How the Church's Social Doctrine Addresses the Issues of Our Time
We live in a world that has become secularized, marked by ideology and partisanship. In such a world, how are we supposed to know what is right and wrong? As Christians, how are we supposed to approach the social issues of our day? With conflicting voices surrounding us, how can we hear and know the voice of Jesus Christ and receive His teachings?
As Christians, we seek to live the way of the Lord Jesus, but that's easier said than done. We want to demonstrate the Lord's love and kindness to all men and women, but we're faced with issues that cause us to discern what that looks like and how it's virtuously expressed. We want to do what is right and good, but trying to determine right and wrong can at times be confusing and unsettling.
The teaching authority of the Church is here to help. Appointed by Jesus Christ, our shepherds discern, interpret, and apply His teachings to our everyday lives.
Sanctify Them in Truth, by Fr. Jeffrey Kirby, is an approachable, easy-to-read guide on eight of our most pressing social issues. The book applies divine wisdom and the guidance of the Church as it dissects oft-debated topics, presenting helpful teaching so that the reader knows how to navigate today's contentious world with conviction and a clear conscience.
