This timely reissue celebrates the 20th anniversary of an important, classic work on faith andeconomics from one of the leading Catholic intellectuals of the past century.
As pertinent today as it was when it was first published in 1992, Doing Well and Doing Goodargues that for too long Christianity has had nothing to say to Wall Street or to Main Street.Some churches have blasted the greed of the former or the bourgeois grasping of the latter. Others have insisted on a socialist alternative. But the time has come, Neuhaus says, to stopsuch silliness. Drawing on the writings of Pope John Paul II, Richard Neuhaus has written aclassic, groundbreaking work that unashamedly seeks to bestow a blessing on business. The common good depends on it.
