The most scholarly handbook of this type with much documentation and a bibliography for each section. The approach is by way of the Scriptures, the Fathers, and the liturgy rather than by merely stating dogmatic principles. "The Law of Christ may not be the complete answer to the call for a new approach to moral theology… founded upon the positive values of the Christian life, [but] it is, nevertheless, a giant stride in the right direction" (Catholic Biblical Quarterly, XXV [April, 1963] , p. 117). Indexes in each volume.
