Modern Catholic Family Teaching

Commentaries and Interpretations

A first of its kind critical engagement with the collected documents of Catholic Family Teaching

Catholic Family Teaching (CFT) has developed in parallel with Catholic Social Teaching (CST), yet has not similarly been critically explored as a documentary tradition. Modern Catholic Family Teaching redresses this imbalance through a collection of outstanding commentaries and interpretations of the primary texts and key developments of CFT.

Modern Catholic Family Teaching features academic commentary on magisterial texts that constitute primary sources of contemporary Catholic teaching on the family. Each chapter engages a moment in this tradition to invite critical academic engagement with CFT, a topic that increasingly bears weight across diverse areas of theological and ethical consideration.

This edited volume offers a clear understanding of the tradition's growth and development over 130 years, equipping scholars and students of theology to engage the pressing questions of our time.

Reviews

"Readers will find in this breakthrough volume an abundance of insight into the Catholic Church's guidance regarding the contours of family life. The wide-ranging essays by two dozen distinguished authors are not only consistently well-researched and firmly grounded in the relevant magisterial texts and events but also astute in applying established ethical principles to the specifics of how families live out key virtues amidst daunting challenges in the full array of global cultures. This most welcome scholarly achievement is destined to become an indispensable resource for anyone interested in how families may navigate the turbulent waters of the rapidly changing social contexts we inhabit today."—Thomas Massaro, SJ, professor of moral theology, Fordham University
