Recently, I did a podcast with Claude Blanc, the Publisher of New City Press, about my new book The Church’s Best-Kept Secret: A Primer on Catholic Social Teaching. You can listen to it here!:
You can also, if you prefer, hear it on
In addition, The Church’s Best-Kept Secret just got reviewed in US Catholic!
And a mighty nice review it got! Thanks Don Clemmer!
“Shea rallies his apologetic acumen to build the sturdiest possible case for integrating all components of the church’s social teaching in catechesis. He methodically draws on the pillars of Catholic social teaching—dignity of the human person, common good, subsidiarity, and solidarity—building on them in reasoned arguments peppered with papal pronouncements, scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and a flurry of other voices, including G. K. Chesterton and C. S. Lewis.”
“…offers a resource that is tremendously helpful to parishes, study groups, and any church entity seeking to foster a well-rounded sense of moral responsibility among its people.”
“…as Mark Shea focuses his catechetical energies on lifting up a facet of the church’s teaching that doesn’t get enough attention, his voice is flourishing as well.”
You can order the book right here, direct from me, signed and everything (along with my other work)!
