The Church's Engagement with a Wounded World
Author: William T. Cavanaugh
Pope Francis in a 2013 interview likened the church to a field hospital. In this book the author adopts Pope Francis's metaphor to show how the church can help heal both the spiritual and the material wounds of the world.
As he examines the intersection of theology with themes of religious freedom, economic injustice, religious violence, and other pressing topics, he emphasizes that the church cannot condemn the evils of the world from a position of superiority. Rather its practices of solidarity with humanity must be based on a recognition that the church shares in the guilt of human sin.
