U.S. Catholic Book Club: Claiming Earth as Common Ground

Claiming Earth as Common Ground is a great discussion-starter for any parish group. With question guides for each chapter, action steps, and further resources, the book is designed to be very practical.

"The time for platitudes is past," writes author Andrea Cohen-Kiener. She and contributors from other faiths delve into the "nitty-gritty"- issues of race, class, and theology that prevent groups from making progress on environmental issues.

But this book isn't just about religious people saving the environment. "The environmental crisis is the manifestation of a spiritual problem," says Cohen-Kiener. Confronting this crisis might also save religion. -Megan Sweas, Associate Editor, U.S. CATHOLIC
