Item description for Essential Catholic Social Thought by Bernard V. Brady...

A rigorous and comprehensive review of Catholic social teaching, including excerpts of documents.

Publishers Description
This book provides a broad view of the basic features of the rich tradition of Catholic reflection and action on social issues. In the words of Brady, "the Catholic social tradition is about action and contemplation. It calls on persons to take responsibility for themselves and for their neighbors. It aims to reach the hearts and the minds of persons. . . . It seeks personal conversion and social transformation." Written in an accessible style and designed for a one-semester course, it presents the principles of Catholic social thought along with their historical development and abridged excerpts from relevant documents. Each chapter includes study/discussion questions and begins and ends with a traditional Catholic prayer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Essential Catholic Social Thought?

Excellent Overview of Catholic Social Teaching  Sep 20, 2009
I am currently using this as a text for an upper-level undergraduate course and have found it to be phenomenal. Brady offers a thematic overview of Catholic Social Teaching, which alone would make for an excellent book. What makes it even better is that he has given substantial portions of a number of the major CST documents. He has done an excellent job of striking the balance between offering excerpts that are far too brief and requiring students to read the entirety of each encyclical (or CST document). The excerpts are substantial and offer students a genuine sense of what is going on in the larger document, but they are not overwhelming. This is a book that anyone with any interest in CST should own and anyone teaching CST to undergraduates should use.
