Author:  Nicholas King

Nicholas King looks at what the Bible tells us about the exercise of authority. The message is that human beings, with the exception of Jesus, always get it wrong, unless they are prepared to ‘lead by listening’ or exercise authority as an act of loving service. For the only absolute authority is God.

Why speak of ‘the helplessness of God’? Because God is voluntarily dependent on our response, helpless until we make our decision, and will not force us to choose our own good. God’s love is never tyrannical, always utterly respectful of human freedom. That must be the way ahead for authority in the Church.

Handbook for Evangelizing Catholics

Author: Stephen J. Binz

Examines how Catholics are recovering the missionary dimension of their faith, how evangelization is at the heart of sacred Scripture, and how the Church and the world can be renewed through Scripture.
Binz was inspired by Pope Saint John Paul II, as well as by Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict, and in the book, he shows the connection between their collective call for a New Evangelization and learning Scripture as the powerful basis for succeeding in this outreach.
