Item description for God, Society and the Human Person: The Basics of Catholic Social Teaching by Edward T. Mechmann...

Overview
Catholic Social Teaching concerns the right ordering of society, so that its members may fulfill their earthly vocations and attain their eternal destiny. It has a rich and venerable tradition reaching back to the very earliest days of the Church and has been expounded by the greatest thinkers, in the Church from St. Augustine to St. Thomas Aquinas to Popes Leo XIII and John Paul II. Despite this history, however Catholic social teaching has often been misunderstood or inadequately explained. It has been used to further partisan political agendas or dismissed as being too theoretical for practical application to the "real" world. The purpose of this book is to draw together and to organize Catholic social teaching as found in the Catechism Of The Catholic Church and other Church documents, and to arrange that teaching according to its major foundational principles and themes. The goal is to provide a reasonable and very readable overview of the social doctrine of the Church along with some examples of its practical application. In this way, the relationship between the social doctrine of the Church and other dogmas of the faith may more clearly be seen and its relevance to real problems in the "real" world made strikingly apparent.
