Massaro provides a necessary companion text to any course that deals with issues of social justice, the role of the Church in the modern world, or the relationship between religion and public policy. It is simultaneously academically rigorous and easily accessible to students. Broad, honest, and practical, it serves a variety of courses and invites much needed dialogue between religion that has become increasingly privatized in the public square. (Brian Scott)
Massaro's revised edition of Living Justice, featuring updated information, expanded topics, and fuller explanations of key themes in Catholic Social Thought, greatly enhances its usefulness as an admirable and excellent college-level textbook. The added list of 'topics for future study' poses a challenge to all seeking to plunge more deeply into this vital realm of Catholic social thought. (Normand J. Paulhus)
