That’s why we feel guilty when we make wrong moral choices, but not when we make wrong non-moral choices. We may feel shame when we find out that we should have bought a cheaper TV or should have taken a different physical road, a short cut; but shame is not guilt.

Why do I give so many 5 star ratings. Well the first reason is I love reading. Secondly I want to complete a Doctorate in Philosophy. This essentially means I read an enormous volume of books, however, I do not have the time or inclination to read something which will not allow me to achieve my goal.

Peter Kreeft is a definitely a must read author. In my humble opinion he is quickly marching on to become the C.S. Lewis of the 21st century. Kreeft understates his case with precision writing that is to say, he is very easy to absorb then once finished the work of the author sets to work on the individual's mind in a manner just like Lewis. I realise this is a big call, however, this is the truth as I see it. Peter Kreeft is one individual who I would love to share a meal with however, I suspect dinner would conclude with brunch the following day. This is certainly not a sexual reference but one that simply says the conversation would go on and on. As I live over 20,000 km's away this is unlikely to happen.

Kreeft's writings, regardless of the book, underscores two essential principles. His work poses the question, then he provides two possible answers of equal regard but with quite different meanings. Kreeft generally does not provide all the answers, rather, he leads the reader to a point whereby they in turn make up their own mind. Therefore the reader becomes an active participant in the process.

Lastly, I do not have the time to spend reading worthless rubbish. The book is either truly exceptional therefore I carry on reading or the book does not value add my thinking and therefore ends up back on the shelf very quickly.

Read Peter Kreeft!

This is another of Peter Kreeft's typically illuminative books, on the largely-neglected topic of moral reasoning.

Kreeft spends the first part of the book simply establishing the basic truths that once upon a time were obvious, but not in the present day - that moral laws exist and are knowable by human reason; that they are "built into" the universe, and thus true whether we know them or not; that moral relativism is self-refuting; and that morality ultimately derives from God (in Dostoevsky's words, "If there is no God, then everything is permissible").

His discussion of the Greatest Good is also very sharp, especially in its discussion of ends and means.

Part Four, in which he engages topics of Sex, Abortion, and Truth in greater detail, is really the meat of the book, and where Kreeft most directly engages modern culture. His discussion of sex in terms of sacredness is wonderfully clear - understanding sex as sacred simultaneously avoids both errors of hedonism on the one hand, and repression on the other. "Christian morality is based on human nature, on the kind of thing we are, and the kind of thing sex is. It is not the changeable rules of a game we designed, but the unchangeable rules of the operating manual written by the Designer of our human nature."

Kreeft's bit on our society's confusion between sex and money is utterly incisive - we use sex as a mere means of exchange (of pleasure), but we erect all manner of legal protections around money, treating it as virtually sacred, even expecting it to reproduce and grow. Priceless.

Kreeft's aim here is not ethereal or theoretical - this is not pie-in-the-sky, "out there" moral philosophy. He means to give real people real tools for living real lives in the real world, and in this, he succeeds admirably

Making Choices: Practical Wisdom for Everyday Moral Decisions

Peter Kreeft explains morality and choices in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner. If you would like peace of mind in the decisions you make in life, you can do no better than start by reading Peter's book. Then put into practice what you learn. He's a delight to read. He removes the fuzz of so much of today's 'woolly thinking' on the subject; he exposes the "if it feels good, do it.....", wishy-washy lifestyle choices for what they are; and he deals with the practical nitty gritty of today. He avoids the "quicksand", and refuses to deal with the philosophical imponderables that 99.99% of us will never be faced with.
Eminently readable; a clear exposition; great stuff by an author who really knows his subject. A refreshing light in today's gloom 'n doom.
