Regarding the 1991 edition, John P. Mullooly, MD, editor of The Linacre Quarterly, had this to say: “How good it is to read a book outlining the principles of medical ethics which adhere to solid Catholic teaching. Medicine and Christian Morality is such a book. Those who are involved in the health care field be he/she physician, nurse, administrator, pastoral care worker, interested layman, theologian or philosopher will find this volume written by Fr. Thomas J. O’Donnell a veritable treasure. It is with enthusiasm that we recommend this book to the public who are looking for answers in these confusing times in medicine.”
