Summary

Salt and Light offers a fresh perspective on the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes, showing how these two pillars of Christian moral teaching complement each other. The Ten Commandments are the 'ground floor,' providing the contours of the moral life. The Beatitudes, by contrast, show us how to live as creatures meant to share in the life of God. Beyond merely a list of dos and don'ts, Mark Shea, in his engaging style, introduces the modern reader to a fuller grasp of Catholic moral teaching as part of the process of being transformed by the Holy Spirit and living joyfully in virtue.
An excellent companion volume to Shea's The Work of Mercy, this book is a rich exploration of the Church's moral and social teaching.

Critic reviews

"The Word of God startled the world into whatever goodness we find here. The Commandments and Beatitudes arrived on earth as something new and different; Mark Shea shows us they're always new and different. This book startles me - may it startle many others to greater goodness." (Mike Aquilina, author of Roots of the Faith and Yours Is the Church)

insightful

If you can get past Shea's tone, which can seem a bit condescending, this book id's full of insight and wisdom. He challenges complacency and calls out wrong attitudes
