ABSTRACT
[In this initial segment of this year's "Notes on Moral Theology," the author provides a survey of the literature centering on fundamental moral theology published over the last three years or so. He focuses in part one on a variety of Festschriften honoring major ethicists; in part two he addresses writings on God, sin, virtue, globalization, and research. Throughout the recent publications noted, one observes moral theologians looking not to define two exclusive sides of a debate but rather struggling to incorporate a more inclusive vision.]
