Saints and Social Justice is an inspiring book.

Brandon Vogt, who is donating — tithing sounds more like it — 100% of his royalties from this book to Catholic Charities, has put the faces and stories of several saints on the universal call to social justice that comes to us from Our Lord. By doing this, he shows us how the Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes and the parable of the Good Samaritan have been acted out in the 2,000 year history of our faith.

Reading this book made me want to be a better person and a better Christian.

This is going to be a short review, because I don’t need to say a lot.

Saints and Social Justice, A Guide to Changing the World is well-researched, well-written, inspiring and enjoyable to read.

I recommend it.

    I’ve seen a few reviews now. Looks like a good book. The term “social justice” does make me pause, but from what I understand the book does not have a political agenda.

      I hate to see us lose good words and phrases this way. Social justice is a beautiful phrase. I hope it doesn’t get politicized the point that people won’t use it because of the political signals it sends.

    I know. I’m just contrary. :-)
