Description
'Contemplating the current alienation of religion and Western society, Norris seeks its cause, then its cure, in a properly understood Trinitarian theology that allows the depth of Christian living to emerge.' John M. McDermott, S.J.Theological Studies 'Throughout this book Norris is concerned primarily with faith, to the extent that at times he becomes almost breathless with conviction. It comes as no surprise to see him highlighting the radically communitarian spirituality of Chiara Lubich, who along with a few companions learned from war and desolation how to live the New Commandment of Jesus Christ. The Focolare movement that they initiated seems to this reviewer to be, in terms of hope for the future, the best-grounded spiritual movement that has come into existence since the Second Vatican Council.' Brian PowerBooks Ireland 'It is the remarkable achievement of Thomas Norris to blend clear-eyed doctrine and deep devotion, as his critical thought grapples with present problems with a contemplative vision that sees beyond them. This work is indeed a remarkable instance of a revitalized Catholic theology: the range of its reference and its keen sense of the historical moment make it an inspiring source for theological students and a challenge for their teachers.'Anthony Kelly, CSsRAustralian Catholic University 'Norris raises question that are of fundamental importance to Christians ... highly recommended.
