Description: In this lively investigation of the Catholic Church and its social mission in the developing world, Calderisi weighs the Church's various missteps and poor decisions against its positive contributions to education, health, and social justice, looking back as far as the Spanish Conquest in Latin America and the arrival of missionaries in Africa and Asia. He also looks forward, highlighting difficult issues that threaten to disrupt the Church's future social role. The author's answer to the question he poses will fascinate Catholic and non-Catholic readers alike, providing a wealth of insights into international affairs, development economics, humanitarian concerns, history, and theology.
