Intimations of a New Springtime
by Pat Collins
Published:15 December 2011
The author is a Vincentian priest and he has subtitled his new book Intimations of a New Springtime. He first reminds us of the new evangelisation called for by Pope John-Paul and Pope Benedict. He then goes on to detail the practical means by which the Christian message is spread. The twenty-eight chapters cover all aspects of evangelisation based on scripture and tradition. The emphasis throughout is on scripture as the very source of our strength and hope. He encourages all Christians to be involved in this new springtime of the Gospel which is assuredly on the way. This is not only a book for Catholics, but for all Christians who care about the universal church proclaiming the good news both in word and deed, by prayer and by action.
