New Book: For Our Common Home

That this book, with some 60 contributors, exists only months after Pope Francis’ encyclical is quite impressive. That the content critically engages Pope Francis, including unique suggestions for moving forward, is astounding. In this book, Cobb and Castuera have brought together both leading voices (McKibben, Shiva, Tucker, Daly) and less familiar ones from around the world to respond to Pope Francis’ papal letter Laudato si’. Representing multiple faith perspectives (Catholic, Quaker Jewish, Islamic, Indigenous, Buddhist, etc.) and a variety of fields (religion, ecology, economics, agriculture, justice, politics, history, philosophy, education, etc.), this truly global 500 page volume is a fantastic resource for people interested in the significance of Pope Francis’ call for “integral ecology” and continuing a dialogue to save the world.
