One of Australia’s leading biblical scholars offers a wonderful gift to the Church to help Catholics and other Christians celebrate the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis. In this book, she combines deep scholarship and insight into the biblical text with an enthusiasm to uncover the richness of the ‘mercy texts’ that abound in the books of Old and New Testaments. The Blessing of Mercy is also an ecological exploration of mercy in the Bible, connecting intentionally with Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si and his proclamation of an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. Throughout, we are invited to re-read the biblical texts in light of the Pope’s invitation to listen to the cry of the Earth and the Earth’s poor. Above all, we are compelled by mercy to embrace the Earth as God’s creation and our common home.
