Reviews - What do customers think about Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church?

The Church's Social Teaching Proclaims the Sanctity of Life  Dec 26, 2008
During every recent national election, "Catholic Social Teaching" has been cited, to downplay the primacy of sanctity of life issues. Within this 4 part, 13 chapter work, can justification be found for such an interpretation?
*Part 1
GOD'S PLAN OF LOVE FOR HUMANITY
THE CHURCH'S MISSION AND SOCIAL DOCTRINE
THE HUMAN PERSON AND HUMAN RIGHTS
PRINCIPLES OF THE CHURCH'S SOCIAL DOCTRINE
*Part 2
THE FAMILY, THE VITAL CELL OF SOCIETY
HUMAN WORK
ECONOMIC LIFE
THE POLITICAL COMMUNITY
THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY
SAFEGUARDING THE ENVIRONMENT
THE PROMOTION OF PEACE
*Part 3
SOCIAL DOCTRINE AND ECCLESIAL ACTION
*Conclusion
FOR A CIVILIZATION OF LOVE

After a detailed, comprehensive study of the Compendium, will you be able to downplay emphasis on Sanctity of Life concerns? Of course not! The Vatican's "Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church" offers absolutely no support for such! Only someone who does not truly understand Catholic Social Teaching - or someone who is deliberately misrepresenting it - could offer such an interpretation! The Sanctity of Life is at the very core of Catholic Social Teaching.

As per Pope John Paul II, "The inviolability of the person, which is a reflection of the absolute inviolability of God, finds its primary and fundamental expression in the inviolability of human life. Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights -- for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture -- is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition of all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination" (The Vocation and the Mission of the Lay Faithful in the Church & in the World, 1988).
 
Amazing  Jul 23, 2008
I wish I would have read this a long time ago. To the point and great read on Social teaching.
 
Great Book -- but NOT for Deacons  Feb 16, 2008
This compendium is surprisingly readable, and gives a broad view of the Church's glorious social teaching -- something which is not well understood by many. I am confident that in time, my copy will be dilapidated.
I must take issue, however with a reviewer who also gave five starts to the Compendium. He said it was "essential for deacons". But in the book's introduction, it is plainly stated that the book was primarily for Bishops, but also for priests, for men and women religious, for lay people, for Christians in non-Catholic communities, for those of other religions, and for those with no religion at all. In short, the book is for every human on this planet EXCEPT Catholic Deacons.
 
Tremdendous!  Feb 7, 2008
I'm one quarter the way through: reading slowly with pencil often in hand. This is a MUST READ for all who have grown tired of the way of the world. It offers so much tangible direction and as a result hope. "Hope" in the sense of what we are to be about.

Another reviewer suggested that a family might read it. Indeed! I've all but decided that it shall be the gift I give to those about whom I care come Christmas. Surely, some eyes might roll. But it is too precious of a "gift" not for some attempts to be made to put it on a lamp stand.
 
Good Citizenship  Dec 13, 2007
This is essentially a book about good citizenship. It can and should be read by any senior adolescent or adult person of good will. It should be on the bookshelf of any family raising children, just like Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, and parents should discuss it with their young as these are nearing adulthood. Likewise, it should be discussed in the junior and senior classes of any high school, and certainly again in college and university level courses of human sciences (e.g. Sociology).
The book is absolutely non-confessional. In fact you need not even be a Christian to appreciate it, just, as I said before, a person of good will. Of course, the reader will have to tolerate that the words God and Church are mentioned here and there, but there is no religious indoctrination per se. The practical concepts are bound to be convincing to most everyone.
