What is included with this book?
This new Classroom Edition of the top-selling Living Justice retains the broad coverage of Catholic social teaching in the first edition with expanded use of tables and figures to enhance the pedagogic value of Fr. Massaro's clear, insightful book. Additionally, new coverage is included to focus on the environment and globalization from a Catholic perspective. By drawing on scripture, tradition, world events, and living examples of heroism and holiness, ranging from the simple to the extraordinary, Living Justice develops students' understanding of Catholic social teaching and provides inspiration for a committed life of service.
