HowToWinFriendsForChristHow to Win Friends for Christ: One Conversation at a Time

Thomas Cavanaugh, John Love

The priests and pastoral ministers of our day increasingly reflect the multicultural, multi-ethnic, and multilingual nature of the church. For a variety of reasons, they come from diverse ethnic backgrounds and countries of origin.

Seminaries and religious communities are welcoming international candidates with the vision that diversity strengthens the character and mission of the church. Yet this ecclesial diversity also comes with unique challenges. To Be One in Christ is a resource that delves into the questions raised by these complexities and provides an in-depth analysis from theological, sociological, psychological, cultural, and Protestant perspectives.

LivingMissionInterculturallyLiving Mission Interculturally: Faith Culture, and the Renewal of Francis

Antony J. Gittings

Our globalized world increasingly brings together people of many different cultures, though not always harmoniously. In recent decades, multinational companies have sought more efficient strategies for authentic intercultural collaboration. But in today's multicultural world-church, faith communities too—from local parishes to international religious communities—are faced with the challenge of intercultural living.

The social sciences have developed some constructive approaches, but people of faith also need to build their endeavors on a sound biblical and theological foundation. This book integrates sociology/anthropology with practical theology, reminds us that good will alone is not enough to effect change, and points to a way of intercultural living underpinned by faith, virtue, and a range of new and appropriate skills.

 TheHelplessnessOfGod The Helplessness of God: Biblical Models of Leadership

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.
