Posted by ida decesaris on

Dear Friends,


We are pleased to share news of the many awards that have come to our authors in the past month. The titles recognized here are a fitting reflection of the Orbis program, with our concern for the global dimensions of Christian faith, with special concern for those on the margins, and a spirituality engaged with the needs of the world. May these titles provide a reading list for the coming year!
