520    "In Mercy: What Every Catholic Should Know, Fr. Daniel 
       Moloney covers a broad range of topics regarding mercy 
       that are prevalent for our society today. Beginning from 
       an unexpected perspective in the first half of the book, 
       Fr. Moloney approaches mercy from a political point of 
       view, explaining how mercy is in fact truly and intimately
       interwoven with politics and power. Through this lens, he 
       touches upon pertinent topics such as legal punishments, 
       the death penalty, and self-defense. He also assesses the 
       clergy scandals, laying out why they occurred, what went 
       wrong in how they were dealt with, and how the Church can 
       improve moving forward for the greater glory of God. He 
       eloquently explains how mercy is not synonymous with 
       leniency, but is an act of responding to a privation, a 
       lack of something which ought to be there. Sometimes the 
       road to this may have to be tough love for the good of all
       involved. Fr. Moloney invites the reader to wrestle with 
       the supposed contradiction of God saying that he is 
       merciful, yet killing and punishing his creation. Moloney 
       ultimately resolves this apparent contradiction by 
       highlighting God's identity as the loving Father, 
       explaining how, similar to good earthly fathers, sometimes
       the most loving route to take in truly loving your 
       children and bringing them to their ultimate good is 
       through the course of tough love. God is always good and 
       loving, and his justice and mercy go hand-in-hand"--
