SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 30, 2022 /Christian Newswire/ -- Are there any redeeming qualities at all about Critical Race Theory (CRT)? Does it have intellectual muscle, and can it stand up to thoughtful and scientific criticism? Not at all, writes Edward Feser in his new book, ALL ONE IN CHRIST: A CATHOLIC CRITIQUE OF RACISM AND CRITICAL RACE THEORY (Ignatius Press). In a direct and scathing critique of CRT, Feser concludes that the controversial theory is "utterly incompatible with Catholic social teaching."
Written in a punchy, no-nonsense fashion typical of Feser's style, ALL ONE IN CHRIST clearly and concisely explains the Church's direct and consistent condemnation of racism, showing that the condemnation is not a recent development but deeply rooted in centuries of papal teaching and scholastic theology.
Feser, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy at Pasadena City College in Pasadena, California, and is the author of many books, including Five Proofs of the Existence of God; By Man Shall His Blood Be Shed; The Last Superstition: A Refutation of the New Atheism; Aquinas; and Scholastic Metaphysics.
ALL ONE IN CHRIST also demonstrates that Critical Race Theory, far from being a remedy for racism, is, in fact, a new and insidious form of racism that cannot be reconciled with the social teaching of the Church and the call of Christ. Feser shows there is zero room for CRT in the Catholic Church because it so adamantly is opposed to Church teaching and without an ounce of intellectual muscle.
"This is the best book I've read on the topic. Ed Feser writes in accessible yet nuanced ways to demonstrate the philosophical and theological errors of both racism and Critical Race Theory," said Ryan T. Anderson, Ph.D., president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and author of Tearing Us Apart: How Abortion Harms Everything and Solves Nothing.
