Spirituality emerged as a distinct academic discipline in the later twentieth century. In its Christian form, study of spirituality may be in dialogue with traditional theological disciplines like scripture and systematic theology, but it also forges connections with psychology, sociology, aesthetics, literature, and other areas of academic interest. As spirituality asserts its broad humanistic interdisciplinarity, and moral theology emerges from its fixation on sin to address broader questions of human formation and Christian discipleship, the need for the two disciplines to be in dialogue is clear.

This volume comprises three sections, each of which can be seen as a stage in the dialogue of ethics and spirituality. As usual, the editors allow prominent voices from both ends of the spectrum (and in between) to be heard, thereby providing readers with a balanced collection of writings from the most significant figures in this field.
