Book Reviews

Michael M. Canaris (Loyola University Chicago's Institute of Pastoral Studies), Reading Religion: A Publication of the American Academy of Religion, May 31, 2018.

"At times, the ability to cut through the cacophony of noise on the topic to arrive at factual, grounded, and sane dialogue about migration and resettlement remains elusive. Thankfully, we have Michael Budde’s invaluable recent volume Scattered and Gathered: Catholics in Diaspora as a sort of polar icebreaker (in the maritime sense of the term) to clear an intellectual route so that these channels of sensible exchange can take place in what has become a frighteningly rigid and wintry season of polemics.

...[the volume] explores with depth and dexterity questions in this wide gamut of scholarship from a number of intriguing angles and contexts: African, Asian, Latinx, Levantine, ecclesiological, biblical, sociological, historical, cultural, literary, and devotional, to name but a few."

Book Reviews

Goran Stanic (Catholic University of Leuven), Louvain Studies 41:1 (2018) 97-100.

"...what makes this book unique is the variety of theological-political case studies from various geographical regions and historical periods...most of the contributors provide ample evidence of what happens when 'profane' loyalties become 'sacralized.' Thus, it is not only just another theological exploration, but also, in many ways, a call for action.

....another practical proof that this book challenges the right point at the right time is the fact that there were supposed to be two more contributions in the book, but the authors could not revise their manuscripts due to conflict situations in their respective countries."
