Item Description...
Overview
First published as Twelve Tough Issues - and Why, this book became an instant bestseller with over 70,000 copies sold. These short reflections written so ordinary people can understand, describe the church's moral teaching on the toughest issues facing modern believers. In this updated and revised edition, the tough issues haven't changes nor has the church's teaching about them. What has changed is the context in which it is offered. Our society has experienced changes of tonality and emphasis, and new questions and new issues, especially concerning the prolonging of life and church membership, have risen. The archbishop wisely states, "Every human endeavor is capable of improvement." Each chapter offers questions for discussion, suggestions for further reading with an indication of where the subjects are treated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, as well as material from the pope, Vatican II, the Holy See and the U.S. bishops conference.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Conversation Starter  May 24, 2006
This little 90 pager is a great book to start many important discussions between an orthodox Catholic and a secularist, "progressive" Catholic, non-Catholic Christian, and a host of other possible people.

This work is genuinely orthdox and in tune with the teachings of the Catholic Church (I would expect no less out of an archbishop, but these days...).

This book, however, does not go into too great of detail in trying to settle these issues. Rather, it provides the background and starting point for a discussion regarding these issues.
 
FOR ALL CATHOLICS  Jan 2, 2003
Have you ever wondered exactly how the church stands on certain issues, like abortion, war, artificial insemination and the like -- and why? This book is GREAT! The Archbishop that wrote it went into wonderful detail and gave references to find more information concerning each subject, including the exact page of the Cathechism where each subject is discussed.

This is also great for a study-group, faith-sharing group or school (students and teachers) because of the simplicity of the language and there are questions after each subject explanation to help invoke conversation.

All Catholics should check this out, and non-Catholic who are interested in how the church stands on very tough issues.
