Reviews - What do customers think about Global Population from a Catholic Perspective?

Innovative Religious Approach to Population Issues  Mar 3, 2000
The role of the Catholic Church in the global population challenge is the specific focus of John Schwarz in this book, evaluating both positive and negative aspects. He writes an introduction for "non-experts", for educated laity, Christian and non-Christian. The book will be useful to the general interested reader as well as in academic settings: in university courses in ethics and religious studies, in Christian and Catholic social philosophy and theology. Schwarz surveys official Church statements along with the Vatican's role in the United nations, and new emphases in moral theology which affect population issues. The role of the Church in the modern world after Vatican II is explored. He also examines how these Catholic factors interact with contemporary science and environmental concerns. Arguing respectfully and carefully within the Church's own tradition, he recommends changes in the Church's official stand on population issues. Pope John Paul II recently completed his 90th trip abroad, symbolizing the (admittedly controversial) prominence of the Catholic Church on the global horizon. This book evaluates that prominence, pro and con, as it touches the enormous global phenomenon of expanding population. The author does not argue that our world is "overpopulated", leaving that assessment to demographers. But he does emphasize the enormous acceleration of global population from one billion in the past two centuries -- - to six billion currently. This has exacerbated the poverty of millions, placed severe pressures on the environment, and contributed to political destabilizations. However, these phenomena are aggravated at least as much by first World consumerism as by Third fertility rates. As one of those "educated laity" for whom Schwarz writes I need not agree with every line in his book to recognize it as a serious, worthy demonstration of religious scholarship coming to grips with one of the toughest challenges facing humankind today. Written in an accessible style he clarifies but does not oversimplify complex realities. A leading demographer, not a Catholic, called the book "courageous, compassionate and constructive." I agree.
