    1. This is a fabulous book, and one that every Catholic should read! I was very impressed by the practical and straight-forward application of the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church to the realities of our every day life. This book takes what is at the heart of our Faith and puts it to work in the world. We are all called. It is our duty to guard, nurture, build, and share the love of Christ with the whole world. This book is a reminder of this very call. The power of this book is in it's profo [...]

    2. It is amazing, to me, how farwe draw away from the common and courteous and the proper way to treat one another in this world. Are we being cheated by big business? Are we getting things over on big business and getting out "fair" share. Do we learn from the relationship between the commone people, the Lords of Industry, the Lord of us all and most importantly, do we learn that the respectfuy treatment of one another in the past and the decisiion to get awar from the doctrine of fairness in the [...]

    3. A decent easy introduction to Catholic social teaching. The intended audience is lay Catholics, but even as a Protestant I found much worth pondering. The treatment of Nietzsche and especially the straight line drawn from him to fascism is too dismissive, but most treatments of Nietzsche's work that aren't explicitly philosophical typically make this mistake. Since most of the work is built around explicating the writings of JPII and Benedict XVI, it might be worthwhile for readers more serious [...]

    4. This book has good content, but its organization is horrible. This book is really a collection of essays put together in chapter form. The problem is that the essays are not seperated, but all flow together without natural breaks. The chapters seem forced together; which results in confusion for the reader as thoughts meld into new thoughts that are not connected to the original. Breaking this book into essays would have solved this problem and made it much more enjoyable.

    5. What is it all about, LOVE! This book is a wonderful book to see how God can be at the root of everything. Although it primarily speaks about Catholic social teaching (which is so great for every Catholic to know) it really speaks about concepts that everyone can relate to. That the family is the root of love, respect for live, mission work in our everyday lives, and more. A quick wonderful read!!!

    6. The Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus writes about following the teachings of Jesus and loving one's fellow man. He uses discussions going back to the teachings of Paul through Pope Francis and looks at anti-Christian views of people like Freud and others. Each chapter are several meditation questions.

    7. Written by The Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, an organization of Catholic laymen. The author challenges Christians to take an active role in their faith to work toward creating a civilization of love.
