Item description for Catholic Social Teaching: Learning & Living Justice by Michael Pennock...
Overview Catholic Social Teaching: Learning and Living Justice has been found in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Catholic Social Teaching: Living and Learning Justice introduces high school students to issues surrounding the key principles of the Church's rich body of social teaching that comes to us from the strong tradition of the writings of the popes, especially since Pope Leo XIII. Catholic Social Teaching attempts to understand how societies work and the values that ought to guide them. This text provides the latest up-to-date applications of the Church's social teaching as it draws on the new Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church and is organized around the U.S. Bishops' document, Sharing Catholic Social Teaching. The text highlights two important principles--the life and dignity of the human person and respect for life--as foundational principles that support concepts like the common good, the preferential option for the poor, solidarity among all the people, and stewardship of resources. This REVISED EDITION also addresses morality related to current issues such as the war on terror, global warming, the rights of United States immigrants, and "aliens", and stem cell research. The teacher's manual has been updated to a wrap-around format.
Publishers Description Summarizes seven key themes of Catholic social teaching as highlighted by the American bishops in Sharing Catholic Social Teaching.
