A deeply moving new book by distinguished theologian Elizabeth A. Johnson is featured this month at the Weber Center Shop. Come, Have Breakfast: Meditations on God and the Earth ($28.00) has recently become a favorite here on the campus of the Adrian Dominican Sisters.

From the publisher, Orbis Books:

In her latest work, prize-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. A former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America and also of the American Theological Society, an ecumenical association, she is winner of the John Courtney Murray Award for distinguished achievement in theology, and numerous other awards.
