Book Review: Come, Have Breakfast: Meditations on God and the Earth

Award-winning theologian Elizabeth Johnson views planet Earth, its beauty and threatened state, through the lens of scripture. Each luminous meditation offers a snapshot of one aspect of the holy mystery who creates, indwells, redeems, vivifies, and sanctifies the whole world. Together, they offer a panoramic view of the living God who loves the earth, accompanies all its creatures in their living and their dying, and moves us to care for our uncommon common home. Elizabeth A. Johnson, a member of the Sisters of St Joseph, is Distinguished Professor of Theology Emerita, Fordham University NYC.

“Elizabeth Johnson is one of the world’s greatest and most gifted theologians. I can think of few people who have so profoundly influenced my understanding of God.” James Martin SJ
