New book on Pope Francis by SPCM Doctoral Graduate just published


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.
