Product Description

The classic on Catholic social teaching with an emphasis on the option for the poor and economic inequality has been expanded to include Catholic teaching on care for the environment. Dorr demonstrates the development of these different areas of Catholic social teaching over time, highlighting their strengths and weakness. This expanded and revised edition of Option for the Poor includes five new chapters. The first deals extensively with the issue of the equality and complementarity of women. The next is a lengthy and quite critical examination of Pope Benedict's first encyclical, Deus caritas est. The next two chapters deal with his encyclical Caritas in veritate and the follow-up to it in the document from the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, "Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public Authority." The last of the new chapters is an extended examination of the issue of ecology as it has been treated in documents from Vatican over half a century.
