  • Reclaiming Catholic Social Teaching: A Defense of the Church's True Teachings on Marriage, Family, and the State
  • Guided by the writings of Pope Leo XIII
  • Insights on the importance of marriage and family and the nature of man’s eternal destiny
  • Beautiful, life-changing words

In this book, Anthony Esolen unapologetically defends the authentic social teachings of the Church as articulated by Pope Leo XIII — widely considered to be the father of Catholic Social Teaching.  Esolen pulls back the curtain on those who falsely claim that Church social teaching implies the existence of a secular and bureaucratic welfare state, arguing instead that any authentic teaching must focus first on building and stabilizing the most fundamental unit of society — the family.  Only then can a virtuous society be built that leads us toward our purpose on earth: sanctification.
