“This provocative new book is for every person who turns on their tap, and takes a drink of water, without saying a prayer of thanks—in other words, you.” —James Martin, SJ (on the previous edition)
Just Water explores the necessity and availability of a supply of fresh water from the perspective of Christian ethics. This revised edition includes new data and updates on social developments related to water crises, insights from Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’, and a discussion of water justice from the perspective of the events at Standing Rock.
