About-

Why Good People Do Bad Things sheds new light on the ethical dilemmas of modern life. It shows how people of good will who are generally thoughtful, caring, and reasonably well balanced can unwittingly contribute to the evils present in our social systems.
In exposing these situations, this book also offers the hope that these same "good people" can take a fresh look at the world around them. In doing so, they can then see the potential of our world as well as its defects, and determine to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The 1971 Synod of Bishops made a major contribution to Catholic social teaching when it insisted, 'Action on behalf of justice and participation in the transformation of the world fully appear to us as a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospel.'

In Why Good People Do Bad Things, Gerard Vanderhaar moves this moral claim from the abstract world of synod documents to the lives of 'good people' who are trying to not 'do bad things.' I recommend it highly."
--Most Rev. Walter F. Sullivan, Bishop of Richmond
