Faith and Reason and the Consistent Ethic of Life
Summary: I. Faith and Reason in Evangelium Vitae. II. Faith and Reason and the Consistent Ethic of Life. III. Conclusion.
The rich text of Evangelium vitae raises numerous themes of great importance, perhaps even greater importance now than at the time of its publication in 1995. This reflection looks at the relationship of faith and reason in Pope St. John Paul II’s Encyclical, and how both faith and reason help us to understand better the relationship among various issues important to the life and flourishing of the human person.
