  1. Paulist Fr. Richard c. Sparks is a compelling speaker and a deep thinker. Having heard him some years ago, I was glad to see his Contemporary Christian Morality: Real Questions, Candid Responses. Sparks asks and answers 100 questions for those who would have the abundant life promised by Jesus. He asserts that Christian morality is not just about an individual facing life’s fundamental choices, but about the community called church living, loving and keeping commitments.
    I especially appreciated the answer to Question 96 about the unforgivable sin. The pastoral Sparks responds that anyone who would worry about having committed such a sin has obviously not done so. That person’s care is, ultimately, the sign of abiding faith.
