Synopsis: Revised edition of a classic text long out of print--a moral analysis of making, keeping, and breaking personal commitments.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Farley explores how commitments, rooted in the story of God s love, are acts of free choice and love that yield a claim. Farley s reflections are also rooted in the concrete experiences of people who strive to be faithful to what they have claimed to love: My concern is to name something that I think is, after all, common to all of our lives an experience, a reality, perhaps a problem, a challenge, something that is sometimes a source of joy, sometimes a cause of tragedy.

In eight short chapters Farley explores the nature and meaning of commitment as it is played out in our lives, addressing love, fidelity, a sense of obligation, and covenant. She also reflects on whether each commitment must be kept, and what we should do if, despite our best efforts, our commitments break down.

About the Author: Margaret A. Farley, a Sister of Mercy, is a professor emerita of ethics at Yale University. She is the author of several books, including Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics.
