Juan Luis Lorda presents a brief manual on ethics, based on the classes he gives in this subject at the University of Navarra. He explainsin a current, positive and profound way some principles of philosophical ethics and Christian morality, turning to classical philosophers and the great representatives of Christian theology, in addition to the Magisterium of the Church. The book is divided into three parts: Truth (what is morality, nature, order of loves, human weakness, freedom), Respect (love of neighbor, transmitting life, the roots of man) and Grace (the mystery of Christ, his body and spirit).
