 Our Description

Rev. Edward J. Hayes, Rev. Msgr. Paul J. Hayes & James J. Drummey

At a time in history when there is such widespread confusion about the role of marriage and family there is a great need for solid information about these essential building blocks of society. That information is presented in both clear and practical terms in Catholicism and Society.

Starting with the Christian role in society in light of the Beatitudes, this book offers valuable insights and solid advice on the purposes of marriage: the interplay of husbands and wives, parents and children: the teenager's Four D's (dating, drink-ing, chugs, and driving): the ever spreading plagues of contraception. abortion, and euthanasia: and the importance of prayer in the transforming of families and nations.

Catholicism and Society quotes freely from Vatican II, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and such important papal documents as Evangelium Vitae in setting forth the principles by which a truly Christian society must live. It also applies those principles to such social issues as the role of women in society. the treatment of the elderly, racial discrimination, morality in public life, secular human-ism, cults, and the New Age movement.

Because this book reminds us of our obligation to bring the light of Christ into a society darkened by sin and selfishness. it can be an effective tool for lively discussion at the high school, college. or adult level. It will help Catholics to make Jesus better known to others through the witness of their own lives.

G.K. Chesterton once said that "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting. It has not been tried." Catholicism and Society will help make Christianity a vital force in many areas of modern society.
