Michael Hornsby-Smith offers an overview of Catholic social thought
particularly in recent decades. While drawing on official teaching
such as papal encyclicals and the pastoral letters of bishops'
conferences, he takes seriously the need for dialogue with secular
thought. The 2006 book is organized in four stages. Part I outlines
the variety of domestic and international injustices and seeks to
offer a social analysis of the causes of these injustices. Part II
offers a theological reflection on the characteristics of the
kingdom of God which Christians are urged to seek. Part III reviews
Catholic social thought in six main areas: human rights, the family
and bioethical issues, economic life, social exclusion, authentic
development, and war and peace. Part IV completes the cycle with a
consideration of appropriate social action responses to the
injustices which the author has identified and analysed.
