About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


In Acting on Conscience, Jesuit priest and professor of law Frank Brennan draws upon his decades of study and work in areas of law, religion, politics and social justice. Author of works such as The Wik Debate and Tampering with Asylum, with his latest offering Brennan seeks to reconcile the place of religion and conscience in modern democracies. Brennan draws upon issues such as the debate on RU486 (the 'abortion drug'), and the future of political and legal systems. Of note are his reflections upon the 2004 US election, where he was able to experience first-hand the religious influence on American politics. Brennan provides a thorough and non-sensationalised account of how religious faith is entwined with democracy, and how it can be perverted by over-simplification. The book is not about any one faith, but instead the role of the conscience, particularly religious conscience. It remains, however, primarily aimed at a readership if not Christian, at least raised in a Christian background. There is also a heavy focus upon Catholicism, undoubtedly due to Brennan's background, which may not engage all readers. Well written and argued, Acting on Conscience is an important piece in the nation's debate on politics and public life. Michael Wright is a former bookseller
