Item Description...
Through its framework of communion and mission, this book provides a clear and appealing vision of the Church, including critical insights from Church history, Church councils, and teaching. It explores critical issues that challenge both the individual and the parish community, including the role of culture, evangelization, and social teaching.

Publishers Description
"Ecclesiology: The Church as Communion and Mission "presents the basic information needed to have a clear understanding of nature of the Church.This book is a theological study of the Church, that is, an ecclesiology. There is a rhythm at work in the eucharistic Liturgy and thus in the Christian life as a whole that provides us with a key insight for understanding the Church. In this dynamic movement of coming together and going forth, symbolized in the rites of gathering and dismissal that frame the Mass, we have the basic elements for a theology of the Church. In theological categories, those basic elements may be termed "communion" and "mission." Reflection upon our ongoing experience of communion and mission can thus provide us with a vision of what it means to be the Church.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a little gem  Nov 9, 2007
Catholic theology needs basic treatments of post-Vatican II theology that avoid the ideological battles that so often bedevil the church. This short book is an outstanding exposition of what the church is (communion) and is for (mission), particularly well-balanced and clearly written. I think it would be equally acceptable to someone like Pope Benedict and someone of a very different theological stamp like, say, me. Lay theology courses and seminary classrooms would benefit enormously from using this book as a basic ecclesiology text.
Book Review  Jan 6, 2007
The book was required by an on-line course that I recently participated through the University of Dayton. The book was broad but yet conscise on the Mission of the Catholic Church. I would recommend this book for those seeking a basic understanding of the Catholic Church's Mission in the world.
