Catholic Social Teaching: Living and Learning Justice introduces the Church's rich body of social teaching that comes to us from the essential writings of the popes, highlighting the works from Pope Leo XIII onward. While exploring how societies work, an overarching theme of the text is a discussion of the foundational values that ought to govern a just society.
This text also provides the latest applications of the Church's social teaching by drawing on the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, and is organized around the U.S. Bishops' document, Sharing Catholic Social Teaching. The text highlights two important principles--the life and dignity of the human person and respect for life--as foundational to supporting concepts like the common good, the preferential option for the poor, solidarity among all the people, and stewardship of resources.

Michael Francis Pennock (1945-2009) was the author of several bestselling textbooks for Catholic high schools, including, Encountering Jesus in the New Testament, Your Life in Christ, Our Catholic Faith, and three recent texts to support the new US Bishops' curriculum framework. He remains one of the most respected names in catechetical circles.
Pennock taught theology for more than thirty-five years, mostly at his beloved alma mater, St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, Ohio. His students, numbering more than fifteen thousand, continue to pour out their remembrances and support for the man they called "Doc Pennock."
