7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Gelasius on February 7, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Vincent Rougeau has written a must-read book for those who see Christian thought as transformative of a culture that has been -- until the most recent economic unpleasantness -- content to live atmostic, isolated lives devoted to material acquisition. Rourgeau demonstrates how indulging myth of Christian virtue and charity gets in the way of genuine opportunities for love of neighbor in community as it relates to the most difficult and divisive issues we confront. As St. Augustive prescribed about the Bible: "take and read." At a moment of great promise in America, when Catholic voters answered the big question whether they Could Support Barack Obama with an overwhelming "yes, we can!" -- even in the face of some who sought to use faith to close minds and punish -- Rougeau demonstrates how seeing Christ in the service of others brings us to common ground and builds up, rather than tears down, community.
