessary theoretical background for understanding what the Church teaches about such specific moral issues as bioethics and sexual ethics. This edition is strengthened by its inclusion of chapters devoted to the nature and renewal of moral theology, the scriptural foundations of moral theology, and the role of the virtues in our moral lives. These are among the new highlights in a book which serves as an ideal introduction to the Church's vision of our moral life in Christ."

- Mark S. Latkovic, S.T.D., Professor of Moral Theology,

Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Detroit
