Item description for Evangelizing America by Thomas P. Rausch...
Overview An exploration of the Catholic Church's evangelical mission in the context of North America.
Publishers Description The Catholic Church has been heavily committed to the Church's evangelical mission from its earliest days. Yet evangelization has been a challenge for all churches, especially Roman Catholic, raising particular questions and unique opportunities. Here is a collection of essays that explores the Catholic Church's evangelical mission in the context of North America. Written by a distinguished group of scholars, the essays probe the interdependence of culture and faith, survey different approaches to evangelization among contemporary Catholics, and look at what evangelization means in a parish context. One chapter focuses on issues crucial to the evangelization of Hispanics in the United States. Two chapters, one by a Catholic, another by an Evangelical theologian, explore what each tradition might learn from the other. Another addresses the difficult question of proselytism, while the final chapter explores the relation between the Church's evangelical mission and interreligious dialogue.
