That They Be One
The Social Teaching of the Papal Encyclicals 1740-1989
Michael J. Schuck

A comprehensive historical study of the complete content and overall coherence of two and a half centuries of papal instructions that have variously aroused worldwide interest, scorn, fury, reaction, and consent. It provides the kind of analysis that concerned Roman Catholics, public officials, social ethicists, theologians, and students need. It is a textually inclusive and topically broad-gauged review of Catholic social teaching in its historical development, with a forthright assessment of its regrettable contradictions as well as of its valuable consistencies.


Reviews
"Schuck's volume will be indispensable for those interested in the theological grounding and coherence of Catholic social teaching."—America
