gilt titles spine; "Ever since the Second Vatican Council the Holy Spirit has been leading the Church along new paths into. a more profound self-knowledge. A renewed understanding of Scripture, theology and liturgy is leading to a fresh awareness of the inmost nature of the Church and of its mission and ministry. In 'Towards a Civilisation of Love' Cardinal Hume brings his pastoral wisdom, his theological expertise, his deep awareness of Church tradition, and his personal faith to a fresh examination of the role and potential of the Church today. The vocation and mission of the laity, the fellowship of the people of God, the different aspects of ministry including both ordained and non-ordained roles,. the renewal of spirituality, the pilgrimage of ecumenism, and the local church of the future - all these areas are considered with sensitivity and clarity of vision. The Church, like Christ, is a sign of contradiction. In a world much addicted to power, aggression and domination, it stands for unconditional love and service of others ... When society has turned its back in general on religious belief and practice the Church more than ever turns to the deepest mysteries and leads all its members into an exploration of God. To read this book is to be filled with fresh excitement for the mission and ministry of the Christian community, and the realisation in that community of the life and love of God."; a clean copy in a price-clipped D/J.; 177 pages.
