Lemchukwu argues that the emphasis on the spiritual aspects of the Catholic Church has led church leaders to neglect the church's social welfare mission in a part of Nigeria that is witnessing degrading social realities and other unjust conditions militating against human dignity and rights. He suggests how the church can help Igbo-Nigerian society orient towards the path of love, justice, and peace, which naturally lead to human and social development. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
