A Poor and Merciful Church : The Illuminative Ecclesiology of Pope Francis, Paperback Book

A Poor and Merciful Church : The Illuminative Ecclesiology of Pope Francis Paperback

Description

In this insightful text, Stan Chu Ilo addresses key questions that face modern Catholicism, particularly in Africa.

He shows how two key themes of Pope Francis-the church of the poor and the church of mercy-have deep roots in biblical, patristic, and diverse ecclesial traditions.

In Ilo's focus on Africa, he offers a "Triple A ecclesiology" of accountability, accompaniment, and action guided by some of the practices and theological aesthetics of Pope Francis.

The result is a road map and guide for the mission of God in history beyond the papacy of Pope Francis.
