Veteran minister and social justice advocate Donna Schaper has become a fan of the pope, and she has written him a series of letters—love letters, of a sort. She agrees with him on the environment, climate change, love of animals, and concern for the poor. But she has a lovers’ quarrel with him on the issues of women’s ordination and LGBT rights. Her letters are intimate and ornery, affirming and challenging. Pastor Donna loves Pope Francis, and she calls us all to join him in loving the world.

He examines the question of race, but through the lens of our bodies and what our bodies mean in the midst of a racialized world that perpetually dehumanizes dark bodies.
