Ecclesiology for a Global Church - A People Called and Sent (Paperback): Richard R Gaillardetz Ecclesiology for a Global Church - A People Called and Sent (Paperback)
Richard R Gaillardetz
R642 R531 Discovery Miles 5 310 Save R111 (17%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In Ecclesiology for a Global Church, Richard Gaillardetz provides a creative and comprehensive examination of the church, both theologically and in its global context. Gaillardetz brilliantly captures the dynamics of the church today, both in theological terms (as a people called by Jesus and sent into the whole world), and in social terms (at the juncture in history when Christianity has become a world religion and the church has become a world church). In seven magisterial chapters, Gaillardetz confirms the truth of the saying by the Venerable Bede: "Every day the church gives birth to the church." Integrating traditional ecclesiologies of the North with emerging insights from Latin America, Africa, Oceania, and Asia, Gaillardetz helps us understand what happens when the church takes cues not just from Scripture and Tradition, but also from women, Asian and African religions, and the challenge of promoting justice and peace in the face of globalisation and the environmental crisis.

The role of lay ecclesial ministers professionally prepared laity who serve in leadership roles is becoming critically more important in the life of the Catholic church. In Lay Ecclesial Ministry, theologians and pastoral leaders from diverse disciplines provide a deeper understanding, envision future direction, and offer inspiration for these new ministers and the community of the church. Building on the themes of the first official document addressing lay ecclesial ministry, Co-workers in the Vineyard of the Lord, approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in 2005, this book delves deeply into key topics. Authors reflect on dimensions of the Catholic tradition to enrich our understanding of this new reality of lay ministry in the church, to envision future developments, and to offer inspiration. Contributors draw on a variety of theological perspectives, including canon law, church history, ecclesiology, liturgy, and scripture, to ground understanding of lay ecclesial ministry within the Catholic tradition and to chart direction for further response to this newly emergent ministry. The book also offers inspiration and models of service to lay ministers, looking to stories of the saints and communities of vowed religious. Lay Ecclesial Ministry is an essential resource for the Catholic community in understanding and building upon this new and increasingly important component of church life.

Church Ethics and Its Organizational Context is the first book to provide a broadly interdisciplinary approach to understanding the leadership crisis in the Catholic Church in the wake of the sex abuse scandal and how it was handled. Well-known scholars, religious clergy, and laymen in the trenches of church formation and leadership come together from the disciplines of organizational behavior, theology, sociology, history, and law, to foster the creation of a new code of ethics that is both ecclesial and professional. Touching on issues of governance, authority, accountability, and transparency, this volume goes on to specifically explore whether and how professional ethics can shape the identity and actions of Church leaders, ministers, and their congregations. While evoked by the sex scandal in the Church, the essays in this book raise questions that have implications far beyond this current issue, to much broader issues such as the role of professionalism in ethics and what it means for an organization to engage in moral action.

Keys to the Council - Unlocking the Teaching of Vatican II (Paperback, New): Richard R Gaillardetz, Catherine Clifford Keys to the Council - Unlocking the Teaching of Vatican II (Paperback, New)

As the church marks the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, too few Catholics have an adequate grasp of what the council contributed to the life of the church. The problem is understandable. The Second Vatican Council produced, by far, more document pages than any other council. Consequently, any attempt to master its core teachings can be daunting. There is a danger of missing the forest for the trees. With this in mind, "Keys to the Council" identifies twenty key conciliar passages, central texts that help us appreciate the Vision of the council fathers.

Each chapter places the given passage in its larger historical context, explores its fundamental meaning and significance, and finally considers its larger significance for the life of the church today. Chapters include exploration of "Sacrosanctum Concilium's" demand for full, conscious, and active participation" in the liturgy;" Lumen Gentium's" eucharistic ecclesiology; "Gaudium et Spes's" Vision of marriage as an intimate partnership of life and love; "Nostra Aetate's" approach to non-Christian religions; and more.

Gaillardetz offers theologically clear and pastorally insightful considerations of: the character of divine revelation, the authority of Scripture and tradition the role of the pope and bishops in preserving the Christian faith the levels of church teaching authority, the central faith witness of all the baptized the possibility of disagreements with church teaching, and the proper relationship between theologians, the magisterium, and the whole people of God the authority of the believing community and the controversial questions that arise when there are conflicting interpretations of church teaching.

The Second Vatican Council has become an indispensable reference point for understanding Roman Catholicism today. Yet in spite of its impact, Vatican II was in many ways an unfinished council. The council bishops were able to establish key pillars in the construction of a new vision for the church of our time, but, for various reasons, they were not able to draw those pillars together into a coherent unified structure. This volume describes both the council's building project itself and the challenges facing the church today if we are to complete the project begun fifty years ago.

Catholic ecclesiology stands at the threshold of a new moment in the reception of the Second Vatican Council. The election of Pope Francis-coinciding with the fiftieth anniversary of the council-has inspired a fresh consideration of its teaching in such diverse areas as ecumenism, inculturation, missiology, and ministry. The chapters in this volume have their origin in a special symposium that called together over forty of the leading Catholic scholars from throughout North America in order to discuss the future of theological reflection on the church. The nine essays in this volume guided that conversation and offer an entry into some of the most pressing issues in ecclesiology today.

Despite the great changes that Vatican II brought to the Church, few people grasp the council's teachings, or are aware of the debates that have taken place in the past four decades regarding the council's authentic reception and implementation To respond to this pressing pastoral reality, distinguished theologian and professor Richard R. Gaillardetz focuses on three of the council's documents: 1) The Dogmatic Constitution on the Church (Lumen Gentium), 2) The Decree on the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church (Christus Dominus), and 3) The Decree on the Catholic Eastern Churches (Orientalium Ecclesiarum). In clear and accessible terms, the author outlines the history of these documents, and presents their central themes. This is followed by comprehensive and balanced analysis of how these texts have been implemented in the church. He concludes with some of his own proposals for furthering the vision of the Second Vatican Council.

Pope Francis has called for a church of and for the poor and has sought to reclaim the collegial vision of the Second Vatican Council. This book calls on ten distinguished theologians to explore the ecclesial vision of the first pope from the global South. Francis sees the church as the "holy, people of God." This is the church that enjoys in the Spirit what he calls "infallibility in believing" (infallibilitas in credendo): "We should not even think . . . that 'thinking with the church' means only thinking with the hierarchy of the church." Starting with an examination of how Francis' papacy both advances the themes of his predecessors and represents genuinely new developments, this volume considers his concern for a fresh reception of Vatican II, his efforts to move the church toward the periphery and accompany those who live on the margins of church and society. The pope seeks to shape a dialogical church that listens. Key chapters also explore the tension between the church universal and local churches, Francis' understanding of the importance of popular religion, and his particular vision of social justice.

What are the implications of Vatican II for the understanding and concrete exercise of doctrinal teaching authority in the Catholic Church?" "Teaching with Authority" faithfully represents the teaching of Roman Catholicism on the Church's doctrinal authority while highlighting areas where a gap remains between an ecclesiological Vision of the Church informed by Vatican II and the popular understanding and concrete exercise of that authority in the life of the Church today.

Dr. Gaillardetz shows that Vatican II did not so much produce one new ecclesiology as it recovered a number of ecclesiologies from biblical and patristic sources. Using images like the people of God, body of Christ, temple of the Holy Spirit, and pilgrim Church, along with such concepts as mystery, communion, and sacrament, the council breathed new life into reflection on the nature and mission of the Church. Since Vatican II, much work has been done by ecclesiologists to explore the new directions suggested by the Council. This book contributes to that post-conciliar project by developing a comprehensive theology of doctrinal teaching authority consonant with the ecclesiological Vision of Vatican II.

Theologians and graduate students of Roman Catholic ecclesiology will benefit from the scholarship behind "Teaching with Authority." And, because of its comprehensive yet non-technical treatment of doctrinal authority in the Roman Catholic Church, it's also a useful reference for al in pastoral ministry - ordained and non-ordained.

"Teaching with Authority"'s structure reflects the traditional three-fold distinction among the "subject" of doctrinal teaching, the object of doctrinal teaching, and the "exercise" or act of doctrinal teaching. However, the developments of the Second Vatican Council remind us of the importance of a fourth category, the reception of Church teaching by the whole people of God, which this work addresses.

Chapters in Part One are: "The Renewal of Ecclesiology at the Second Vatican Council," and "The Teaching Office of the Church." Chapters in Part Two are: "What the Church Teaches: In Service of the Word of God," and "What the Church Teaches: Gradations of Church Doctrine." Chapters in Part Three are: "How the Church Teaches: The Assistance of the Holy Spirit," "How the Church Teaches: The Ordinary Magisterium," and "How the Church Teaches: The Extraordinary Magisterium." Chapters in Part Four are: "Receiving and Responding to the Word: Corporate Reception of Church Teaching," and "Receiving and Responding to the Word: Personal Reception of Church Teaching."

Each chapter includes a select bibliography of English language resources aimed at then on-specialist. Dr. Gaillardetz concludes with a brief reflection on the future of the Church's teaching ministry.

He is also the author of "Witnesses to the Faith: Community, Infallibility and the Ordinary Magisterium of Bishops "and has written articles for "Church, Louvain Studies, Horizons, Diakonia, Worship, Eglise et Theologie, "and "The Journal of Religious Ethics."

Over the past three decades, deacons have proven invaluable in a variety of ministries in the church. Today's deacons serve in the traditional liturgical and sacramental areas, but their duties have grown in the areas of management and leadership. What is a deacon really supposed to do? What did the church fathers intend at Vatican II? Have their job responsibilities really changed from the church's earlier vision? These questions and many others are discussed in this seminal work, which is an up-to-date examination of how the order of the diaconate in the Latin Church relates and is in communion with other orders and their ministries. The authors are Owen F. Cummings, William T. Ditewig, and Richard R. Gaillardetz, who discuss diaconal theology from three differing perspectives. This book is composed of their three keynote speeches delivered the National Association of Deacon Directors in April 2004. It is essential reading for deacons, aspiring deacons, diaconate programs, as well as theologians.
