About the Author:

Jean Porter is John A. O'Brien Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana. Porter serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Religious Ethics and the British journal Studies in Christian Ethics.

From Library Journal:

Porter, a Roman Catholic moral theologian, shows the relevance of the greatest of medieval theologians to contemporary ethical reflection. She sees dialog about Aquinas as necessary to overcoming the recent fragmentation in Christian ethics and to bridging the gap between absolutism and proportionalism, between nature interpreted by science and the particularism of history/community, and various ideas of love as source of moral norms. An important book for moral philosophers and clergy, this book is recommended for seminary and large academic libraries.
