Product Description

Review

"Cessario argues for an intrinsic morality that could explain why a life of Gospel faith and right reason leads to virtue and delight. His efforts make the classical arguments of Aquinas available and articulate again at a moment when many will find them of great interest."

"In this second edition, Cessario presents a brief but thorough introduction to Christian virtue theory, specifically as expounded by Aquinas in his "Summa Theologiae". What is new here is a consideration of recent papal teaching (John Paul II's "Veritatis Splendor" and Benedict XVI's "Deus Caritas Est") as it relates to virtue theory. . . . The book is meant to be studied, not merely read, and so is most appropriate for graduate and advanced [students]. " -- "Choice"



"It is the author's intention to provide a general introduction to the Christian virtues and their role in ethics for students. A moral theology based on virtues represents an important element of the tradition. The author's main source is Thomas Aquinas. . . . The author's emphasis on the "imago Dei" as a theological category is a good starting point." --"Catholic Library World"

5.0 out of 5 stars Trusted Source on the Virtues 20 May 2015
By Virginia Lieto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Romanus Cessario O.P. does an excellent job at bringing the theological virtues of faith, hope and love to life. He also discusses the cardinal virtues of prudence, justice, temperance and fortitude. As a Catholic writer and public speaker, I find this book to be my "go-to" book for quotation citation on the theological and cardinal virtues. Everything within this book is in accordance with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This will be your trusted source on the theological and cardinal virtues, should you purchase this book.
