Summary

The Church's Best-Kept Secret is a short primer which lays out the basics of Catholic social teaching in a way accessible to the ordinary Catholic as well as to any other person of good will attempting to grasp this often profoundly misunderstood area of Church doctrine and practice.

Writing in everyday language for the non-scholar, award-winning writer Mark Shea concisely describes the roots of Catholic social teaching in Scripture and tradition and gives simple, practical examples of how it works in ordinary life. Sketching the meaning of the dignity of the human person, the common good, subsidiarity, and solidarity, Shea bridges the gulf in our politics and cultural warfare to make the case that Catholic social teaching, properly understood, is common sense, as well as the path to living a happier and more just common life for each human person.

Powerful book on our role a humans

This book challenged many of my beliefs about my role in acting out the Church's social teachings. it was well done, and both supported my current activities and pushed me to change other activities. it is helping me work through my role as a good Christian.
