About the Author

His previous books include Migrations of the Holy: God, State, and the Political meaning of the Church and being Consumed: Economics and Christian Desire.


William A. Barbieri -- Catholic University of America -William Cavanaugh's adoption of Pope Francis's stirring metaphor of the church as field hospital is apt for his own theological work, which he continues here in a vein reminiscent of the doctors in M*A*S*H -- unblinking, subversive, mordantly witty, and always deeply humane. He clearly diagnoses the pathologies of consumerism and violence that afflict our culture and takes his scalpel to the myths and idolatries that undergird them. . . . In this book's interconnected interventions Cavanaugh once again displays the insight, acuity, and compassion that make him one of the leading theologians of these times.- Emmanuel Katongole -- Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame -Political theology at its best. Field Hospital confirms Cavanaugh as one of the most lucid, innovative, and interesting theological voices of our time. He has that rare ability to take complicated philosophical arguments and ideas and present them in simple and clear ways for both an academic and a general audience.- Matthew Levering -- Mundelein Seminary -Richly instructive. . . . Bill Cavanaugh intrepidly goes where few theologians dare to go, and his questions and answers remain resolutely theological against the strongest temptations to bow to the accepted discourses of our age. Those seeking to understand the perspectives that inspire Caritas in Veritate and Evangelii Gaudium need search no further: this is the book to read.- Joseph L. Mangina -- Wycliffe College, University of Toronto-Field Hospital sets forth an utterly unsentimental vision of the church as imperfect and vulnerable, her 'power made perfect in weakness.' Cavanaugh shows again why he is one of contemporary Catholicism's most important thinkers.-
