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.

The author draws from the teachings of Benedict and comes up with these ten commandments for the environment. The book shows the wonderful continuity in the thought of Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis on this topic.
The book is short and to the point in 140 pages, easy to read, and is a good primer on the Christo-centric teaching of the Catholic Church on creation and the environment. It is a good introduction and reminder that our care for creation has deep roots in the Catholic understanding of the world.
