The Works of Mercy is a new spin on an old and worthy topic: a distinctive Catholic morality. Keenan brings together social problems, personal ethics, and Catholic prayer and liturgy to create what might be termed a 'moral spirituality.' In this wonderful and wise treatment, the corporal and spiritual 'works of mercy' are no mere works-they are joyful orientations of Christian faith and hopeful pathways of human solidarity. -- Lisa Sowle Cahill, J. Donald Monan Professor of Theology, Boston College
The Works of Mercy is a remarkable book which weaves together clear-sighted social analysis and profound theological insight. It is rich in anecdote, bringing to the surface the complexity and richness of the everyday, and from which Keenan's incarnational theology is wrought. This beautifully written book is a joy to read. -- Linda Hogan, Professor of Ecumenics, Trinity College Dublin
Father James Keenan, SJ, is both one of the brightest and one of the most accessible of Catholic moral theologians. He brilliantly combines vast learning, a lucid writing style, and the ability to offer real-life examples, to enable his readers to live virtuous, compassionate and joyful lives as Christian men and women. -- James Martin SJ, author of My Life with the Saints
