 Our Description

With religious freedom threatened, Roman Catholic Books is bringing back the finest volume about Catholic social teaching.

The real social teachings of the Church, developed over centuries by a long line of popes, saints and approved Catholic thinkers, are quite different from modern liberalism. This monumental volume, once a standard reference, covers the range of those teachings, their basis in Catholic doctrine, and how they apply to modern society. A sampling:

  • Which form of government is closest to the Catholic ideal
  • The family as "prior" to the state: a fundamental.
  • Principles of just taxation. When taxes are unjust. How citizens may respond
  • The benefits -- yes -- of social inequality
  • Private ownership: not just permissible, but necessary to social peace and welfare.
  • Why state monopoly of education is among the worst modern evils
  • The function of parents in education. The importance of home training.
  • Letter to Catholic educators from Pius XI, on sex education and co-education
  • The rights and responsibilities of labor unions. When strikes are permissible
  • The Golden Age of Christian civilization: not perfect, but it can teach moderns
  • The duties and rights of employers and employed. Catholic view of a just wage
  • Four basic types of states—only one the ideal for Catholics
  • Nine principles for a just democracy
  • Communism, socialism, Freemasonry: Histories & critiques

Detailed Table of Contents and 25-page index speed you to sound Catholic answers to more than 2000 questions Footnotes point you to hundreds of Church documents, primary sources and important references.
