Inclusivity: A Gospel Mandate by Diarmuid O'Murchu, Diarmuid Ao Murchau

The bestselling author of God in the Midst of Change makes the strongest case yet for the king of church that was and has been, laying bare its historical, theological and spiritual roots. Diarmuid O'Murchu holds high the millions on the margins of the church as well as those who honor Jesus but feel they don't fit in because of alternative vision or minority status resulting from race, ethnicity, social standing, or sexual orientation. Inclusivity offers a faith dynamic characterized by discipleship with an adult Jesus in the service of an adult God. It is a gift of the "Pope Francis effect," an inevitable drive to reach out and bring in, the next step in a movement toward spiritual wholeness.
