Being Faithful : Christian Commitment in Modern Society Paperback / softback

Part of the Ecclesiological Investigations series

Description

This is a critical assessment of Catholic Faith in the modern world.

This book explores how the Christian life is lived in a pluralistic situation where different contexts of belonging give rise to different moral challenges.

While it is characteristic of modern life to exist in a postmodern situation where there is an erosion of comprehensive systems of meaning, we still live today in contexts of belonging.

We still seek to gather out of the fragments of modern life the sustenance of a network of belonging, belief and practice which comprise a faithful life.

The construction of such a life, not only for us, but for others, serves as the framework for our moral commitments.

Furthermore, sustaining and transforming social frameworks which shape various aspects of human life form the life task of adult Christians. "Ecclesiological Investigations" brings together quality research and inspiring debates in ecclesiology worldwide from a network of international scholars, research centres and projects in the field.
