    1. This is only 18 pages - the rest is an excerpt from A People of Hope-so there's no excuse not to read it. ($1/18 pagesting to think of rate per pages, no? What would you pay for your favorite author? But I digress) As with a lot of things I've read lately, this seems to be common sense(Although I guess we should begin calling it uncommon sense.) It's a good synopsis of Evangelium Vitae and has some rockin' Pope Benedict quotes.


    2. Simple and enduring ideas to guide us through the rough times we live in today. It is a wonderful world we have been entrusted with and to better take advantage of its marvels we need to understand that True Freedom comes with true responsibility. The end result of true Freedom and Responsibility is immediate true joy. Timothy Dolan does an excellent job that appeals to our reason and our heart and does it with intellectual honesty and great courage. A moral beacon for our time.


    3. Cardinal Timothy Dolan is an imposing figure in Catholic Church today. His influence on American Catholicism and American culture in general are undisputed. However, he is increasingly projecting his influence beyond American borders. Dolan's unwavering commitment to "affirmative orthodoxy," his personal charm and charisma, and his media savvy are all qualities that the modern Catholic Church needs in its leaders.This short Kindle single is an insight into Cardinal Dolan's thinking and the issue [...]


    4. The book expounds on the meaning of true freedom for man as an individual, as a community and as a nation. If you ever wonder what keeps practicing Catholics attending mass every Sunday where it would be easier to just lie in bed until high noon then this is a must read. You will also learn about where Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan Archbishop of New York stands on the doctrine of the Catholic Church. As a bonus this book also contains an excerpt from "A People of Hope" that are Conversations with Ca [...]


    5. Timothy Cardinal Dolan's very short work concerns itself with basis of freedom in objective truth. Building off the Blessed John Paul II's The Gospel of Life, Dolan discusses natural law ("Natural law is a concept of objective truth, known by anyone with the power of reason") as the source of moral knowledge and the foundation of civil law. He focuses on John Paul's opposition of the "culture of death" and its concern with "having and doing" with the "culture of life" and its focus on "being." M [...]


    6. Great little introduction to what role the Church feels it ought to play in keeping our culture's view of the value of people on a solid grounding. Here's are two brief samples:"The importance of ecology is no longer disputed. We must listen to the language of nature and we must answer accordingly. Yet I would like to underline a point that seems to me to be neglected, today as in the past: There is also an ecology of man. Man too has a nature that he must respect and that he cannot manipulate a [...]


    7. This is sort of a broadside in this hour in which Catholics are being challenged in our political freedoms. I read this as one of my disciplines during this Fortnight of Freedom. The archbishop's argument is one that has been said before; however, he says it quite succinctly. Namely, that this country's laws originated in Christianity even though the founders did not claim orthodox Christianity, that freedom is not the right to do whatever one wants to do but the right to do the right thing and [...]


    8. I mastered using the highlight function of my Kindle Touch while reading this pithy little explanation of natural law and religious liberty. The star knocked off is because fully half of this little ebook is an excerpt from a John Allen book *about* Dolan, which felt a bit like an advertisement. Perhaps the publisher added it to give context to the essay -- who is the author and why should we listen? -- but I don't think anyone who would buy this is unaware of the Cardinal's identity. Perhaps it [...]


    9. Cardinal Dolan's book is a short, but powerful reminder of the risks that religious liberty is facing, not only from the government, but from apathetic citizens who believe that the only moral code that exists is the one they set for themselves.Anyone concerned with the future of the Catholic Church, or religion in general should give this book a read.


    10. If you've already read John Paul II's Evangelium Vitae, then you probably don't need to read this short one. It basically summarizes the teaching regarding the gospel of life and the culture of death.


    11. Cardinal Dolan's words are so true and much needed. I didn't care too much for the excerpt from John Allen's new book on Dolan. I'm not a big fan of Allen. While it's not surprising that Dolan trusts him, I still can't figure out why Abp. Chaput does. I must be missing something.



    12. Disappointing. Brief and not overly insightful. The brief blurb on Dolan's biorgraphy or current CV was interesting but not thorough.
