An educational resource designed for use in Catholic schools or youth programs. A general overview of issues is followed by several “moral dilemma” scenarios and questions that teens can discuss with their parents or youth minister or a parish education class.

Among the issues covered are abortion, capital punishment, child abuse, domestic violence, drugs and alcohol, divorce, eating disorders, sexuality and suicide. A section of the book summarizes the Catholic Church’s teaching on each of the issues.
