Evangelicals have neglected the tradition of Catholic social teaching to their loss. There is much to learn from the political aspects of that teaching; in particular the concepts of political authority, democracy, constitutionalism, the common good, subsidiarity and political economy found in post-Vatical II papal encyclicals. Catholic political thought contains profoundly valuable resources which evangelicals should critically appropriate as they make their own contribution to the development of a global, ecunemical vision of politics and society for the contemporary world.
