Laudato Si: An Irish Response (Paperback)
Essays on the Pope's Letter on the Environment
In 2015 Pope Francis published Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home, the first papal encyclical devoted exclusively to the subject of the environment. Released to glowing reviews both in the Christian community and beyond, it continues to prompt great debate on the future of our planet and the need to redouble our efforts in protecting the environment from untold devastation.In this timely companion volume, Sean McDonagh has invited a host of eminent theologians, academics and environmentalists, all living and working in Ireland, to offer their own responses to this landmark work. With voices from various backgrounds — anthropological, sociological and theological — Laudato Si’: An Irish Response explores what one contributor dubs the ‘disruptive power’ of Pope Francis’ encyclical and its crucial call for ‘ecological conversion’.
