"This book answers the question: how can we find a brief but solid summary of Catholic social teaching? This introduction is informed by the author's engagement with the scholarly literature, his long teaching experience, and his wise responses to current debates. This will be valuable in college classrooms, parish discussion groups, and interfaith community organizations."---David O'Brien, College of the Holy Cross/University of Dayton

"Presents Catholic Social Thought linked not only to its origins but to the alternative perspective it offers to key issues of the day. illustrates the movements, theological convictions and ideas through which the Church engages in the public sphere. A fine companion to his earlier work, Justice and Peace: A Christian Primer."---Judith A. Merkle, SNDdeN, Niagara University

"|A| lasting contribution to understanding the social implications of Christian commitment. It is a fresh and updated reflection on the central values of the Church's social doctrine that flow from the following of Jesus in contemporary society.---Daniel Groody. CSC. University of Notre Dame
