A moving call for direction and down-to-earth local roots Jun 12, 2004
People Of God is a theological work concerning the church as "People of God", an image that came from the Vatican II that brought about changes in Catholic self-understanding, and brought the church to the role of the laity. Yet many sectors of the church shunned the term "People of God", preferring the image of the church as "communion." Jose Camblin, who has lived in Latin America for nearly his whole life, calls for the retrieval of the Vatican II's teaching that the Church is the whole People of God in spite of "official" ecclesiology during the past 25 years that has stressed the church's clerical and hierarchical character. A moving call for direction and down-to-earth local roots in today's faith.
