Product Overview

`Raymond G. Helmick invites us into meditation on the nature of Christian faith. He asks us to consider whether in living that faith we adequately appreciate that faith saves not only us, but others. We are invited to believe not only for our own salvation but so that the church may be a sacrament of faith, hope and charity for others. Do we compromise the faith of others as we fight with one another over our own?...All too aware of the limitations of our humanity, Helmick has a humble yet abiding hope in the possibility of humanity to understand the challenges of diverse traditions and to live respectfully with that diversity. A catalyst in so many negotiations for unity and peace, Helmick brings his own stance to reflect not on reconciliation or peace itself, but rather on faith.' James F. Keenan, SJ from the Foreword

`This book is about what community of faith means in times of profound social change. As a Catholic theologian, Helmick catches up all of the issues that face the ecumenical church in ways that foster respect for difference, an appreciation of complexity, and finds value in the Gospel call to forgive and to follow the path of reconciliation. It is the story of ministry on the edge by one who marches to a different drummer.' Rodney Petersen, Boston Theological Institute, Newton Centre, USA
