Life in society means more than just living together with others; it also means relating with others, giving oneself to others, and contributing to the good of all. In Beyond Good Intentions, author Juan Lorda shows that Christian morality is more than a list of do’s and don’ts but can in fact be summarized as “the art of living.” It guides Christians to live so that their actions are consistent with their inner convictions.

Juan Luis Lorda's Beyond Good Intentions shows today’s readers the beauty and reasonableness of Christian living. We are led to see that the essence of Christian morality is not an assemblage of abstract principles, but is a call to a sincere relationship with a real historical person: Jesus of Nazareth, the God–man who shares our life with us.
