The Church and the Usurers

Unprofitable Lending for the Modern Economy

In this marvelously clear and compact study, Professor McCall explains what usury is, how its evils have provoked massive distortions in our society through the system of money, banking and credit, what the Church really teaches on usury, and the enduring relevance of that teaching. This book is a decisive blow against a major facet of the economic liberalism condemned by Pope after Pope. The Church and the Usurers is a landmark work. ‰ۡÌÝÌÒChristopher A. Ferrara

Dr. Brian McCall, a professor of law at the University of Oklahoma's College of Law, a contributor to The Angelus, Catholic Family News, and The Remnant, in addition to other journals, as well as a speaker at our 2011 Conference for Catholic Tradition on the Kingship of Christ, has released this truly important work. The fruit of years of study and work, The Church and the Usurers considers the question of usury and its application to the modern age. The book looks at this subject in light of Sacred Scripture, Aristotelian philosophy, and the constant and decisive teachings of the Church. Those inclined to dismiss the Church's teaching as outdated, or somehow changed will be in for a shock. If you thought the Church's teaching on usury had changed, then you need to read this book.
