Publishers Description
In a world of conflict in which religious differences play a significant role, reconciliation grows increasingly important. The Ministry of Reconciliation shows how with a spirituality of reconciliation we can create the spaces in which reconciliation can happen, and with human strategies, how the process of reconciliation can move forward.

From wide-ranging travels Schreiter has gained a profound wisdom and hope as well as the questions and struggles to be faced. In Part One, "Reconciliation as Spirituality, " Schreiter poses this key question: "If God did indeed raise Jesus up to a new life that breaks the grip of violence and sin on the world, what should be the concrete object of our hope?" Each of the next six chapters then meditates on post-Easter appearances as recorded in Scripture. Schreiter's explorations of such events as "the breakfast at the seashore" (John 21:1-17) and "what the women saw" (Mark 16:1-8; John 20:1-18) reveal a direct pastoral style reminiscent of Rahner and Barth at their best.

From this profound and hope-filled beginning Schreiter goes on to emphasize how a spirituality of reconciliation without sound social and theological reflection on its implementation will fail. Part Two, "Elements of a Strategy for Reconciliation, " tackles such vexing questions as individual and social responsibility; truth and justice; amnesty and pardon; and how the church can aid in reconciliation. Schreiter explores questions as: How can forgiveness happen? What is justice, and how should it be sought and administered? How can a society be rebuilt that includes the perpetrators of evil?

Reviews - What do customers think about The Ministry of Reconciliation: Spirituality & Strategies?

A Good Starting Point  May 25, 2010
The Ministry of Reconciliation is an excellent book for those desiring a progressive Catholic understanding of reconciliation. Schreiter's approach is grounded in the vision of the Vatican II Council, and closely follows relevant Biblical models. Those seeking a more traditional Catholic understanding of reconciliation may prefer to look elsewhere. Within the context of pastoral ministry, some of the insights in this book may be a little too abstract or general to be of everyday use. While many of the ideas Schreiter presents are certainly stimulating, from a pastoral standpoint, more detail would be desirable. Some of the suggestions Schreiter makes would require careful pastoral implementation. Schreiter's other books and articles on reconciliation provide more material than this rather slim volume. In conclusion, while undeniably of considerable interest to pastors and lay ministers, this book can only really serve as a starting point for further pastoral reflection and action.
