Preaching Justice: Dominican Contributions to Social Ethics in the Twentieth Century

 Edited by: Francesco Compagnoni OP and Helen Alford OP

Preface by: Gustavo Gutierrez OP

'This is a wonderful testimony to the abiding vitality of the Dominican tradition in wrestling with issues of justice in the modern world.' -Fr. Timothy Radcliffe OP, former Master of the Dominicans and internationally acclaimed author.

'This text is profoundly practical, providing insights into many vital contemporary topics. Of particular interest to us is the discussion of two American Dominicans - Benedict Ashley and Kevin O'Rourke. It would be impossible to exaggerate their contribution to contemporary Catholic medical ethics. We owe them, and the Dominicans, a great deal of gratitude.' Sr Carol DC and Sr Patricia Talone RSM, President/ CEO and Vice President, Mission Services, The Catholic Health Association of the USA

'As a Jesuit, I cannot but be amazed by the monumental scope of this project. Not only does this text document the contributions of Dominicans to Social Ethics in the twentieth century; more importantly, it traces with clarity and creativity the evolution of Catholic Social Thought in varied concrete contexts across the globe: a fitting tribute to the enduring legacy and relevance of the Dominican charism in contemporary Church and society.' Fr Agbonkhianmeghe E. Orobator SJ, Hekima College, Kenya
