Publisher's Description

With this handy guide, Catholic voters will come to understand their role in this, and every, election and will know how to form and use a Gospel-based conscience to discern major decisions. Drawing on the trusted and popular Catholic Update newsletter, the Catholic Update Guide to Faithful Citizenship helps committed Catholic voters participate fully in the political process by addressing some of the issues Catholics should consider before casting their votes—issues such as euthanasia, abortion, stem-cell research, social justice, immigration, capital punishment, same-sex marriage, ecological concerns, and health care.

Author Bio

The editors of Catholic Update have combined their bestselling issues to bring you the words of Richard Rohr, William Shannon, John Feister, Carol Luebering, and other popular authors on this topic

Editorial Reviews

Did you know there are 7 key points in Catholic social teaching that can help to guide one when making that important decision of whom to cast their vote? Each was introduced with a paragraph and then commented on later in the book.
  • 1. The right to life and the dignity of the human person
  • 2. Call to family, community, and participation.
  • 3. Rights and responsibilities.
  • 4. Option for the poor and vulnerable.
  • 5. Dignity of work and the rights of workers.
  • 6. Solidarity
  • 7. Caring for God's creation
This book could be very useful in the RCIA, a high school course (some will be 18 years old and voting in November) and for small group discussions. --SAGA
