Your Life in Christ: Foundations in Catholic Morality focuses on the essential message of Christ's moral teaching, the importance of love of God and neighbor. The text covers the major points from the "Life in Christ" section of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, pulling together these elements by developing nine essential steps for living a Christian moral life in the Catholic tradition. These steps include:
Understanding the nature of being human
Guiding moral decision-making with intellect
Understanding the law's relationship to freedom and being responsible for transgressions
Imitating Jesus and living the Beatitudes
Forming the conscience and strengthening resistance to peer pressure
Repenting and forgiving others
Thanking God for life by loving God above all else
Loving your neighbors
