Why care about the environment?
It's a question people are asking and answering with greater frequency-and urgency-than ever before. And although many Americans remain ambivalent about our responsibility toward the earth, Pope Francis is clear: we must care about the environment, because all creation is connected.
All Creation Is Connected: Voices in Response to Pope Francis's Encyclical on Ecology is a collection of essays by leading Catholic thinkers that both supplements and unpacks the encyclical, Laudato si': On Care for Our Common Home. Exploring a range of topics-from the background and reception of the encyclical to the key concepts that frame and animate it-All Creation Is Connected offers compelling reflections on the question "why care about the environment?" that will catalyze conversation and spur necessary action for years to come.
