 Our Description

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.

In the newly updated ministry tool and pastoral resource, Catholic social teaching is enlivened with material of the past decade from papal documents and the US Catholic Bishops. A Concise Guide to Catholic Social Teaching includes a thematic homily guide, historical charts, papal biographies, a sample penance service, links to online support materials, an expanded glossary, and new questions for self-study or group conversation.

Building on the core themes of human dignitycommunityrights and responsibilities,option for the poordignity of worksolidarity, and care of creation, priest and teacher Kevin E. McKenna expertly distills Catholic social teaching into easily digestible summaries. He provides clear teaching and insight on such issues as religious freedom, rights to privacy and self-determination, and the value of the common good. This book is perfect for ministry formation and as an ancillary resource for RCIA.

"A true treasure and necessary companion for those who want to understand how Catholic social teachings relate to our daily and communal lives. McKenna writes clearly and organizes his materials to facilitate easy reference through excellent summaries and guided theological reflections."
