Posted 27th June

Congratulations to one of our recent doctoral graduates, Michel Simo Temgo SCJ, who has just published his thesis. It is entitled: Jon Sobrino and Pope Francis - A New Springtime for the Preferential Option for the Poor/Vulnerable? The book focuses on the use of the preferential option for the poor in theology today. Hence it turns to two contemporary Jesuits: Jon Sobrino and Pope Francis. Based on their understanding of the phrase, this book opens a debate about the search for an alternative theological expression. It suggests that the preferential option for the poor should be replaced by compassion for the vulnerable.

It is available as a printed book ($24.49) from Xlibris publishers (Bloomington, Indiana), and also as an E-book.
