The Roman Catholic Bishops of the Caribbean, the Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC), have over the past forty years written statements addressed to their faithful and people in the wider Caribbean. The statements covered a wide range of issues impinging on the life and faith of Caribbean people, including political engagement, crime and violence, homosexuality, HIV-AIDS, sexuality, the environment. A key theme running through the statements is the concern with justice. This collection of critical essays and personal reflections explores the insights provided by these statements. In so doing, it presents a critical reading of the corpus with a view to presenting its relevance to the regional and global conversation on matters of human flourishing. The authors of the volume represent the diverse voices from within the Catholic Caribbean, particularly some fresh new voices. This collection brings together the voices of men and women—pastors, laity, theologians, political leaders, educators; each essayist considers a specific statement and provides a commentary and interpretation of its contents as well as a considered assessment of its impact on the life of the faithful. Academics, lay persons, pastors, policy makers and politicians will find this a useful collection.

Review:

"This volume serves as a reference point and model by which any new documents could be related to this collection, and would probably be cited as such a reference point in future years. Because there is no comparable book to this volume, it will remain the 'go-to' base for anyone who wants a brief but professional introduction to the local Roman Catholic response to some pressing Caribbean issues in the last part of the twentieth century and early years of the new millennium." - Fr. Paul Zilonka, C.P., The Passionists

"This text is essentially a secondary reference that will help scholars as well as pastoral ministers sharpen their exegesis of the actual pastoral letters themselves and provoke new directions for scholarly research and homiletics." - John Francis Burke, Cabrini College, USA
