She explores the Church's authentic teachings on the dignity of the human person as well as man's freedoms and obligations to society.

In Christian Social Principles, you'll also learn:The Church's teachings on communism, liberalism, and capitalismHow free will is the source of our obligations to societyWhy Communism is a natural offspring of LiberalismHow freedom of thought and action is a false concept that can degenerate into licenseWhy neither the “liberty” of Liberalism nor the “equality” of Communism can serve as the reliable cornerstone of a social orderWhy no one can be both a sincere Catholic and a true SocialistWhy norms of morality must be universal in scope across societyWhy the work of government will be of little avail without religion to enlighten the mindWhy justice alone can never bring about a union of hearts and minds Details Pages 208 ISBN or UPC 978-1-64413-616-4 Dimensions N/A Weight N/A SKU 6164 SKU d36171 Reviews There are no reviews yet.
