The Ten Commandments (Student Text): Case Studies in Catholic Morality
Author: Eileen Flynn
The Ten Commandments: Case Studies in Catholic Morality is a single source that summarizes Catholic teaching around the Ten Commandments. Thirty case studies related to real-life issues and dilemmas addressed by each commandment make up the heart of this text and remind students of the central importance of the Ten Commandments as a source for moral decision-making along with contemporary ways the Commandments can be applied in their own lives.
The text addresses both every day issues of morality faced by teens, such as cheating on exams, using alcohol and drugs, sex before marriage—along with wider and new societal issues including the use of embryonic stem cells for medical research, responsibility for environmental problems, and the proper use of money.
The Ten Commandments: Case Studies in Catholic Morality is intended as an ancillary resource for students to accompany their study of Catholic morality. The text is a helpful partner to any theology class to help students review current applications of the Ten Commandments. The book is also applicable as a resource for teens participating in a high school youth ministry program.
