About the Author:

As Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Carl Anderson is the leader of the world's largest fraternal organization of Catholic laymen. Named by Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II to several Vatican commissions, Anderson is a member of the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pontifical Council for the Laity, and the Pontifical Academy for Life, and is a consultor to the Pontifical Council for Social Communications and the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

Review:

“A bracing call to a new American revolution: a revolution of virtue. Give this book to friends who say there’s nothing to be done to heal a wounded culture.” (GEORGE WEIGEL, distinguished senior fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center)

“Few elements of Catholic social teaching have been more forcefully stated, or more regularly ignored, than our calling to bring Christian teachings to bear on social, political, and economic issues. Anderson seeks to bring that message home.” (MARY ANN GLENDON, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University)

“Anderson artfully weaves theory and practice, giving us a rare specimen indeed: a practical guide for idealists.” (JOHN L. ALLEN JR., senior correspondent, National Catholic Reporter)

“Anderson has written a book brimming with insights into the transforming power of Christian faith. A Civilization of Love is both a call to personal holiness and a handbook for Catholics who are prepared to take seriously Christ’s command to his disciples to be ‘salt and light’ in the world.” (ROBERT P. GEORGE, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University)

By embracing the culture of life and standing with those most marginalized . . . Christians can change the tone and direction of our culture. Anderson demonstrates that we can come together on the centrality of loving and caring for others (San Francisco Examiner)
