Building Bridges of Fraternity, which offers in-depth and insightful reflections on Pope Francis’ highly thought-provoking encyclical Fratelli Tutti, comes at a time when the world stands in an urgent need of dialogue, peace and fraternity. The collection of articles in this book approach the message of Fratelli Tutti from a rich variety of perspectives: social conflicts, religious intolerance, political divisiveness, gender injustice, ecological destruction and media manipulation. The authors of the articles confront us with the philosophical foundations of many contemporary crises, which not only enables us to better understand the challenges of our times, but invites us to respond in the spirit of Fratelli Tutti. Building bridges of fraternity is the only sensible way forward, in a world that is being rapidly destroyed by discord and disunity. Contents 1.
