Theology and the People of God
|Publisher: St Pauls Publications Australi|
This unique book brings together some of Australia’s leading Catholic scholars to offer a sacramental vision of reality. Collectively, the contributors engage in theological investigation (intellectual praxis), to explore some of the most challenging questions raised by history, science and philosophy.
Written in language accessible for teachers, students and clergy, it offers an ‘open-door’ into the theological academy, through which readers may walk to deepen their faith and theological knowledge. In the light of Vatican II, this compendium speaks to ‘the signs of the times’. At its core, it offers a theological vision and language to the people of God, so together as Church (synodally), we can engage in the great issues of our time.

A truly inspired and inspirational read for 21st century Catholics. At a time when many of us find ourselves asking ‘Where are we heading?’, Theology and the People of God comes along to challenge and provoke our vision and practice of a contemporary theology; one in which we reclaim that which sits at the essence of a loving existence.

In a fitting tribute to Fr. Gerard Kelly, his colleagues at CIS have contributed to this wide range of thoughtful and stimulating essays. This collection demonstrates the rich variety of ways in which theology nourishes and enriches the people of God in prayer, belief and daily life.’
Most Rev. Shane Mackinlay, Bishop of Sandhurst.
This fine collection will open windows for beginners, inspire students of theology, and encourage interdisciplinary dialogue among specialists. The contributors, as scholars and educators, facilitate encounters with the Catholic theological tradition in ways that are both accessible and engaging, and the scholarship behind each chapter is a gift to the reader.

This magnificent collection of essays by eighteen authors associated with the Catholic Institute of Sydney is a much-needed compendium for those who wish to understand and live Pope Francis’s vision of the ecclesiology of the people of God.
