"In Caring for Souls in a Neoliberal Age, Bruce Rogers-Vaughn (2016) describes the impact of late capitalism on the political, economic, and cultural domains of our lives. ... This is, all in all, a remarkable book, and one that is dearly needed. While pastoral theologians have long asserted that there are links between personal, social, and political aspects of life, Rogers-Vaughn's well-researched and carefully argued volume offers an explanation of how these realms overlap and interact."
