Reflections of E. R. Norman's Reith Lectures, Christianity and the World Order, this chapter is a further reflection on the way human action is significant in the building up of the heavenly kingdom. It identifies a number of home truths in Norman's appraisal of Christian church people's attitudes as unspiritual, politicized, and detached from truths of Christian faith; and a number of half-truths in his grasp of Christian teaching, especially about human nature, human goods and natural law, Catholic social teaching, divine commandments, and faith and works in this world and in eternity.

Keywords:   E. R. Norman, heavenly kingdom, natural law, divine commandments, faith and works, Catholic social teaching
