The Catholic Church: Nature, Reality and Mission

Overview

Walter Kasper is already well-known and loved throughout the English-speaking world. He has held high office in the Vatican but until his recent retirement has felt constrained from publishing what he really thinks and his vision of the Church for the future. Here he treats complex matters from many different perspectives and angles but always writes in dialogue with the modern world. This book is at once traditional but entirely contemporary.
