THE RISING LAITY
Ecclesial Movements since Vatican II
Author: Massimo Faggioli
Offers an analysis of the phenomenon of the new ecclesial movements with two different but compatible perspectives: historical and comparative. The historical perspective is necessary because the phenomenon grew in these last hundred years and a sociological-anthropological perspective tends to offer a non-dynamic view of them.
This book is important in the Church of today considering the new emphasis given by Pope Francis to the movements. A chapter is devoted to Pope Francis and the movements, analysing the unique aspects of the relationship between the pontificate and the movements.
