When the Vatican issued the Instruction on Respect for Human Life in 1987, a chorus of dissenting voices from within and without the Church was raised against it. Creative Love: The Ethics of Human Reproduction, a collection of trenchant essays by experts in the areas of law, medicine, politics, philosophy, and theology, is a comprehensive examination – and defence – of the Church’s understanding of marriage, sexuality, and the family. Beginning with an inquiry into the way subjectivism has affected ethical thought, the book moves on to the nature of marriage and the human person, and concludes with practical – and pastoral – consideration.
