Justice applies fundamental principles to urgent issues and problems facing us today, from immigration to attitudes toward the elderly, from the plight of homeless veterans to the fallout of American globalization. It reveals the sacramental heart of justice and shows how to communicate its necessity. It is a book of substance that is impossible to put down.
