The Radical Gospel of Bishop Thomas Gumbleton

Peter Feuerherd

During his 38 years as auxiliary bishop of Detroit, Bishop Gumbleton became known as a tireless and prophetic voice for peace and justice. When he was installed in 1968, he opted for the path of radical discipleship.

He left a lasting mark as a founding president of Pax Christi USA, and he served as a member of the committee that drafted the U.S. bishops’ historic pastoral letter on nuclear war.

An early opponent of the Vietnam War, and later an international ambassador for peace, Bishop Gumbleton has been an advocate for the poor and homeless, for victims of clergy sex abuse, for welcoming LGBTQ people in the church, and for promoting the role of women.

A ChurchOfThePoorA Church of the Poor: Pope Francis and the Transformation of Orthodoxy

Clemens Sedmak

In this unique treatment of the theology of Pope Francis and his notion of a “church of the poor” and the implications for theological orthodoxy, Sedmak argues that Pope Francis can allow us to understand "orthodoxy in a new key.”

Using resources ranging from scripture to Catholic Social Teaching to the early Church Fathers, Sedmak argues that an authentic and faithful church is not one obsessed with dogma or ceremony, but one that is poor as Christ was poor, in the multifaceted sense of that phrase: compassionate, unattached to material wealth, focused on flourishing and right relationship with God.

WhenTheDiscipleComesOfAgeWhen the Disciple Comes of Age: Christian Identity in the 21st Century

Diarmuid O'Murchu

“This book seeks to illuminate the spiritual journey of a small but rapidly growing Christian movement of those who seek to transcend inherited religions precisely because their enlarged sense of adult maturity requires them to do so.

For some, it means discarding a great deal of what no longer feels credible or useful. For others, it means reworking the tradition to make it relevant for the 21st century. For all, it involves an evolutionary calling forth new levels of engagement with the complex spiritual awakening of our time.”

With his trademark exploration of the meaning of “adult faith” in an age marked by new understandings of cosmology, anthropology, quantum physics, and evolution, O’Murchu also includes here reflections on his own spiritual journey.
