Book Summary:

In this uplifting and practical book, written in collaboration with his biographer, Austen Ivereigh, the preeminent spiritual leader explains why we must—and how we can—make the world safer, fairer, and healthier for all people now. In the COVID crisis, the beloved shepherd of over one billion Catholics saw the cruelty and inequity of our society exposed more vividly than ever before. He also saw, in the resilience, generosity, and creativity of so many people, the means to rescue our society, our economy, and our planet. In direct, powerful prose, Pope Francis urges us not to let the pain be in vain. He begins Let Us Dream by exploring what this crisis can teach us about how to handle upheaval of any kind in our own lives and the world at large. With unprecedented candor, he reveals how three crises in his own life changed him dramatically for the better. By its very nature, he shows, crisis presents us with a choice: we make a grievous error if we try to return to some pre-crisis state. But if we have the courage to change, we can emerge from the crisis better than before. Francis then offers a brilliant, scathing critique of the systems and ideologies that conspired to produce the current crisis, from a global economy obsessed with profit and heedless of the people and environment it harms, to politicians who foment their people’s fear and use it to increase their own power at their people’s expense. He reminds us that Christians’ first duty is to serve others, especially the poor and the marginalized, just as Jesus did. Finally, the Pope offers an inspiring and actionable blueprint for building a better world for all humanity by putting the poor and the planet at the heart of new thinking. For this plan, he draws not only on sacred sources, but on the latest findings from renowned scientists, economists, activists, and other thinkers. Yet rather than simply offer prescriptions, he shows how ordinary people acting together despite their differences can discover unforeseen possibilities. Along the way, he offers dozens of wise and surprising observations on the value of unconventional thinking, on why we must dramatically increase women’s leadership in the Church and throughout society, on what he learned while scouring the streets of Buenos Aires with garbage-pickers, and much more. Let Us Dream is an epiphany, a call to arms, and a pleasure to read. It is Pope Francis at his most personal, profound and passionate. With this book and with open hearts, we can change the world.

Book Summary:

THE STORY BEHIND THE SCREENPLAY OF THE TWO POPES, THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING ANTHONY HOPKINS AND JONATHAN PRYCE From the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter of The Theory of Everything and Darkest Hour comes the fascinating and revealing tale of an unprecedented transfer of power, and of two very different men - who both happen to live in the Vatican. In February 2013, the arch-conservative Pope Benedict XVI made a startling announcement: he would resign, making him the first pope to willingly vacate his office in over 700 years. Reeling from the news, the College of Cardinals rushed to Rome to congregate in the Sistine Chapel to pick his successor. Their unlikely choice? Francis, the first non-European pope in 1,200 years, a one time tango club bouncer, a passionate soccer fan, a man with the common touch. Why did Benedict walk away at the height of power, knowing his successor might be someone whose views might undo his legacy? How did Francis - who used to ride the bus to work back in his native Buenos Aires - adjust to life as leader to a billion followers? If, as the Church teaches, the pope is infallible, how can two living popes who disagree on almost everything both be right? Having immersed himself in these men's lives to write the screenplay for The Two Popes, Anthony McCarten masterfully weaves their stories into one gripping narrative. From Benedict and Francis's formative experiences in war-torn Germany and Argentina to the sexual abuse scandal that continues to rock the Church to its foundations, to the intrigue and the occasional comedy of life in the Vatican, The Pope glitters with the darker and the lighter details of one of the world's most opaque but significant institutions.

Book Summary:

"A magnificent book, bursting with profound spiritual insights, from a man who has quickly become one of the greatest spiritual teachers of our time." --James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage In the year since he was elected, Pope Francis’s simple message of mercy, service, and renewal has spread to every corner of the world. Through his gentle demeanor, selfless actions, and welcoming call for service to others, Pope Francis has captured the attention of a world longing for an authentic message of hope—we want to hear what he has to say. Collected from Pope Francis’s speeches, homilies, and papers presented during the first year of his papacy, The Church of Mercy is the first Vatican-authorized book detailing his vision for the Catholic Church. From how to be citizens of the world to answering God’s call for evangelization, Pope Francis's deep wisdom reminds us that the Church must move beyond its own walls and joyfully bring God's mercy wherever suffering, division, or injustice exists. Named TIME Magazine’s 2013 “Person of the Year,” Pope Francis is helping the Church continue toward an authentic Christianity that is faithful to the Gospel and resonant with the world’s greatest needs. The Church of Mercy encourages each of us to ignite the flame within to help share the light of Christ and revitalize the Church.

Book Summary:

Pope Francis celebrates women in the Church and the world, seen through the lens of Mary, the mother of Jesus, in this enlightening new work. “Mary was not omnipotent, she was a normal woman: full of grace, but normal. The power is that grace of the Holy Spirit. Mary is full of the Holy Spirit, who accompanies her for her entire life.”—Pope Francis In Ave Maria, Pope Francis explores and unpacks line by line the meaning of the Ave Maria prayer, while celebrating women and all they do as leaders, friends, sisters, and mothers. Teaming up again with theologian Marco Pozza, Francis illuminates Mary’s simple and complex nature and how her example challenges all of us to lead lives of faith, hope, and perseverance. In the end, she is an icon not just for the religious but for all who look to grow more deeply in their purpose in life.

Book Summary:

Pope Francis has often expressed his concern for the urgent pastoral needs of families in today's society. Underscoring that deep love and concern for the family, the Pope has spent many months speaking on this subject in his weekly Wednesday audience talks. This book is a collection of all of those talks about the family from Dec. 17, 2014 to Sept. 16, 2015. The Pope covers a wide variety of important subjects directly related to family life, speaking in his personal style that offers wisdom and practical insights for the modern family. His words are for families in general, and also directed to the important roles of all those specific persons who make up family life - husbands, wives, parents, children and grandparents. He emphasizes the deep crisis that the family and marriage are undergoing in the Western world, and says that the family is "a new mission field for the Church." He challenges families today to be witnesses to the world of love, fidelity, and service. Some of the specific topics his talks address include: the example of the Holy Family of Nazareth; transmitting the faith; educating the children; family prayer; complementarity of male and female; celebration in family life; mercy and forgiveness; dealing with illness and death; learning the value of work; poverty and economic struggles; evangelizing the culture, and much more. Throughout his addresses, the Holy Father especially emphasizes the primary role of God and faith in family life, and the crucial importance of regular family prayer to draw on God's grace for strength, love, joy and unity within the home. "The true joy which we experience in the family is not superficial; it does not come from material objects, from the fact that everything seems to be going well. . . . True joy comes from a profound harmony between persons, something which we all feel in our hearts." - Pope Francis

Book Summary:

Ruth Burrows is the author of numerous best-selling books, including Essence of Prayer. In this book, she distills the wisdom and experience gained from her life as a Carmelite nun into a vigorous, compelling presentation of what it means to be a Christian. Ruth Burrows believes that many people, even regular churchgoers, miss the true meaning and joy of Christianity. God longs for us to know him as our Saviour, so that he can bring us to share in his own Trinitarian life and love. Burrows traces how God reveals himself to us through our personal lives, particularly our experiences of weakness and failure; through history and the natural world; through the scriptures; and above all, through his beloved Son Jesus. Encountering the living God revealed in Jesus Christ challenges us to face our own truth, and sets us free to receive the boundless love, the joy, fulfilment, and holiness, for which we were made.

Cupich, Pope Francis’s first major appointment in the United States, Walking with Jesus offers the Church a much-needed way forward, past its inner and outer walls, as it fearlessly follows Christ toward the future.

Book Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In his first book published as Pope, and in conjunction with the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis here invites all humanity to an intimate and personal dialogue on the subject closest to his heart—mercy—which has long been the cornerstone of his faith and is now the central teaching of his papacy. In this conversation with Vatican reporter Andrea Tornielli, Francis explains—through memories from his youth and moving anecdotes from his experiences as a pastor—why “mercy is the first attribute of God.” God “does not want anyone to be lost. His mercy is infinitely greater than our sins,” he writes. As well, the Church cannot close the door on anyone, Francis asserts—on the contrary, its duty is to go out into the world to find its way into the consciousness of people so that they can assume responsibility for, and move away from, the bad things they have done. The first Jesuit and the first South American to be elected Bishop of Rome, Pope Francis has traveled around the world spreading God’s message of mercy to the largest crowds in papal history. Clear and profound, The Name of God Is Mercy resonates with this desire to reach all those who are looking for meaning in life, a road to peace and reconciliation, and the healing of physical and spiritual wounds. It is being published in more than eighty countries around the world. “The name of God is mercy. There are no situations we cannot get out of, we are not condemned to sink into quicksand.”—Pope Francis Praise for The Name of God Is Mercy “Francis speaks succinctly—and with refreshing forthrightness. . . . He emphasizes moral sincerity over dogma, an understanding of the complexities of the world and individual experience over rigid doctrine. . . . The pope has an easy conversational style that moves effortlessly between folksy sayings and erudite allusions, between common-sense logic and impassioned philosophical insights.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times “What makes his book most moving is the way in which this man, without disrespecting his own privacy or offering false bromides of modesty, opens the sacred space of his conscience to explain how he came to center his ministry, and now his papacy, around mercy.”—James Carroll, The New Yorker “As he has done throughout his papacy, Pope Francis shows in this book a compelling way to present God’s love anew to a skeptical world without denying the ancient teachings of faith. But now he is challenging the entire Church to trek a new way forward.”—Time “Francis enjoys sharing personal stories of God’s grace and mercy in the lives of parishioners from his native Argentina, people he has known and who have recognized themselves as sinners.”—The Washington Post “Powerful . . . Francis’s book signals a plea for a change of attitude on the part of the faithful and their pastors. . . . Bishops and priests will talk and quarrel over the text for months, even years to come. And that, perhaps, is what Francis intends.”—Financial Times “Deepens his calls for a more merciful Catholic Church . . . The question-and-answer book is told in simple, breezy language, with the pope referring to experiences and people in his own life.”—Newsday “Francis has offered his most detailed outline yet for the role of the Catholic church in the modern era.”—National Catholic Reporter Translated by Oonagh Stransky

Book Summary:

More than an insightful psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung was the twentieth century's greatest articulator of the primacy of mind in nature, a view whose origins vanish behind the mists of time. Underlying Jung's extraordinary body of work, and providing a foundation for it, there is a broad and sophisticated system of metaphysical thought. This system, however, is only implied in Jung's writings, so as to shield his scientific persona from accusations of philosophical speculation. The present book scrutinizes Jung’s work to distil and reveal that extraordinary, hidden metaphysical treasure: for Jung, mind and world are one and the same entity; reality is fundamentally experiential, not material; the psyche builds and maintains its body, not the other way around; and the ultimate meaning of our sacrificial lives is to serve God by providing a reflecting mirror to God’s own instinctive mentation. Embodied in this compact volume is a journey of discovery through Jungian thoughtscapes never before revealed with the depth, force and scholarly rigor you are about to encounter.

Book Summary:

World-renowned economist Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, explains that we have an opportunity to shape the fourth industrial revolu­tion, which will fundamentally alter how we live and work. Schwab argues that this revolution is different in scale, scope and complexity from any that have come before. Characterized by a range of new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, the developments are affecting all disciplines, economies, industries and governments, and even challenging ideas about what it means to be human. Artificial intelligence is already all around us, from supercomputers, drones and virtual assistants to 3D printing, DNA sequencing, smart thermostats, wear­able sensors and microchips smaller than a grain of sand. But this is just the beginning: nanomaterials 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than a strand of hair and the first transplant of a 3D printed liver are already in development. Imagine “smart factories” in which global systems of manu­facturing are coordinated virtually, or implantable mobile phones made of biosynthetic materials. The fourth industrial revolution, says Schwab, is more significant, and its ramifications more profound, than in any prior period of human history. He outlines the key technologies driving this revolution and discusses the major impacts expected on government, business, civil society and individu­als. Schwab also offers bold ideas on how to harness these changes and shape a better future—one in which technology empowers people rather than replaces them; progress serves society rather than disrupts it; and in which innovators respect moral and ethical boundaries rather than cross them. We all have the opportunity to contribute to developing new frame­works that advance progress.

Book Summary:

How can Christianity touch the imagination of our contemporaries when ever fewer people in the West identify as religious? Timothy Radcliffe argues we must show how everything we believe is an invitation to live fully. God says: 'I put before you life and death: choose life'. Anyone who understands the beauty and messiness of human life – novelists, poets, filmmakers and so on – can be our allies, whether they believe or not. The challenge is not today's secularism but its banality. We accompany the disciples as they struggle to understand this strange man who heals, casts out demons and offers endless forgiveness. In the face of death, he teaches them what it means to be alive in God. Then he embraces all that afflicts and crushes humanity. Finally, Radcliffe explores what it means for us to be alive spiritually, physically, sacramentally, justly and prayerfully. The result is a compelling new understanding of the words of Jesus: 'I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.'

Book Summary:

“[A] landmark book . . . Solnit illustrates how the uprisings that begin on the streets can upend the status quo and topple authoritarian regimes” (Vice). A book as powerful and influential as Rebecca Solnit’s Men Explain Things to Me, her Hope in the Dark was written to counter the despair of activists at a moment when they were focused on their losses and had turned their back to the victories behind them—and the unimaginable changes soon to come. In it, she makes a radical case for hope as a commitment to act in a world whose future remains uncertain and unknowable. Drawing on her decades of activism and a wide reading of environmental, cultural, and political history, Solnit argues that radicals have a long, neglected history of transformative victories, that the positive consequences of our acts are not always immediately seen, directly knowable, or even measurable, and that pessimism and despair rest on an unwarranted confidence about what is going to happen next. Now, with a moving new introduction explaining how the book came about and a new afterword that helps teach us how to hope and act in our unnerving world, she brings a new illumination to the darkness of our times in an unforgettable new edition of this classic book. “One of the best books of the 21st century.” —The Guardian “No writer has better understood the mix of fear and possibility, peril and exuberance that’s marked this new millennium.” —Bill McKibben, New York Times–bestselling author of Falter “An elegant reminder that activist victories are easily forgotten, and that they often come in extremely unexpected, roundabout ways.” —The New Yorker

Book Summary:

Pope Paul VI was one of the most perceptive and visionary popes in the modern era, foreseeing not just the rise of secularism, but the negative effect it would have on the family and the human soul. Yet despite the tremendous spiritual and theological value of Pope Paul VI’s writings, much has been forgotten, lost in the decades of controversy and dissent — until now. In these pages, Matthew Bunson resurrects the time-tested teachings of Pope Paul VI, showing how his prophetic reflections on modernity are needed in our own age more than ever. Guided by the deep spirituality and approachable theology of Paul VI, you’ll come to understand the root causes of secularism, the risks of globalization, the damage caused by the isolation of young people in the modern world, and why human dignity must be safeguarded in the face of scientific advances. Widely recognized as the first modern pope, Pope Paul VI led the Catholic Church in the wake of the controversies surrounding how to implement and interpret the Second Vatican Council. On one side he battled a reluctant Vatican bureaucracy resistant to authentic reform, while on the other side he guided the faithful in a time of rampant confusion. Bunson also details the graceful and holy way in which Pope Paul VI handled the many dissenting voices raised against the Church’s teachings on contraception, and how he fought for the dignity of the human person as he faced criticism from both the left and the right. Read this book, and you’ll enter into the mind of one of the Church’s newest saints, better prepared not just to defend the teachings of the Church, but to do so in an approachable and holy way.

教宗方濟各對身處疫情中的全球民眾 最雄辯又溫暖的邀請 我們是世界的共同創造者 這究竟是COVID-19引起的亂象, 還是COVID-19終於讓我們看見亂象? 這是否正是病毒的提問: 「我們面對的經濟、社會與生態挑戰, 其實都只是同一場危機的不同面向?」 這一關終究會過。 你可能出落得比以前更好,也可能更差。 但就是回不到危機前的模樣了。 =============== 別再企盼生活可以回歸過去的「常態」, 別錯過事實終於「由濁而清」的一瞬間。 危機中,我們需要的是一個改變的機會, 創造空間來容納我們所需要的嶄新事物。 =============== 通過生命的各種考驗,你會顯露出自己的本心。 尋常日子就像正式的應酬:你一秒鐘也不用袒露自己。 你微笑、你客套,你誰也不得罪地全身而退, 你不用讓人知道你真正是誰。 一旦遇上真正的危機,情勢就會逆轉。 你必須有所抉擇,而這一抉擇, 你懷的是什麼心也就明明白白。 =============== 我們所處的現世,就是一座迷宮,我們每天都在裡頭打轉。 有些人庸庸碌碌,有些人則在歧路裡忽左忽右,永遠沒有盡頭。 會有這個迷宮,是因為我們自以為生活可以回歸「常態」, 這反映了我們的自我中心與個人主義。 我們刻意閉眼無視,希望生活能回到過去, 我們在這過程中忽視的,是「以前的日子也沒多好」。 【內容簡介】 在世紀疫情的危機當中,數十億天主教徒敬愛的人間牧者見證了全球社會的殘酷行徑與貧富差距,暴露出前所未見的兇性。同時他也在許多人的韌性、善心與創意裡,窺見了我們的社會、經濟與環境,在疫情之後如何突破圍框、獲得救贖的途徑。教宗方濟各在書中罕見地直言不諱,敦促我們「別浪費了這次的苦痛」。 他在書的開頭,探究了如何因應各種個人或世間的動盪,以及這場危機能讓我們學會什麼。憑藉前所未見的坦誠態度,他揭露了自身的數場遭遇,說明了這些歷練如何使他脫胎換骨,變成更好的人。他揭示了危機的本質就是一種「選擇」:我們可以執迷不悟地想要回到過去,也可以拿出面對挑戰與改變的無比勇氣。 教宗接著對體制與意識形態提出了犀利批評,他認為這兩者合謀,造成了當前危機——從對人與環境傷害的冷漠無視,一心只知牟利的全球化經濟,到不惜犧牲民眾利益煽動恐懼、奪取權力的不肖政客,都是他的針砭標的。他要我們勿忘天主教徒的首要職責就是服務他人,尤其要效法耶穌基督去服務貧苦與邊緣之人。 教宗提出了後疫情時代的希望藍圖,鼓勵我們為全人類打造一方更美好的世界,一個把弱勢者與自然環境置放於生命核心的世界。為此宏願,他不光援引信仰上的資源,也同時徵詢了知名科學家、經濟學者、社會運動人士與各方意見領袖的灼見。但除了說講道理,他還舉實例闡明了當普羅大眾可以放下歧見、朝著共同目標行動時,有多少我們以為不存在的可能性,將會浮現於世間。 他不時以深刻凝鍊的睿智觀察與我們一同思辨:非傳統思想的價值在何處?我們為何應該大幅增加女性領導人在教會與社會中的力量?他在布宜諾斯艾利斯的街上拾荒,得到了何種發想⋯⋯等關乎價值與選擇的生命課題。 本書是一次頓悟、是一份召集令,書中藏著一位近在眼前、值得深掘、內心最熱情無限的教宗。只要我們的心胸能像書裡所說的那般開放,改變世界的夢想就絕不會是幻想。 【教宗的疫情時代美好生活提案】 ◉ 想要在這場危機之後出落成更好的人,我們必須清楚地看見、睿智地揀選、正確地實踐。讓我們促膝長談。讓我們勇敢夢想。 ◉ 我們必須重新設計經濟,以便在每個人都能活得有尊嚴之餘,也能保護並再造地球的自然。 ◉ 「個人版COVID-19」能結出的最豐碩果實是什麼?我會說是耐心,上頭再撒點健康的幽默感。如此,我們將得以咬牙堅持下去、創造出空間,讓改變成真。 ◉ 當我說起改變,我的意思是:那些如今處於邊緣的人,必須成為社會改革的主角。 ◉ 與其說我們能夠吸收真理成為自身的一部分,不如認為是真理把我們吸收為它的一部分,是它不斷用美與善吸引著我們。 ◉ 所謂的罪,就是棄絕了愛這個世界所需要的自我節制。 ◉ 我們最強大的力量不在於別人對我們的表面尊重,而在於我們能提供給別人的服務。 =============== 希望 當風暴已過 而道路已馴 我們是船難 倖存的一群 流著淚的心 蒙了福的運 尚能存一息 我們實歡欣 陌生的臉孔 擁其入懷中 自詡何其幸 友人長左右 我們將牢記 所有的失去 曾經無所悉 今謹記於心 無人可羨嫉 歷劫同一體 從此齊奮起 內心復悲憫 眾益更珍惜 眼中無己利 付出更大器 行事有決心 世人皆知理 生命易凋零 生者須同理 逝者宜追憶 市集一老翁 無名常需索 曾經伴左右 今失其所蹤 焉知那老翁 天主扮其容 未曾詢其名 皆因不得空 萬事皆神蹟 萬物皆贈禮 生命為我取 心中存敬意 待風暴過去 愧向天主請 使我更勝昔 合祢夢中意 本書特色 ◉ 教宗方濟各於COVID-19爆發後最新著作,完整呈現普世精神導師對世界前/後疫情時代各大核心議題之表態與思緒梳理,是疫情烏雲罩頂時刻來自教宗視角的一盞闇中明燈。 ◉ 教宗為當代貧苦者與弱勢階層發聲的語重心長喊話,從社會暴力、生態破壞、氣候災難,到制度扭曲、心靈崩墜乃至金錢之惡,對既得利益者與惡質社會結構提出強力訓斥。更提出「去中心化」與「超越」的思想出路以及「看見/揀選(明辨)/實踐(行動)」的三段式邏輯策略,透徹深刻,金句連篇。 ◉ 由教宗傳記權威作者艾夫賴格(Austen Ivereigh)博士協力完成,近期唯一的教宗「心裡話」與思想層面「近距離直擊」,詳述方濟各所歷經的生死試煉與人生關卡,以及一路行來的心智與靈性昇華。 ◉ 收錄由古巴演員Alexis Valdés撰寫、感動教宗與全世界的疫情時代〈希望〉之詩。 名人推薦 丁松青/天主教新竹教區清泉天主堂本堂神父 江漢聲/天主教輔仁大學校長 洪山川/天主教台北總教區榮休總主教 陳建仁/前副總統、中研院院士 詹德隆/輔仁聖博敏神學院教授 劉一峰/天主教花蓮教區玉里天主堂本堂神父 鍾安住/天主教台北總教區總主教 ——共同推薦(依姓氏筆畫排序) 《讓我們勇敢夢想》是一道行動的號召。本書由教宗方濟各在疫情期間寫成,他對我們發出挑戰,要我們擺脫以自我為中心的生活,多多關注他人,特別是窮人與需要幫助的人——感受他們的痛苦,以恢復他們的尊嚴。他從疾病與痛苦的親身經歷出發,辨別出誘使人僵化和悲觀的「邪惡精神」,以及導向開放和慷慨的「良善精神」。我同意教宗在這本動人著作中所說的一切,並祈禱本書中文版成為危機時期的智慧燈塔。 (丁松青/天主教新竹教區清泉天主堂本堂神父) 從二〇二〇年開始,來勢洶洶的COVID-19跨越了邊界、種族,面對這個全世界的考驗,我們每個人都依著自己的過往經驗、生活環境、經濟情況和宗教信仰,而有不同的反應。教宗方濟各身為天主教會的大牧人,看到很多義大利人被這波疫情大浪侵襲、看到那麼多人因為這個災難受到很大的痛苦,他告訴我們要勇敢面對,更要用自身的信仰來探尋這個大考驗的意義。為什麼天主允許那麼大的考驗?身為人類一份子的我們要做什麼來助人得救呢?經過了那麼大的心靈地震,要怎樣保持人與人之間的關係呢?在這樣一個全世界的災難中最受影響的又是誰呢?教宗方濟各用這本書回答了這項人生的深奧難題,他為我們開啟一條新路,呼籲全世界的人要團結起來面對,不只是共同面對COVID-19這個全球性的災難,更要看見在各地、甚或遙遠他方所發生的苦難。如同他所說的,首先要特別關心那些弱勢族群,我們才能積極地建立天主的國。這是一本富有啟發意義的書,相信讀者讀了本書後,藉由教宗方濟各廣闊的視野和胸襟,對於未來的人生將可獲得有意義的啟示。 (劉一峰/天主教花蓮教區玉里天主堂本堂神父) 教宗方濟各是全世界十三億天主教徒的精神領導者。八年前就職教宗職時,他取自己的名號為方濟各,主要在師法十三世紀的大聖人聖方濟各神貧的精神,並愛護、關懷周圍弱小的人們,帶給所有人基督的愛與救贖。他一直強調真正的權力是服務,尤其是服務最貧窮、最弱小以及最沒有地位的人。他在本書中提醒我們:COVID-19的出現,教訓我們沒有照顧好地球——我們的家園。他呼籲世人拿出勇氣、負起責任,導正我們的腳步,努力避免環境惡化的嚴重後果。這是教宗方濟各在後疫情時代思想、言論的匯集,他啟發人們搭建通往更美好未來的橋梁,這就是他的「夢想概要」。願讀者能從中獲得啟發,並一起促進人類社會的進步與和諧。 (鍾安住/天主教台北總教區總主教)

Book Summary:

Anna Rowlands offers a guide to the main time periods, key figures, documents and themes of thinking developed as Catholic Social Teaching (CST). A wealth of material has been produced by the Catholic Church during its long history which considers the implications of scripture, doctrine and natural law for the way these elements live together in community - most particularly in the tradition of social encyclicals dating from 1891. Rowlands takes a fresh approach in weaving overviews of the central principles with the development of thinking on political community and democracy, migration, and integral ecology, and by considering the increasingly critical questions concerning the role of CST in a pluralist and post-secular context. As such this book offers both an incisive overview of this distinctive body of Catholic political theology and a new and challenging contribution to the debate about the transformative potential of CST in contemporary society.

Book Summary:

First James Lovelock, and recently Prince William and David Attenborough believe that we have reached a tipping point in the process of climate change. Whether they are right or not, it is certainly true that the impact of humankind upon the ecology of the earth has reached a point where real changes in human behaviour are required. If managers are to be enablers of planetary survival then we need to develop a new approach to risk, which explicitly includes ecological limits upon economic behaviour. This implies a fundamental reorientation of their role in allocating resources to minimise risk and maximise reward. This book brings together some of the brightest contemporary thinkers on leadership, complexity and sustainability to consider the big ideas that we will need to make the changes required, and to outline the major themes that can inform a new approach to constructing a green world. It looks at how to ensure that local models of sustainability are able to flourish in the context of global networks and presents specific case studies of markets and organisations that offer insights into the development integrated solutions and the leadership lessons we can learn. Combining both theory and practice, this book serves to guide business managers and provides deeper insight and critical perspectives on some of the key issues facing leaders moving towards the green economy. It also provides useful supplementary reading for students in business and environmental studies.

Universal Basic Income in Historical Perspective

  • File Pdf: universal-basic-income-in-historical-perspective.pdf

Book Summary:

This new edited collection brings together historians and social scientists to engage with the global history of Universal Basic Income (UBI) and offer historically-rich perspectives on contemporary debates about the future of work. In particular, the book goes beyond a genealogy of a seemingly utopian idea to explore how the meaning and reception of basic income proposals has changed over time. The study of UBI provides a prism through which we can understand how different intellectual traditions, political agents, and policy problems have opened up space for new thinking about work and welfare at critical moments. Contributions range broadly across time and space, from Milton Friedman and the debate over guaranteed income in the post-war United States to the emergence of the European basic income movement in the 1980s and the politics of cash transfers in contemporary South Africa. Taken together, these chapters address comparative questions: why do proposals for a guaranteed minimum income emerge at some times and recede into the background in others? What kinds of problems is basic income designed to solve, and how have policy proposals been shaped by changing attitudes to gender roles and the boundaries of social citizenship? What role have transnational networks played in carrying UBI proposals between the global north and the global south, and how does the politics of basic income vary between these contexts? In short, the book builds on a growing body of scholarship on UBI and lays the groundwork for a much richer understanding of the history of this radical proposal.

  • File Pdf: security-through-cooperation.pdf

Book Summary:

This book makes the case for why cooperation is the key to security within and between states, and for dealing with complex threats and challenges to international peace and security. It argues that cooperation is not altruism or liberal internationalism, rather it is in the self-interest of states. Drawing on both theory and practice, it looks at how cooperation can be promoted within and between states as well as in the global community. It explains the concept of ‘cooperative security’ and its potential contribution to promoting integration against the current of fragmentation. Furthermore, the book explores the potential impact of technology on cooperation. It makes an urgent call for new ideas and approaches to encourage people and states to work together to deal with complex threats and challenges. This book will be of particular interest to students of diplomacy studies, foreign policy and international relations, and to practitioners dealing with security issues.

Book Summary:

Even by the most unrestrained estimates, the Covid pandemic never approached the lethality of the Spanish flu of 1918. Yet the effect that our fears, amplified by the mass media, had on society were infinitely more debilitating. In times such as these, our Christian faith has always offered hope and strength. But this past year was different. The reservoir of Christian belief was drained to dangerously low levels, and many Christians succumbed to the epidemic of fear. In this clear-eyed book about the real Covid crisis, Philip Lawler dissects how Church leaders and the faithful responded to this health emergency. He explains the devastating effects on society when Church leaders tell their people not to attend Sunday Mass, and when they ban Confession, marriages, and baptisms. He tackles the dangerous consequences of treating schoolchildren like lepers and explores the ethics of vaccines and the plight of parish priests caught in the middle. Best of all, Lawler reveals how faithful Catholics responded to major crises in previous centuries and calls on today’s Christians to display the same courageous faith that once offered hope to a fearful world — one that radiates inner peace, confidence, and hope in times such as these. Epidemics may come, wars may rage, and governments may teeter and fall, but when our eyes remain fixed on the Lord, we will know serenity and draw souls to Christ. Our hope and courage will be contagious, and our society will be saved from the death spiral into fear, hatred, and despair that we are witnessing.

Book Summary:

In the shifting sands of today’s uncertain world, where traditional paradigms are fragmenting and everything seems in a state of flux, the biblical mountains endure as unshakable and steadfast. In their caves and canyons linger ancient voices that can startle us into new insights and awaken in us new ways of seeing the world and ourselves. In this book we go on a quest to locate the ancient voices of those who actually lived in these mountains, who knew both the physical contours and spiritual secrets of the summits and who long pondered their mysteries. We will rediscover texts and fragments that have been long forgotten in the West. The pandemic has filled the world with uncertainty and fear. We will discover wisdom and insights that are strikingly relevant to this unfolding world crisis and that speak with an uncanny directness to our situation. But the wisdom here is timeless and enduring, and readers will benefit from these ancient voices in all generations and in all sorts of circumstances. This book is not so much an anthology of forgotten voices as a sourcebook of spirituality and a guidebook for the spiritual adventure.

Book Summary:

After darkness, there is always light In a time of increasing uncertainty, Rethink offers a guide to a much-needed global 'reset moment', with leading international figures giving us glimpses of a better future after the pandemic. Each contribution explores a different aspect of public and private life that can be re-examined - from Pope Francis on poverty and the Dalai Lama on the role of ancient wisdom to Brenda Hale on the courts and Tara Westover on the education divide; from Elif Shafak on uncertainty and Steven Pinker on Human Nature to Xine Yao on masks and Jarvis Cocker on environmental revolution. Collectively, they offer a roadmap for positive change after a year of unprecedented hardship. Based on the hit BBC podcast, and with introductions by presenter and journalist Amol Rajan, Rethink gives us the opportunity to consider what a better world might look like and reaffirms that after darkness there is always light.

Kosher Hate

  • Category : Religion

  • File Pdf: kosher-hate.pdf

Book Summary:

In this provocative and wide-ranging book, Shmuley Boteach makes the case for Kosher Hate, a seemingly paradoxical idea derived from Jewish theological tradition. In this startling and original defense of hatred as a moral response to evil, Boteach challenges the liberal notion that understanding and forgiveness are the appropriate response to evil deeds, arguing that this is merely a secularized version of the misguided Christian teaching—one that many Jews have embraced—that we must “turn the other cheek” and “love our enemies.” Instead, he maintains that it is Godly to hate evil and it is our duty to do everything we can to bring evildoers to justice. While forgiving petty slights is admirable, doing so with mass murder is an abomination. While loving our enemies is noble, this applies to those who steal our parking space or get our promotion at work. It does not apply to God’s enemies, those who engage in genocide and whose murderous ways destroy civilized living.
