Abstract

The volume Street Homelessness and Catholic Theological Ethics is the publication of the proceedings of a symposium on “Street Homelessness and Catholic Social Teaching” held in Rome from 30 November to 2 December 2017 intended “to promote global dialogue on street homelessness” (xvii).  Besides the essays presented at the symposium, a few more essays are added to this collection. This book is a response to the absence of “any article or book by any theological ethicist anywhere in the world on the topic of street homelessness” (xvii).  It is listed the eighth book under the CTEWC series (Catholic Theological Ethics in the World Church). 

Street Homelessness and Catholic Theological Ethics is a timely publication discussing a tragic global phenomenon of street homelessness, especially when it increases alarmingly. The volume showcases a pathway to do contextual theology and immersive learning through compelling narratives of ordinary people on the street in search of a home, from the perspectives of practitioners, theologians, and social scientists committed to address the tragedy of homelessness.
