Multicultural Theology and New Evangelization by Van Nam Kim

Multicultural Theology and New Evangelization sheds light on the central role of multiculturalism in the Catholic Church of the third millennium. In this book, Van Nam Kim addresses the challenges of new evangelization in the multicultural communities of the Church. Kim answers questions regarding how Catholics can fulfill their evangelical mission and looks at the special roles of religious sisters and lay Catholics, particularly women, in the Church. He also examines new procedures for forming future priests and the obligations of priests serving outside their homelands. Multicultural Theology and New Evangelization will inspire the Church hierarchy, seminary formators, priests, and the laity to rethink current approaches to Christian life and evangelization.
