Reviews - What do customers think about Companion to the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church?
Useful for catechesis Apr 23, 2010
I teach the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church in a formation program for permanent deacons. It is NOT an easy read. One of the men asked about a "Compendium for Dummies," and I was very surprised to find this book, designed for use in parish religious instruction in the Republic of Ireland. It simplifies and explains some difficult parts of the Compendium, particularly Part I, and it offers a quick overview of the material in Part II. I am going to recommend this book as a supplement for my students who are baffled by the sometimes-ponderous Compendium, and--despite its Irish focus--I think it would be useful as an introduction to Catholic social teaching in adult education classes in the US as well.
