Handbook of Moral Theology
by Dominic M. Prummer, O.P.

Out Of Stock

Handbook of Moral Theology Quantity in Basket: None
Code: HMT
Price: $39.80

Generations of priests knew this as the standard reference on moral theology

One fail-safe answer to all questions about Catholic morals pre-Vatican II? "Look it up in Prummer." So much did priests and seminarians depend on the four-volume original that Fr. Prummer himself penned this one-volume compendium, which became an international standard through five editions. It remains an unfailingly solid guide for confessors, spiritual directors, and laymen.

In 500 packed pages, Fr. Prummer lays out the whole of Catholic moral teaching. The first part covers all questions of human conduct, broken down into these major categories:

  • Man's ultimate end
  • Human actions and the passions
  • Law
  • Conscience
  • Sin
  • Virtue
  • Faith and contrary vices
  • Hope and contrary vices
  • Justice and contrary vices
  • Fortitude and contrary vices

Part Two covers the Sacraments and the moral and disciplinary matters pertaining to them. 

A detailed 13-page topical Table of Contents and exhaustive index speed you to the answers to over 1500 questions.

Catholic reviewers hailed the original 1956 English edition:

"Excellent...clear and complete....Confessors will find it very helpful." -- Catholic World

"Clear and authoritative....Entirely dependable." -- The American Benedictine Review
