ABSTRACT
This paper explores the possibilities offered by the concept "practice" as it has been defined by philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre for a constructive dialogue between the Theology of the New Testament and Moral Theology. To this purpose, this paper 1.- Studies the contributions and promises of the pre-sent coming back of virtue ethics. 2.- Presents the concept of "practice" in the context of MacIntyre's interpretation of Aris-totelian ethics. 3.- Analyses the adequacy of this concept for describing Christian life, as it is witnessed by the New Tes-tament. 4.- Summarizes some of the conclusions and briefly shows some of the new perspectives that are opened.
