Visions of Hope
Emerging Theologians and the Future of the Church
edited Kevin J Ahern
Publisher:Orbis Books from Alban Books
Wow, what a fantastic book, filled with a host of young Catholic theologians' thoughts on a range of ideas that are at once new and old, new "emerging" theologies and traditions that arise in the light of, and because of, Vatican II. Can I also say what a perfect book this is too with the new words coming out of the Vatican from Pope Francis - this book surely can help articulate where the church could be going and how it's getting there for those not quite aware of what is going on at a theological level within the Catholic church. Sit down, grab a good cup of coffee and dive into some really refreshing, deep, insightful and intelligent theology that looks at really vibrant topics of real worth and consideration. New Communities, racism, sacramental theology, local church, changing diaconate, interfaith and a whole slew of other topics are covered here in this exciting (and yes I did use that word about an academic book!) look at modern catholic theology.
