Miroslav Volf, Matthew Croasmun, Ryan McAnnally-Linz
( The Open Field )
A guide to defining and then creating a flourishing life, and answering one of life’s most pressing questions: how are we to live?
What makes a good life? The question is inherent to the human condition, asked by people across generations, professions, and social classes, and addressed by all schools of philosophy and religions. This search for meaning, as Yale faculty Miroslav Volf, Matthew Croasmun, and Ryan McAnnally-Linz argue, is at the crux of a crisis that is facing Western culture, a crisis that, they propose, can be ameliorated by searching, in one’s own life, for the underlying truth.
In A Life Worth Living, named after its authors’ highly sought-after undergraduate course, Volf, Croasmun, and McAnnally-Linz chart out this question, providing readers with jumping-off points, road maps, and habits of reflection for figuring out where their lives hold meaning and where things need to change.
Drawing from the major world religions and from impressively truthful and courageous secular figures, A Life Worth Living is a guide to life’s most pressing question, the one asked of all of us: How are we to live?
Elizabeth O’Donnell Gandolfo
( Orbis Books )
Against the background of ecological devastation in the Americas, a growing list has emerged of environmental defenders whose care for our common home has cost them their lives. In Ecomartyrdom in the Americas, Elizabeth Gandolfo explores the meaning of their witness in relation to three recent developments in Catholic theology: the expanded understanding of martyrdom to include those who die in defense of gospel values (justice, concern for the poor); the expansion of Catholic social teaching to include care for creation; and the call for interreligious dialogue and cooperation.
