About this product
- DescriptionPenned by the leading intellectual in the American Catholic hierarchy, this debut brings together some of the most influential writings on the Catholic vision-t just the Church itself but of the relation and unity of all people. Weaving together intellectual insight and personal wisdom, this investigation offers a lumius Catholic vision of communion, illustrating the Church's relation to numerous religions as well as the secular world. Drawing from both the author's observations of Catholicism in cultures around the globe and countless theologians' perspectives-including Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, Thomas Aquinas, and Francis of Assisi-this analysis demonstrates how to recognize the self-giving, liberating God who provides freedom from the competitive, oppressive gods of secular modernity. This overview also recalls an assortment of fascinating stories, from a poignant moment with a n-Christian in Zambia to the humbling dedication of volunteers who came to observe Pope John Paul II's visit to Mexico City. Confronting controversial issues head-on, this volume will inspire Christians everywhere while also offering n-Christians a renewed understanding of what a Christian lifestyle means for political and personal life today.
