This is the time for a new politics, a new economics. Not As the World Gives, drawing on the Church's two millennia of reflection on the Gospel, especially in the encyclicals from Rerum Novarum to Centesimus Annus, shows us the nature of society by showing us ourselves. We are beings created to give and receive -- called to "walk towards the true freedom that Christ taught us in the Beatitudes," as Pope Francis expressed it. 
There is no peace without justice, but neither can there be justice without love. Far from being an impractical dream, Catholic social doctrine can transform the way we work, the way we govern, and the way we treat the natural world. What emerges from this sequel to the author's The Radiance of Being is a vision of integration and wholeness, a society both divine and human, and a "humanism open to the absolute."

From the Back Cover:

"In this marvelous and wide-ranging work, Stratford Caldecott offers us a rich and provocative view of Catholic teaching about social life for the 21st century--the fruit of a lifetime of sincere and faithful study of theology, philosophy, politics, and economics." -- ANDREW ABELA, Dean, School of Business & Economics, The Catholic University of America

"Stratford Caldecott's magisterial new work shows how both the cosmos and the polis emanate from the supernatural Good in God. His account of Catholic social thought charts a new path for politics, the economy, and human culture." -- ADRIAN PABST, author of Metaphysics: The Creation of Hierarchy

"In distinctive voice, Stratford Caldecott's Not As the World Gives completes the analysis he began in The Radiance of Being. Caldecott's particular genius is to be able to take up large subjects and articulate the essential outline of what needs saying. Here we see the radiance of Being as it shines upon the social and cultural worlds." -- GLENN W. OLSEN, author of The Turn to Transcendence

"Stratford Caldecott has a great gift for writing profound things clearly and intelligibly. There are few authors today who discuss social and cultural matters in their proper and comprehensive ecclesiological and theological context as does he here." -- DAVID L. SCHINDLERauthor of Ordering Love and Editor of Communio: International Catholic Review

"As Stratford Caldecott forcefully reminds us in this cogent and inspiring book, the social doctrine of the Church needs to be totally integrated into our spiritual and moral lives, a process he calls 'creative justice.'" -- RUSSELL SPARKESauthor of Cardinal Manning and the Birth of Catholic Social Teaching.
