I learned more about the Catholic Faith and ethics from this book than from any other source in my entire life. This should be mandatory reading EARLY IN LIFE.

I have purchased three of Ron's books in Kindle format and I think they are outstanding- just what we've come to expect from our friend. Additionally, the e-book format is not only less expensive, but it enables me to carry around many different books (I believe I have more than 40 on my kindle at the moment) and have your choice at any moment without the weight of all that paper! I highly recommend the e-reader option, and our friend Ron's work specifically!

Sammy and Centurion,

thanks for the words of encouragement.

I still use the 'Catechism of Catholic Ethics' on a regular basis, and after nearly three years, it has become one of my main textbooks in my theology studies. I have recently bought a few more copies to give to classmates, as it is a resource that will last a lifetime. I'm amazed each time I read it at the amount of work that it contains. You'd think that a book of its size and content would have taken the best part of a decade to write.

Here is a parish resource site that recommends it as part of their faith formation programme:

http://sjeciowa.org/helping-your-par...h-moral-issues

When I went to amazon to order the copies, I saw the various 'ad hominem' negative reviews once again, which is terribly unfair. Those people obviously haven't used or even read the book.

So to any newer members who may be unfamiliar with the book, it would be a great one to have, as it's a definitive guide to all the controversial moral issues of today, under one cover. Anyone to whom I have given the book was delighted with it.

Thanks Shane. The book took me about a year and a half to write. But it is based on many years of studying and living the faith.

My eschatology books are much more popular than my books on ethics. I think this is true in general (based on Amazon book rankings) of books on Catholicism. Many Catholics are interested in the end times. Not as many are interested in learning basic teachings of Catholicism on faith and morals.
