Indeed, it offers us a rich treasure of insights about the nature of man, his eternal destiny, the sanctity of marriage, and the important role of the family in building a coherent and harmonious society.Catholic Social Teaching offers a unified worldview. What the Church says about the family is inextricable from what she says about the poor, and what she says about the Eucharist informs the essence of her teachings on education, the arts — and even government.You will step away from these pages with a profound understanding of the root causes of the ills that afflict our society, and — thanks to Anthony Esolen — you will be well equipped to propose compelling remedies.Only an authentically Catholic culture provides for the stable and virtuous society that allows Christians to do the real work that can unite rich and poor.We must reclaim Catholic Social Teaching if we are to transform our society into the ideal mapped out by the Church: a land of sinners, yes, but one enriched with love of God and neighbor and sustained by the very heart of the Church's social teaching: the most holy Eucharist. Endorsements An unapologetic defense of marriage and family by America's best Catholic writer.Fr. C. John McCloskeyThe lively mind of Professor Esolen is incapable of cliché, and he is artful in detecting the platitudes which have misled much of our culture's understanding of the social order.Fr. George RutlerAnthony Esolen's brilliant analysis of liberty, marriage, family, and other key issues of Catholic Social Teaching deserves to be a standard text in moral theology and catechesis.Fr. Peter John Cameron, O.P.Freshness and insight are always evident in Anthony Esolen's writing. It's nothing less than a minor miracle that he's maintained those rare qualities in this illuminating treatment of one of the most poorly understood subjects: Catholic Social Teaching. This is a splendid — an essential — book.Robert Royal Details Pages 208 ISBN or UPC 978-1-622821-82-2 Dimensions N/A Weight N/A SKU 1822 SKU d21839 Reviews There are no reviews yet.
