Item Description...
A vivid description of how to develop local churches able to address local problems in an effective and meaningful way. After Vatican II, in a land overwhelmed by poverty, social injustice, and human rights violations under the Marcos regime, a prophetic church leader asked the people to turn to the gospel mandate to love their neighbors and care for those in need. Thus, was the local church born in the Philippines. In eleven chapters, Bishop Claver describes how church leaders put the aggorniamento teachings of Vatican II into practice by forming small Christian communities that focused on reading and understanding scripture and then, guided by the Spirit, implemented those teachings in their own communities. A primer on how to develop a local church, the book presents models of participative leadership but also inspires Christians everywhere to make their own churches more responsive to local needs.
