“Erin Brigham provides an accessible introduction to the riches of the Catholic social tradition for twenty-first-century students. . . . The reflection questions, summaries, and vignettes in each chapter situate Catholic social teaching as a living tradition . . .

The book is easy to navigate and contains frequent sidebars and helpful chapter conclusions with additional information to enhance the reading experience.”
