This straightforward book provides simple and reliable explanations of what the Catholic Church teaches and why. The book provides quick answers to questions on moral issues, explains why the Church has a fixed opinion on certain matters, and helps put into perspective those issues on which Catholics are free to dissent. This much-needed book-- · tackles hot-potato areas of sexuality, family life, medical ethics, social justice, and more. · shows how official Church positions are not arbitrarily imposed but arise naturally from human nature. · provides solid help in reaching one's own decision on moral matters. · is written in everyday language, neither "do's and don'ts" nor theological jargon. · ends each chapter with thoughtful "discussion starters."
