MINISTRY IN THE CHURCH
A Historical and Pastoral Approach
Author: Paul Bernier
This comprehensive overview of the development of Christian ministry is revised to address historical developments and new questions in ministry in recent decades.
Bernier’s approach takes as its inspiration the notion that ministry is “the service God requires of all the baptized,” not just the task of ordained ministers or church employees.
An ideal textbook for students of ministry or ecclesiology, this book illustrates the fluidity and form of Christian ministry, and its place both in and outside the institutional Church. It is also a valuable resource for adult education as well as for pastoral ministers seeking to broaden their understanding of their roles.

Rediscovering Grace All Around Us
Author: Stephen Paul Bouman
Stephen Bouman explores how congregations may best respond to the many public crises that confront us today—mass shootings, terrorist attacks, hurricanes, flood, wildfires, tornadoes, even the debilitating effects of chronic and deep-rooted problems like racism and community violence.
He describes in practical detail the ways congregations can create spaces to lament, develop living liturgies, build public mission tables, and engage with others in discovering the transformative power of grace all around us.

THE FRANCIS PROJECT
Where He Wants to Take the Church
Author: Victor Manuel Fernandez
In this conversation with Paolo Rodari, Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernández, the theologian closest to Pope Francis, addresses in every detail the crucial aspects of this pontificate: the relationship between divine mercy and the emphasis on ethical requirements, the necessity of a church "outside" and in a permanent state of mission, the ecclesiastical resistance in relation to the originality of Francis's proposal, the strong sense of the "people" inherent in the mentality of this pope.
