Catholic Social Teaching
This booklet examines how far Catholic social teaching represents a challenge to capitalist economics and offers a radical alternative. It puts forward practical suggestions as to how this teaching should influence our political choices and considers the practical implementation of the underlying ideals. The authours are upfront in their belief that for the Church to defend justice it must be prepared to challenge and oppose exploitation.
