This volume has evidenced its value through four editions and has been widely studied, especially by theological ethicists and Roman Catholic physicians. Religious arguments at the end of the 17th century between Catholics and Protestants produced the Enlightenment, which sought to introduce a religion of reason. Enlightened thinkers have used science in an effort to transcend religious quarrels. While the quarrels persist, even most Protestant ethicists agree that "Catholics have produced the most systematically developed and officially formulated version of Christian ethics." The authors' purpose in this revision is "to provide a contemporary study of health care and the ethics of health care from the perspective of Catholic teaching and theological investigation."
