Andrew KimAndrew Kim (Ph.D., The Catholic University of America) is an assistant professor of moral theology at Walsh University in North Canton, OH.  He defended his dissertation entitled “Thomas Aquinas on the Connection of the Virtues” in October of 2012. The aim of his first book, An Introduction to Catholic Ethics Since Vatican II (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, forthcoming 2015), is to provide a comprehensive overview of the development of Catholic ethics in the wake of the Second Vatican Council (1962–1965). In this book, he investigates Catholic responses to questions of
moral theology in all four principal areas: Catholic social teaching, natural law, virtue ethics, and bioethics. Beginning from the moral vision revealed through the person of Jesus Christ, and engaging historical sources such as Augustine and Aquinas, he also addresses contemporary controversies surrounding abortion, contraception, labor rights, exploitation of the poor, and just war theory. Its balance of complexity and accessibility serves both students of theology and general readers. He is married to Caitlin Kim, and they have five children: Theo, Lucy, Zoë, Phoebe, and Moira. Professor Kim was confirmed in 2007 at Corpus Christi Church in New York City.
