Seek First the Kingdom: Challenging the Culture by Living Our Faith
"A rallying cry for Catholic laity to live out the faith and challenge the culture from one of the keenest thinkers in the Christian world. Christians of all denominations need this." -- Chuck Colson, Founder, Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview
"Read this book if you are in need of hope...hope that God will give you what you need to be a faithful witness, and hope that this witness will bear fruit." -- Helen Alvare, Associate Professor of Law, George Mason University School of Law
"This important and useful book brings together with new insight the biblical theology of God's kingdom and our experience today -- in a society ever more blind to God's purposes and our destiny." -- Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago
"Cardinal Wuerl offers sage advice leavened by his decades of pastoral leadership and his acute understanding of current events." -- Gerard V. Bradley, Professor of Law, University of Notre Dame
"A forceful rebuttal that a Christian can keep his faith in a compartment." -- Mary Ann Glendon, President, Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences
"As crises of our day grow more acute, there is more need than ever for informed, committed Catholics to carry the message and values of the faith into society." -- Russell Shaw, Author, Personal Vocation: God Calls Everyone by Name
In this insightful and highly relevant book, Cardinal Donald Wuerl makes the case that Catholics do not have the option of absenting themselves from the world, taking refuge in a completely private spirituality. As citizens of two worlds, it is precisely within the context of our faith that we can play a decisive role in transforming American society while furthering the goals of the kingdom of God.
