A Century of Catholic Mission
2013 | 308pp | ISBN: 9781908355140
A Century of Catholic Mission surveys the complex and rich history and theology of Roman Catholic Mission in the one hundred years since the 1910 Edinburgh World Mission Conference. Essays written by an international team of Catholic mission scholars focus on Catholic Mission in every region of the world, summarize church teaching on mission before and after the watershed event of the Second Vatican Council, and reflect on a wide variety of theological issues.
Century of Catholic Mission is a missiological feast with the table richly spread with everything one needs to know about Catholic mission.
Gemma Tulud ruz, Senior Lecturer, School of Theology, Australian Catholic University
This book is a magisterial project, wider than the Magisterium. Stephen B Bevans has gathered and shaped an extraordinary resource for theological students, as well as for students of mission. To understand the beginning of a Catholic new era, with Pope Francis I, immerse yourself in this immense book.
The Rt Revd Dr Graham Kings, Bishop of Sherborne
This book is a wonderful gift to world Christianity. The breadth of its missiology, the scope of its historical survey, and the representation of the world church among its writers mean that this work is truly catholic in its scholarship and purpose.
Dr Cathy Ross, Lecturer in Mission, Regent's Park College, University of Oxford
