Editorial Reviews


"This volume . . . addresses itself to the Catholic perspective on wealth creation and distribution. This edited volume is really two books. The first is a collection of essays from conference attendees. Many of these are well chosen. When read in sequence, they constitute an insightful theology of wealth. The second is the account that frames the essays-introductions to the volume and the sections, essays by the editors, and concluding reflections." —Journal of Markets & Morality (Fall 2006)

“Utilizing Catholic Social Teaching, this volume expands the perception of wealth beyond the maximization of share price or the accumulation of capital. While addressing the moral impact of Catholic social teaching on wealth creation, this volume is suitable for graduate studies, professors, and professional economists.” —Religious Studies Review, vol. 34, no. 3, September 2008

Format: Paperback
Rediscovering Abundance: Interdisciplinary Essays On Wealth, Income, And Their Distribution In The Catholic Social Tradition, knowledgeably co-edited by Helen Alford (Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Pontifical University of S. Thomas, Rome), Charles M. A. Clark (Professor of Economics, Tobin College of Business and Senior Fellow, Vincentian Center for Church and Society at St. John's University, New York), S. A. Cortright (Professor of Philosophy and of the Integral Curriculum of Liberal Arts at St. Mary's College of California), and Michael J. Naughton (Director of the John A. Ryan Institute for Catholic Social Thought at the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota) is an in-depth collection of many knowledgeable writers concern and understanding of the ideological and practical implications which the Catholic social thought contributes to society. As an informed and informative introduction to the social economics, business thought, and organizational management which so many follow as a result of Catholic thought and mentality's effect as being a significant part of society, Rediscovering Abundance is a remarkable compendium of useful, conceptual, and practical information. Rediscovering Abundance is very strongly recommended to all readers of economic, political, societal, and catholic scriptures for its informational and educational content.
