Dr. Saracino is the author of four books. Her most recent book is Christian Anthropology: An Introduction to the Human Person (Mahwah: NJ; Paulist Press, 2015). This latest book is a textbook for undergraduate and seminary students and deals with the important and sacred relationship between human and non-human animals. Clothing: Christian Explorations of Daily Living (Minneapolis, MN: Fortress Press, 2012) examines the spiritual and emotional anxiety we negotiate through our adornment practices, and has recently been published in a Chinese edition. In her book Being about Borders: A Christian Anthropology of Difference (Collegeville, MN: Liturgical Press, 2011), she focuses on the theological implications of the borders of self, religion, and place. She is also the author of the book, On Being Human: A Conversation with Lonergan and Levinas (Milwaukee, WI: Marquette University Press, 2003).
She has published various essays in academic journals and collections on issues related to theology and difference, specifically gender. Two recent essays on that topic include: “Moving Beyond the ‘One True Story,” in Shoulder to Shoulder: Frontiers in Constructive Catholic Feminist Theology, eds. Susan Abraham and Elena Procario-Foley (Fortress Press, 2009), and “Feeling through the Limits of Conversation,” in Prophetic Witness: Catholic Women’s Strategies for the Church, ed. Colleen Griffith (Crossroad, 2009). She also has contributed to the National Catholic Reporter, writing book reviews in the areas of religion, ecology, and culture.
