9780824526665: The World as It Could Be: Catholic Social Thought for a New Generation

Providing insight and into the world's most pressing concerns--those of human dignity and rights, globalization, religious liberty and world peace--bestselling author and Theologian Thomas D. Williams adds his reassuring voice to the panoply of issues that engage Christians in the public sphere. One of the most trusted and dynamic voices from the Catholic community, Dr. Williams helps Catholics step back from today's controversies and understand Catholic teachings in a deeper way. Addressing the most heated debates ripped from national headlines and fervently discussed among Catholics--from abortion and capital punishment to global governance to the economy--Dr. Williams draws upon his years of teaching and research in this sophisticated yet accessible analysis of the moral dilemmas and political challenges that Catholics face every day. Examining these moral conflicts, and the often opposing forces of individual rights versus those of the community, Dr. Williams speaks to Catholics and non-Catholic alike in this examination of the Catholic faith, its influence in the world, and what it teaches millions of followers regarding social justice.

Review:

The World as it Could Be offers a thoroughly understandable explanation of the richness of Catholic social thought applied to a broad range of contemporary moral challenges. Most importantly, Father Williams explains how the truth about the dignity of the human person—rooted in God’s creation of Man in His image—has shaped Catholic social teaching about the ‘new things’ challenging this dignity from Pope Leo XIII to Pope Benedict XVI. The result is a remarkable set of insights about the ordering of society that best promotes integral human development.”  —Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House

“This is an important book—a richly sourced, intelligent and engaging overview of the roots and current state of Catholic social thought. Grounded in excellent scholarship and written with admirable clarity and balance, this text will be an invaluable resource for Catholics serious about understanding the social implications of their faith for years to come.”  —Charles J. Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia

“This volume not only explores the riches of Catholic social teaching, but clarifies and develops important aspects of that teaching. It is essential reading for anyone interested in Catholic social thought.”  —Kenneth L. Grasso, Texas State University

“Someone who knew nothing of the tradition of Catholic thought about morality and social life would find in The World as It Could Be a lucid and compelling introduction to the subject. But Fr. Williams’ book is far more than that. It is a philosophically sophisticated engagement with that great and challenging tradition by a scholar who recognizes that, for all its virtues, it is and will always be a work in progress.”  —Robert P. George, professor, Princeton University

“Father Thomas Williams manages to make clear the thought of the Social Magisterium even while taking the reader through the challenging complexity of the subject matter. He emphasizes consistency at the level of principles without ignoring the way that the questions and approaches to problems evolve. This book is useful for beginners and scholars.”  —Russell Hittinger, professor, University of Tulsa

“Fr. Thomas Williams is a distinguished teacher of the social doctrine of the Church. His thoughtful and expert reflections on its historical development and on possible approaches to new issues and challenges make The World as it Could Be a valuable resource for all those interested in the wisdom the Church’s social teaching offers society for the twenty-first century.”  —George Cardinal Pell, Archbishop of Sydney

“A leading expert on the Church’s social teachings, Father Williams writes with verve and clarity on the development of doctrine in fields as diverse as the legitimate use of force, global governance, our duties to our neighbors, and the challenge of scientific advances that have run ahead of moral reflection.”  —Mary Ann Glendon, professor, Harvard University
