Long Description
The Dominicans are to be found in every part of the world and engaged in every sort of activity, from fighting for justice and peace to painting and poetry. They live on many frontiers, of the Church and of the World, of the rich and of the poor, of the West and East, and these are places of growth and discovery. This book will communicate some of the inspiration and excitement to be found there by women and men who are both utterly committed to their faith but also to what is to be learned as well. >
Main Description
At a time when the Roman Catholic Church is deep in the mire of corruption and crisis, it is in need of a blast of Dominican fresh air. The Dominican order consists of friars, nuns and a growing number of lay people. All these categories of human being are represented in this book. Also represented in the chapters are intellectuals, artists, social and political revolutionaries and Vatican officials. The influence of members of the Order is widespread and thanks to the recent leadership of Timothy Radcliffe and the continuing rediscovery of the charism of St Dominic, this religious order is ideally placed to help to revive the life of the Catholic Church today. This is a revival which is most sorely needed.
