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.
Great Catholic insight into the beatitudes and the 10 commandments. Good explanation of Catholic teaching on these very important teaching of the church
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
