Publisher's Description

A Vision of Justice: Engaging Catholic Social Teaching on the College Campus draws together the insights of social scientists, historians, and theologians in order to introduce readers to central topics in Catholic Social Teaching and to provide concrete examples of how it is being put into action by colleges and college students.  The authors bring their disciplinary backgrounds and knowledge of Catholic Social Teaching to the exploration of the issues, making the book suitable for use in a wide range of courses and settings. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter help readers to think about issues raised in the essays and to think creatively about Catholic Social Teaching in an ever-changing world. The authors invite readers to join them in engaging contemporary thought and experience in the light of Catholic Social Teaching and the college campus.

Editorial Reviews

"[A] collection of intellectually stimulating, historically rooted, and empirically grounded essays. . . . [They] address the challenge we all face: to make CST no longer the ’best-kept secret.’"
Kathleen Maas Weigert, PhD; Carolyn Farrell, BVM Professor of Women and Leadership; Assistant to the Provost for Social Justice Initiatives; Loyola University Chicago



The second special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for Africa had the theme: The Church in Africa in the Service of Reconciliation, Justice and Peace (October 2009). The post-synodal exhortation Africae Munus of Benedict XVI gives the way forward, namely, that Africa must be committed to the search of peace in the continent. . . . Catholic universities should be involved in Education for Peace through having visions that are informative, formative and transformative and which ensures sustainable peace and reconciliation. This requires that peace studies be mainstreamed in university curricula. The book, A Vision of Justice, comes very handy at this time when there is need to learn how others have addressed challenges facing them. The book will be an addition to the scarce resources needed in matters of justice and peace."
Fr. Peter I. Gichure, Catholic University of Eastern Africa
From the foreword of the African edition of A Vision of Justice
