True Freedom: On Protecting Human Dignity and Religious Liberty

I am happy to share with you my new eBook, TrueFreedom: On Protecting Human Dignity and Religious Liberty, which was released today! (Image Books, June 19, 2012.) The Archdiocese of New York issued the following press release to the media.



Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, today released an original eBook, TrueFreedom: On Protecting Human Dignity and Religious Liberty (Image Books, June 19, 2012.)

His Eminence writes:

“In only the last few years we’ve experienced rampant disregard for religious beliefs in this country with the approval of embryonic stem cell research; legal justification for the torture of    prisoners; the provision of tax dollars to abortion providers; the HHS mandates; and, most recently, a redefinition of marriage by many of our leading political figures. We can see that there is a loss of a sense of truth here, and objective moral norms—rules of conduct that apply always, to everyone, everywhere—and an “eclipse of a sense of God and of man.”

…To this culture of death the Church boldly and joyfully promotes the culture of life.

We recognize that we humans are at our best when we give ourselves away in selfless love and live no longer for ourselves, but for another. This is what Pope John Paul the Great calls the “law of the gift,” echoing the words of Jesus that, “No one has greater love than this, than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

The eBook includes the introduction of A People of Hope (Image Books, Nov. 1, 2011), in which journalist John Allen Jr. interviews Cardinal Dolan on a number of topics.

    I have promoted this on my Christendom Awake

    Could the eBook be made available in
    other formats for example PDF so that
    people who do not have Kindle would
    be able to read it.

    Could you please provide this in alternate formats (other than Kindle)? Many people do not have a Kindle. PDF format would be great.

    It would also help to distribute to others. We need to spread the word and educate people!

    Thank you.
