The publication of Laudato Sí—a papal encyclical on a defining issue of our times-was a moment of great importance for Catholics and for the world. Now Fr. Joshtrom Kureethadam, one of the church's top experts on the document, provides a thoughtful, passionate, and highly accessible commentary on its key ideas and themes. Faithfully attentive to the outline of the six chapters of the encyclical, Fr. Joshtrom has also insightfully arranged the book according to the See-Judge-Act methodology that is increasingly used in spirituality, moral theology, and the social sciences.

If Pope Francis is right when he insists that the solution to our environmental problems cannot be found only in technocratic approaches by governments and institutions, but by a wide and thoughtful embrace by all of us of our common responsibility, then Fr. Joshtrom's book is precisely what we need at this time.

Joshtrom Isaac Kureethadam, a Catholic priest, serves on the staff of the Vatican's recently created Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development. Prior to this work, he was professor of philosophy of science at Rome's Pontifical Salesian University. His previous book is Creation in Crisis: Science, Ethics, Theology.

Fr. Kureethadan has provided an invaluable guide to the spiritual and theological vision of Laudato Si'. He also shows how ordinary Catholics can turn this vision into a personal action plan for assuming ecological responsibility. A clearly written and deeply challenging volume.
John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, Professor Emeritus of Social Ethics, Catholic Theological Union
