This booklet compares the texts contained the book The Teaching of Buddha with the social justice texts of the prophets (culminating in Jesus as one who is “more than prophet”). Despite the differences between the two sets of texts, the author defends the need to understand that they are complementary languages and that neither of them can be maintained or can reach fulfillment without the other. Every outcry of protest that does not flow forth from the interior richness of an authentic “silence” will be “political” but not prophetic.

In the face of the hells created by violence, oppression, and repression, the victims of injustice seem to have no other alternative than fight (action-reaction) or flight (silent submission). This booklet explores the “third way” of Jesus, which goes far beyond those two options. This “third way” is the path of active non-violence, a path that requires great lucidity, creativity, faith, and constancy.

Responding to this need is the theology of migrations, a new discipline grounded in biblical tradition and the magisterium. The author of the present booklet examines this pressing concern in depth, highlighting the five most important issues for our day and age: identity, dignity, justice, hospitality, and integration.

Taking as a reference Varoufakis’ book, “Talking to my daughter about the economy.

Eschatology is concerned with the 'beyond'. Politics, on the other hand, deals with this world, in its public dimension. Politics and eschatology are intimately linked: the former, because without the ultimate goal of a common good present dispensations degenerate into mere bureaucracy ; the latter, since invoking a Heaven that demands no historical transformation 'on Earth' is mere escapism and phoney spirituality.

Death is a subject that raises so many questions. A first question would be: where "are" those loved ones that death has snatched away from us? A second question: where will we "be" when the same happens to us? These are questions with complex answers that leave us with a sense of uncertainty and anxiety. This booklet seeks to reflect on the quest or search that these questions have brought about within the context of Christian theology.

The Apocalypse, therefore, is not a book that seeks to inspire fear in people by speaking of the dreadful events at the end of the world. What it seeks to do is to encourage Christians to bear prophetic witness to the Gospel, and it is perennial good news for all believers, for it declares that ultimately the Lord of history is God, not the empire that happens to be in power.
