Book Reviews

Lucas Briola (Saint Vincent College), Journal of Moral Theology, 8:2 (June 2019) 145-46.

"In Laudato Si’, Pope Francis stresses the close link between the cry of the poor and cry of the earth. These essays . . . allow us to hear and learn from these twin cries. The diversity of perspectives, focused in the Global South and predominantly Catholic part of the globe . . . transports readers to places like the Agusan Marsh and villages in the Niger Delta region and makes the victims of Hurricane Yolanda and other suffering communities our neighbors . . . .While featuring established figures in the field like Celia Deane Deane-Drummond, Michael Northcott,and Cardinal Peter Turkson, the volume also introduces readers to a number of insightful and significant voices that might be less familiar . . . . This volume offers a powerful meditation on the twin cries echoing across our common home."

​Kevin Hargaden (Jesuit Centre for Faith & Justice, Dublin), The Other Journal, 30 (September 19, 2019) online.

"This book is indispensable for theologians, especially Catholic moral theologians, who are interested in environmental questions. It is accessible enough to be enjoyed by the interested lay reader. Particular essays would surely serve as appropriate reading material in later undergraduate courses or introductory postgraduate courses. Its lasting strength is in the breadth of topics covered, the diversity of voices featured, and most importantly, this sense that the environment is not a thing out there, apart from us, subject to our objective gaze . . . . this book shows how the church, which Cavanaugh proposes as 'perhaps the only truly international grassroots organization' (8), should be enmeshed fully in all conversations about how to care for this world we have been gifted."

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."
