“This is the first commentary on Pope Francis’s encyclical on fraternity and social friendship, but it is hard to imagine it ever being surpassed. Such is the breadth and depth of this extraordinary work that stands as a genuinely worthy companion to an encyclical that powerfully calls us to recognize ourselves as children of the same God.”
—James F. Keenan, SJ, professor of theology, Boston College
“This book is a powerful commentary on the encyclical Fratelli Tutti, where Pope Francis convokes Christians to fraternity, departing from a particular local level in order to build a global ethics. Through the various perspectives rises and shines the central proposal of the document: to convert from current logic of competition and interest to the logic of fraternity and love.”
—Maria Clara Bingemer, professor of theology, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro
