In Paul and Virtue Ethics, Daniel Harrington and James Keenan build
upon their successful collaboration Jesus and Virtue Ethics to
discuss the apostle Paul's teachings as a guide to interpret
theology and ethics today. Examining Paul's writings, the authors
investigate what they teach about the basic questions of virtue
ethics: Who am I?; Who do I want to become?; And how do I get
there? Their intent is not to provide stringent rules, but to
awaken discovery and encourage dialogue. The book first considers
the concept of virtue ethics_an approach to ethics that emphasizes
moral character_and Paul's ethics in particular. Next, the authors
focus on the virtues of faith, love/charity, and hope as treated by
Paul and Thomas Aquinas. Closing the book with reflections on the
roles of other virtues (and vices) in individual and communal
Christian life, the authors discuss various issues in social ethics
and sexual morality as they are dealt with in Paul and in Christian
virtue ethics today.
