Overview

The language of Catholic social teaching emerges regularly in American public discourse, often connected to discussions about religious freedom, abortion, immigrant rights, racism, and capital punishment. In this thoroughly revised volume, Kevin E. McKenna provides a clear, primer-level reference tool to help readers navigate this vast body of Catholic teaching.

Building on the core themes of "human dignity, community, rights and responsibilities, option for the poor, dignity of work, solidarity," and "care of creation," priest and teacher Kevin E. McKenna expertly distills Catholic social teaching into easily digestible summaries. He sheds light on such issues as religious freedom, rights to privacy and self-determination, and the value of the common good. This newly-updated, practical book includes pertinent material of the past decade from papal documents and the US Catholic Bishops, links to online support materials, an expanded glossary, and new questions for self-study or group conversation.
