Christians have agreed, as have others, that preference should go to some extent to one's nearest, and also to some extent to the neediest.

Christians have agreed, as have others, that preference should go to some extent to one's nearest, and also to some extent to the neediest. However, to what extent should we give preference to which group? And suppose these two preferences come into conflict, as they frequently do? This book provides the fullest contemporary treatment of these issues.

In recent years the study of Christian ethics has become an integral part of mainstream theological studies and there is now a more widely-held view that Christian ethics is actually central to Christian theology as a whole. Theologians increasingly have had to ask what contemporary relevance their discipline has in a context where religious belief is on the wane, and whether Christian ethics has anything to say in a multi-faceted and singularly complex secular society

Anthony Bash offers a vigorous restatement of the Christian view of forgiveness in critical dialogue with those both within and without the Christian tradition. Forgiveness is a much more complicated subject than many theologians recognize.

After finding considerable scriptural support for the value of non-human creation before God, Northcott thinks the answer is in the 'cosmic covenant' and he articulates a theology of interelatedness that avoids the pitfalls of radical Greek dualism on the one hand and the extreme monism of ecofeminism and the Gaia hypothesis on the other.

This book provides a full treatment of an issue which is particularly pressing: when the claims of the nearest conflict with the claims of the neediest, as they constantly do, where should preference go? Professor Hallett focuses first on a specific, representative case, pitting the lesser need of a son against the greater need of starving strangers

Christians have agreed, as have others, that preference should go to some extent to one's nearest, and also to some extent to the neediest. However, to what extent should we give preference to which group? And suppose these two preferences come into conflict, as they frequently do? This book provides the fullest contemporary treatment of these issues. The author brings to bear all the resources of theological and philosophical reflection on a single representative case, and from the single example, sheds light on a wide range of comparable cases, both private and public.

Father Hallett, a Jesuit philosopher, explores the question of whether people are more obligated to help those nearest to them (i.e. family) or those most in need regardless of distance. As such, this book is an exercise in Jesuit casuistry, or cases of conscience. But it's a frustrating read that is more rooted in the extremist philosophical rhetoric of Peter Singer than in the via media of Aristotle and Aquinas. In fact, Hallet finds fault with Aquinas, arguing that people should help those most in need before they give luxuries to their children like a college education. The case he gives is so far removed from everyday human experience, and his solution so far beyond ordinary human capacities, that the book is also impractical as a guide to moral conduct. More an exercise in abstract reasoning than pastorally applicable moral thinking, this book is brilliantly written but ultimately of little practical use other than as an exercise in philosophical reasoning. One wishes Fr. Hallett had chosen a more realistic and accessible case for moral discussion, as he is clearly an intelligent philosopher.

The question of priorities is given concrete shape with reference to a case described by Cambridge philosopher A. C. Ewing nearly fifty years ago. Should a man prefer and provide for the needs of his own son for a university education, which today might cost upwards of $100,000? Or should he employ those same considerable resources to help alleviate the misery and suffering of many more numerous people than are represented by a single son? The book is a detailed analysis and critique of the various responses to the issues raised by Ewing's case. Ewing himself seemed inclined to prefer the son over the starving. Hallett, however, suggests in light of New Testament themes (Chapter 3) and Patristic thought (Chapter 4), that, even in spite of the elevation of concerns for self-preference in Thomistic (Chapter 5) and contemporary arguments (Chapter 6), "it would be better for the father to assist the starving rather than his son, or for parents generally to favor the destitute over their less needy children" (116). The book is, in the best tradition of Roman Catholic casuistry, a detailed exploration of an issue (replete with arguments, counter-arguments, objections and replies) that seeks to investigate a particular moral dilemma so as to shed light on more general issues and exemplify broader moral principles. While the scholastic attention to detail can be intimidating, the occasional narrative glimpses into lives that have sacrificed for the sake of the neediest (see, for example, p. 94 on Suzie Valdez, "Queen of the Dump"), engage readers and leave them open and vulnerable to a challenge that might require many to reassess their own priorities.
