    In my 21 years of teaching high school theology and philosophy in a Jesuit institution, I’ve only found one textbook (I much prefer primary texts) I truly liked and it’s An Intro to Catholic Ethics. Longtin and Peach do an excellent job providing an accessible resource for students to understand the relationship between secular and Catholic ethics. They confront relativism as the chief obstacle to studying ethics and give appropriate credit to Aristotle, Kant, and the Utilitarians in shaping questions of virtue, intent and circumstances in the grand picture of human life. I would like to see a bit more enthusiasm for the difference the Catholic perspective makes. Nevertheless, the authors appreciate the nuance and deep connections Catholics make to secular thinkers. After all, what would Aquinas be without Aristotle? Readers will not find a “Catholics are completely right and secular thinkers are completely wrong” vibe coursing throughout the text. Instead, one finds important interplay and influence from secular thinkers without concluding ethics are merely personal opinion.
