“Lay people deserve to be as educated as possible in Catholic teaching. It is to the Church’s advantage that they be educated in this area, in light of the laity’s religious and civic responsibilities… As it can be difficult to keep up to date with developments in these areas, as well as to stay informed about church teaching, this book can help Catholics navigate these pressing issues.” – Dr. Moira McQueen
