The Joy of the Gospel

A Six-Week Study on Sharing Faith

by Paula Gooder


Price: £7.99
Publisher:Church House Publishing (CHP) part of Hymns Ancient & Modern
Published:November 2015
This six-part course for parishes and Lent groups is based on Pope Francis' much acclaimed recent reflections on mission and evangelism, published as Evangelii Gaudium ('The Joy of the Gospel').

Widely recognised as offering wisdom and vision for all Christians in a culture that is often hostile to the church, Evangelii Gaudium offers a positive and realistic approach to sharing faith in the modern world.

Paula Gooder introduces its key themes to readers in all denominations and challenges them to consider its application in their own contexts.

The course comprises six sessions:
1. Joy and the Gospel
2. Going Forth
3. Saying Yes and Saying No
4. Proclaiming the Gospel
5. Making the Kingdom Present in Our World
6. Being Filled with the Spirit

The book contains everything needed to run the course including Bible readings and leader's notes. Each person in the group will need a copy.
