Highly recommended for parish leaders and staffs, DREs, catechists, RCIA teams, and all parish ministers. Also ideal for college students as an introductory ecclesiology text, The Many Marks of the Church encourages reflection on the responsibilities of "being church" in the third millennium. One, holy, catholic and apostolic: these marks have distinguished orthodox Christianity since the fifth century. Today, however, the Church is known by many other characteristics; e.g., it is prayerful, intellectual, catechetical, biblical, ecological, and sacramental. In this timely book, William Madges and Michael Daley invite over forty authors and theologians to reflect on both the traditional and contemporary marks of the Church. Contributors include: Dianne Bergant, Mary C. Boys, Cardinal Avery Dulles, Robert Ellsberg, Thomas Groome, Bishop Thomas J. Gumbleton, and Monika K. Hellwig. Highly recommended for parish leaders and staffs, DREs, catechists, and all parish ministers. Michael J. Daley teaches religion at St. Xavier high School in cincinnati, Ohio. he is a widely-published writer whose articles have appeared in U.S. Catholic, St. Anthony Messenger, RTJ: The Magazine for Catechist Formation, the National Catholic Reporter, and Momentum, among other publications. WilliaM Madges is the dean of the college of arts & Sciences at St. Joseph's University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is the author or editor of several books dealing with the history of the church and theology in the modern world. Along with Michael J. Daley, he is the co-editor of Vatican II: Forty Personal Stories (Twenty-Third Publications).
This is a refreshing and contemporary take on what makes the Catholic Church Catholic. What ?marks? it as such? In addition to the four traditional ?marks?: one, holy, catholic, and apostolic, Madges and Daley recognize many more. Thus they invited over forty authors and theologians to reflect on additional and contemporary ?marks? such as catechetical, biblical, ecological, charismatic, prayerful, intellectual, and sacramental. Authors include: Diane Bergant, Mary C. Boys, Cardinal Avery Dulles, Robert Ellsberg, Thomas Groome, Thomas J. Gumbleton, and Monika K. Hellwig. Highly recommended for parish leaders and staffs, DREs, catechists, and all parish ministers.
