Marcus Mescher, PhD, Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio, specializes in Catholic Social Thought and moral formation. He gives presentations to parishes and schools on a variety of topics, including the theology of Pope Francis and theories and practices for justice and peace. He writes on numerous dimensions of the moral life, ranging from ecological ethics to marriage and family life to the impact of digital devices and social media on identity, agency, and relationships. He has authored numerous articles and book chapters. His work appears in both academic and popular publications, including the Journal of Moral Theology and the Journal of Catholic Social Thought, America magazine and National Catholic Reporter. He published his first book, The Ethics of Encounter: Christian Neighbor Love as a Practice of Solidarity, with Orbis in 2020 and developed the Fratelli Tutti Study Guide for Paulist Press, in 2021.
