Lazarus at the Table
Catholics and Social Justice
By (author) Bernard F. Evans
Lazarus at the Table by Bernard F. Evans
Book Description"Lazarus at the Table" is the fruit of more than two decades of instructing students in the social teachings of the Catholic Church. For most of these years, Bernard Evans has taught graduate students. Lately, he also teaches educated lay Catholics engaged in parish ministry and enrolled in diocesan ministry formation programs. This book is written specifically for the latter group. Evans agrees with the bishops of the United States who insist that any Catholic education that does not include Catholic social teaching is not fully Catholic. And so he writes clearly, concisely, and convincingly about how Catholic social teaching addresses such contemporary issues as human dignity, abortion, assisted suicide and euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, the death penalty, war, family, marriage, poverty, superfluous income, just wages, unions, peace, solidarity, and many more. Excerpts from the church's official teachings in papal documents abound throughout the book. "Laity looking for a text that explains the essence of Catholic and social teaching will find this book an excellent resource. Dr. Evans' well written, yet easy to read style explains in laymen's language the core themes and moral perspectives of our Catholic social teaching often referred to as the Catholic Church's 'best kept secret.' Building on the foundational moral teaching that all human life is sacred and has dignity, Dr. Evans weaves the core themes together in such a way that the reader can grasp the wholeness of the Catholic social teaching. Referencing the multiple social documents enables the reader to appreciate the Church's long history of writings addressing constantly evolving social issues." - Bernadette Dunn.
