Jesus Christ

The New Face of Social Progress
  • By Peter J. Casarella
Based on a careful reading of Pope Benedict's 2009 encyclical Caritas in Veritate (-Charity in Truth-), the essays in this substantial volume explore how an encounter with the person of Jesus Christ is the true basis for economic and social progress. The authors are experts in a wide range of disciplines -- theology, philosophy, biblical studies, political science, economics, finance, environmental science -- and represent a broad spectrum of Catholic thought, from liberal to conservative.
The first book in English to offer an overarching interpretation of Pope Benedict's groundbreaking encyclical, Jesus Christ: The New Face of Social Progress will inform anyone interested in Catholic social doctrine, and its depth of insight will offer fresh inspiration to serious followers of Jesus Christ.
