9780813225852: A Catechism for Business: Tough Ethical Questions and Insights from Catholic Teaching

Many managers who believe themselves to be religious are all too willing to "check their religion at the door" of their workplaces. They may simply be ignorant of the implications of their faith for their business practices. Catholic teaching on business and economics has been described (with intentional irony) as the Church's "best kept secret." The Catholic Church has over the years developed extensive and detailed guidance for many areas of business. But this guidance is often buried within lengthy teaching documents that may not be easily accessible to the busy executive. Answers to specific moral questions may be tough to find. A Catechism for Business presents the teachings of the Catholic Church as they relate to more than one hundred specific and challenging moral questions that have been asked by business leaders. Andrew V. Abela and Joseph E. Capizzi have assembled the relevant quotations from recent Catholic social teaching as responses to these questions. Questions and answers are grouped under major topics such as marketing, finance, and investment. Business ethics questions can be too subtle for definitive yes/no answers, so the book offers no more and no less than church teaching on each particular question. Where the church has offered definitive answers, the book provides them. When the church has not, the book presents guidelines for reflection and insights into what one should consider in given situations. The book's easy-to-use question and answer approach invites quick reference for tough questions and serves as a basis for reflection and deeper study in the rich Catholic tradition of social doctrine.

From the Back Cover:

 
This is a fantastic repository!  It should be mandatory reading for any Catholic in business, and recommended reading for any non-Catholic interested in what the Church really teaches.
Patrick Lencioni, author of The Advantage and The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
 

The Church's social teachings are a "best-kept secret" because they are often presented as answers without questions.  Dr. Capizzi and Dean Abela have provided the questions, from the heart of the business enterprise, along with accurate but succinct responses from Catholic social doctrine.  In their expert hands, the teaching has a chance to be heard.
Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago
 
 
Work is not only a necessary activity but a beautiful expression of our creative nature, and this book is a vital resource for anyone who wishes to align work--and the workplace--according to God's love and vision of the human person. Authors Abela and Capizzi do a great service to Christians in providing the most relevant Catholic teachings on the matters of labor, business, employment, wages, economic systems, and a myriad of related issues so relevant and so contentious in today's world.
Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight, Knights of Columbus, and author, A Civilization of Love: What Every Catholic Can Do to Transform the World
 
 
Businessmen and theologians are like distant cousins, and often they're just not on speaking terms. If anything can bring them into conversation, it's this superb catechism, which achieves the minor miracle of being both erudite and readable.
John L. Allen Jr., Senior Correspondent, National Catholic Reporter
 
 
Every Catholic CEO needs to read and study this book.
Tim Busch, CEO, Pacific Hospitality Group and Chairman, Napa Institute
