Here's another: Citizens of the Heavenly City

(A Catechism Of Catholic Social Teaching) by Dr. Arthur Hippler

This book was written by Dr. Hippler at the request of then Bishop of LaCrosse, Raymond Burke, to help fill the lack of authentic Church teaching in most Catholic high school textbooks. Dr. Hippler serves as the Director of the Office of Justice and Peace for the Diocese of La Crosse. He received his Ph. D. in philosophy from Boston College in 1993.

Citizens of the Heavenly City is a valuable resource for Catholic students as well as other Catholics who need a clear explanation of just what the Church’s social teaching consists of and in what sense it obliges Catholics.

In his foreword, Archbishop of St. Louis, Raymond Burke declares that this book “is directed to helping our youth to understand and to observe the pastoral priority of witnessing to Christ in their ordinary Christian living. It is a text which will also be fruitfully studied by adults who desire to deepen their own understanding of what it means to live in Christ.”


Arthur Hippler serves as the Director of the Office of Justice and Peace for the Diocese of La Cross a position he has held since January 2000. [snip] Borromeo Books, the publisher, is based in St Paul.
