In a vision that holds the tensions and antinomies together, Rausch's picture is truly catholic.
This concise but well documented synthesis is an invaluable resource on Catholic ecclesiology, its ecumenical engagements, and prospects for the future as Christianity moves into the postmodern world.
The intelligence and clarity of this study, and the breadth of voices and issues it synthesizes, makes it a useful text for professors and students to use in surveying the landscape of ecclesiological tasks.
Rausch writes with ease and clarity about matters of deep concern of good people everywhere. Little of lasting value will be achieved in our efforts to advance Christian unity if Rausch’s plea for removing barriers and building bridges is ignored by church authorities.
Readers will come to the last page of this encouraging and enlightening book with the sober hopefulness imparted by good news.
We strongly recommend this new book for your thoughtful reading and reflection.
