Archbishop Peter A Comensoli invites you to the launch of Greg Craven’s latest book, in which he argues that Catholic social teaching remains an important resource for addressing the challenges of Australian politics. The launch features former prime ministers Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott.

In Shadow of the Cross, Craven's critique of liberalism, social democracy, and conservatism from the perspective of Catholic social teaching offers a vision for how Australian political debate might be done better. Featured in the book are former prime ministers Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott, as well as Frank Brennan, Philip Booth and Sandie Cornish, each offering their own thoughts on the future of politics and policy, and the utility of Catholic social teaching as a resource for policymaking in their responses to Craven’s analysis.
