3 reviews for Moral Theology: A Catholic’s Guide to Living the Good Life

  1. Rev. George E. D., CO

    2015 Spring Survey

    The courses are well structured and well organized. I was able to read the gospel just after I listened to the lecture and I got so much more out of lesson.

  2. Scott B., CO

    2017 Christmas Survey

    Excellent overview of a subject poorly understood in society and unfortunately by many in the Church

  3. Eamonn M., Ireland

    Summer 2018 Survey

    Fr Dennis Billy’s thoughts on the Good life and morality, his reflections on the Beautitudes leave you with the certainty that the Christian life is possible and for all of us. Thank you Fr Dennis
