Topics
related to Catholic social teaching emerge regularly
in American political and civic discourse, often
connected to discussions about religious freedom,
abortion, immigrant rights, racism, capital
punishment, and health care. This third edition of A
Concise Guide to Catholic Social Teaching by Rev.
Kevin E. McKenna incorporates the essential
teachings of Pope Francis in Evangelium
Gaudium, Laudato Si’, and Amoris Laetitia to offer a
clear, beginner-level reference tool and study guide
for Church leaders and other interested Catholics to
help them navigate this vast body of teaching.

Building on core themes of human dignity, community,
rights and responsibilities, option for the poor,
dignity of work, solidarity, and care of creation,
McKenna distills a vast amount of Catholic teaching
into easily digestible summaries, each carefully
referenced to its primary source and correlated to
pressing issues making today’s headlines.

The book
includes crucial teachings of the popes from Louis
XIII through Francis as well as from the United
States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Each chapter
concludes with questions for reflection and dialogue
and appendices provide tools for parishes and study
groups.

This practical and thorough guide remains a
perennial favorite for study and reference in
Catholic parishes, universities, and ministry
formation programs.
