Its timeliness is best shown in its chapters dealing with the relation of Church and State as addressed by the First Amendment which are applicable to present day events and its discussion of the Cold War particularly if one substitutes Islamic Extremists for the Soviet Union insofar as certain "pragmatists" did not take Soviet "dogma" seriously.
The 1960 publication of We Hold These Truths marked a significant event in the history of modern American thought. Since that time, Sheed & Ward has kept the book in print and has published several studies of John Courtney Murray's life and work. We are proud to present a new edition of this classic text, which features a comprehensive introduction by Peter Lawler that places Murray in the context of Catholic and American history and thought while revealing his relevance today.
The product description above from Amazon's newer (and more pricey) release in paperback does a nice job of describing the product.
What is important about this work is it looks squarely at the question every Catholic must ask & answer: What do do with the Ameircan Proposition? It looks at mans relationships within the civil sphere, contrasting his frienships as a citizen of the City of Man (philia, and the mark of him who looks towards the City of God, caritas.
