These seventeen essays by many distinguished contributors--including Seamus Heaney and Mary Robinson--celebrate the unique contribution Enda McDonagh has made to the field of theological ethics. This collection mirrors his interdisciplinary approach and expands the scope of theological ethics well beyond its traditional scope, transcending the boundaries of the discipline in many different directions. Artists, poets, politicians, and theologians reflect on the manner in which the imaginative, political, and religious dimensions of life intersect in local and global contexts. Some of the subjects explored include Church politics and HIV prevention, ethical globalization, justice and the developing world, the social role of the theologian, and religion and the visual arts.
