Pope Francis's encyclical on climate change and inequality may change the world, but that doesn't make it an easy read. As befits this document, the analysis--both political and theological--is dense and carefully wrought. The few phrases that have bubbled up into the popular press do not represent the whole. Naomi Oreskes's introduction summarizes the themes presented. The summary is useful. Comprehending the whole is worthwhile. Expect to review sections more than once. Mark Bramhall and Linda Korn provide a clear and appropriately didactic narration. Their performance is slowly paced and clearly pronounced to aid comprehension. They do not condescend to their listeners. They do not add drama when it is unnecessary. This encyclical repays careful study. F.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2015]
