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

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.
