The blog reached its third birthday at the end of March.  It’s been a terrific ride so far – and we’re happy to keep fostering charitable and in-depth discussion of the Catholic moral theology!  We’ll be introducing a couple new aspects to the blog in coming weeks as part of our ongoing efforts to make the conversations better.


Today, though, we’re celebrating with a book giveaway. Christian Political Witness, edited by George Kalantzis and Greg Lee, and published by Intervarsity Press Academic, is an important collection of essays from a variety of thinkers, some Catholic, some not, all exploring questions about church and state relations and political engagements.

As the book’s website notes:

“My kingdom is not of this world.” Followers of Jesus have been struggling to understand these words ever since he first uttered them—often in sharply contradictory ways. Today the inescapably political nature of Christian witness is widely recognized. But what is the shape of this witness? What should Christian political engagement look like today?

Here at cmtdotcom, we are no strangers to addressing these questions – and a book like this one offers a continuation of some good conversation about political theology.
