Now Includes a Survey of the Popes' Statements on Building a "Civilization of Love"
Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, surveys the history-changing ideas of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, and brings a message of inclusion and hope in the midst of a battle between the culture of death and the culture of life, providing a road map to help Christians understand their role in the world.
As Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Carl Anderson is the leader of the world's largest fraternal organization of Catholic laymen. Named by Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II to several Vatican commissions, Anderson is a member of the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pontifical Council for the Laity, and the Pontifical Academy for Life, and is a consultor to the Pontifical Council for Social Communications and the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
“Few elements of Catholic social teaching have been more forcefully stated, or more regularly ignored, than our calling to bring Christian teachings to bear on social, political, and economic issues. Anderson seeks to bring that message home.”
“Anderson artfully weaves theory and practice, giving us a rare specimen indeed: a practical guide for idealists.”
“Anderson has written a book brimming with insights into the transforming power of Christian faith. A Civilization of Love is both a call to personal holiness and a handbook for Catholics who are prepared to take seriously Christ’s command to his disciples to be ‘salt and light’ in the world.”
By embracing the culture of life and standing with those most marginalized . . . Christians can change the tone and direction of our culture. Anderson demonstrates that we can come together on the centrality of loving and caring for others
