Coming soon - Resisting the Tyranny of the Banal

For quite some time, Roman Catholic moral theology has failed to convince. Catholic positions in relation to sexuality, death and dying, and more, are failing to persuade people, not just in the wider society but within Catholicism too. This book sees two reasons for this. First, the hegemony of secular perspectives. Second, the poverty of a Catholic account shorn of the theology of the Holy Spirit on which it was once based. The book seeks to do two things - push back against the dominant perspectives in our secular society and reconnect Catholic moral theology with the theology of the Holy Spirit on which it was originally dependent. It's coming out later this year with Lexington/Fortress Academic, please do check it out or contact me for more infomation.
