Item Description...
Overview
In his latest work, the noted Latin American theologian Leonardo Boff extends the intuitions of liberation theology, showing how they contribute to answering urgent questions of poverty and ecological degradation. If faith fails to appreciate the ecological paradigm, Boff argues, it only adds to the crisis and begs for reform. Focusing on the threatened Amazon of his native Brazil, Boff traces the economic and metaphysical ties that bind the fate of the rain forests with the fate of the Indians and poor of the land. He shows how liberation theology must join with ecology in reclaiming the dignity of the earth and our sense of a common community. To illustrate to possibilities, Boff turns to resources in Christian spirituality, ancient and modern, including cosmic Christology and the vision of St. Francis of Assisi.

THROUGH FRANCISCAN SPIRITUALITY THIS HOLY FRIAR EXAMINES OUR DEVASTATION OF NATURE IN HIS NATIVE BRAZIL AND ITS IMPACT ON POOR  Oct 22, 2007
Saint Francis most spoke and lived, based on the Gospel mandates, in intimate connection with Nature and with the poor. Through close and systematic reflection on his Franciscan spirituality, this holy and internationally influential Franciscan Friar, Father Leonardo Boff, here draws these threads together, teaching us how the suffering of the earth is also the suffering of the poor and the suffering of each one of us.

Through hearing the earth cry we are liberated to a new appreciation of our Faith, and of our call to action, in this case on behalf of the poor and the indigeous people who are further dispossessed through the destruction of the this siteian environment.

In fact, near the end of his exhortation The Sacrament of Charity: Sacramentum Caritatis, Our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI cries out for us to follow our Euicharistic compulsion to alter those economic structures which leave the poor dispossessed and the cosmic Creation destroyed.

This excellent ecological, economic and theological treatise first found publication by the great Catholic printing house Orbis Books in its Ecology and Justice Series ten years ago and now achieves its tenth printing. This indicates that the total number of volumes published by now reaches the six digits. Those volumes then fill seminary libraries, parish libraries, personal libraries and are resold through services such as this site, bringing the total number of readers to a whole new magnitude. How many works of modern theology reach and inspire so many voluntary and eager readers?

The principles and applications developed here by the great Catholic Theologian Leonardo Boff do not age but only grow more urgent. Perhaps this book is best received within a Catholic college with a professor capable of guiding students to comprehension and action; alone the reader armed with only prior paradigms may grow as lost as I would in the former Brazilian rain forest.

Nevertheless this caveat should not discourage anyone from purchasing and studying very carefully this excellent and systematic study presented with Father Boff's consistent academic and compassionate style, speaking fomr both the large heart and keen intellect which God and the finest scholastic theological training gave him.

Please see the vast body of Father Boff's work, including recently his beautiful meditations on our basic prayers: Praying With Jesus And Mary: Our Father, Hail Mary and Lord Is My Shepherd: Divine Consolation in Times of Abandonment.

But please do not forget this profound and systematic work as well, now so readily available here upon the this site. In fact it is most meaningful to purchase such a work which treats of the devastation of the this site basin here upon this very source!
 
Grito da Terra, Grito das povres  Apr 4, 1999
Leonardo Boff, the brazilian priest who tried to change those old catholic dogmas describes how human is finishin animal and vegetal life all over the world in the name of welfare.

A book that will make us undeerstand how blind we all are.
