Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Despite a slightly misleading title, this compilation does a creditable job of summarizing contemporary Catholic thought on the timely topic of the environment. The book purports to be about what Benedict XVI, who has been dubbed the green pope for his interest in environmental issues, is saying, but it contains substantial commentary from others as well, including his predecessor, John Paul II. Benedict is keen on the environment and has had plenty to say about it since his election in 2004. Koenig-Bricker is careful to point out that Benedict adheres to Judeo-Christian teaching, holding that the earth was created by God and is not a god itself, and that it is neither equal to nor superior to humanity, but GodÖs gift to humans.

More About the Author

Born in 1927 in Germany as Joseph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI has been head of the Roman Catholic Church since April 2005. A prolific author, theologian and university professor, Ratzinger served as an "expert" at the Second Vatican Council, and was tapped in 1977 by Pope Paul VI to lead the German Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. In 1981, Pope John Paul II called him to Rome to head the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where he served until his papal election.

Format: Paperback
Woodeene Koenig-Bricker brings wit, humor, and passion to this book about saving the planet before it is too late. Using her journalistic expertise, she describes the cutting edge policies of Pope Benedict for making Earth's ecological health a priority issue of justice and personal concern. She explores practical, everyday ideas that will enable individuals to positively improve the environment. There are also interesting facts, like how solar panels are installed throughout St. Peters, and how the Vatican is the first nation to have a zero carbon footprint. Very thoroughly researched, this book is a lively and inspirational read.

Woodeene Koenig-Bricker has woven together a superb blend of describing where the Catholic Church stands on taking care of the environment and explaining how Pope Benedict XVI is bringing these positive plans to fruition. As I read the book I was entranced with how she is able to take each idea and re-word it and then expand on how it has been implemented. Thank you Woodeene - I not only understand better how the Roman Catholic Church functions (I am not a Catholic), I am also impressed with how it is determined to improve this planet we live on and keep it habitable for future generations.

I found this book a fascinating commentary on the environment, sustainability, and how we as a species are beholden to do our part to help ensure it's survival. It was an enjoyable read, learning about The Green Pope and substantial efforts being made to protect our planet. I came away with a renewed sense of duty to help protect this precious gift, this earth. The author has a talent for instilling an already-engaging topic with intelligence and wit, making this highly-readable and very enjoyable journey into saving our planet. This should be required reading, as it brings new and thoughtful layers to the reasoning of why we must all do our part.

The Catholic Church takes a very strong position on environmental conservation and we don't hear very much about it. I have found most religious groups in the U.S. to be silent on very important environemental issues. Here is the articulate, spiritual voice I've been looking for. Pope Benedict speaks for an international church. He talks of environmental issues from a global perspective, not just the prespective of what is good for American jobs.
