Reconciliation, Mission and Ministry in a Changing Social Order, Robert J. Schreiter, C.PP.S., 96, Softcover

"No book could be more timely . . . . Schreiter asks whether the Christian community is equipped to work its mission, bringing together 'the scattered children of God.'"--J.G. Donders

This rare combination of spiritualty and theology uncovers layers of forgotten meaning of the term "reconciliation" and what it mans for the mission and ministry of the church. In exploring the spiritual and political paradoxes that inform the Christian's vocation to peacemaking Robert Schreiter finds the ultimate paradox in the Pauling notion that accords prioirty to the gracious, but secret, action of God in working to overcome the enmity between human persons in the cross of Christ--which becomes for the peacemaker a the symbol of deeper processes where discord is vanquished.

Robert J. Schreiter (1947-2021) was a priest and member of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. He published many books in the areas of inculturation, world mission, and reconciliation, including The New Catholicity, Reconciliation: Mission and Ministry in a Changing Social Order, and The Ministry of Reconciliation: Spirituality and Strategies (all from Orbis). He also edited African Faces of Jesus and Mission in the Third Millennium and co-edited Peacebuilding (with R. Scott Appleby and Gerard F. Powers). A past president of both the American Society of Missiology and of the Catholic Theological Society of America, Father Schreiter also served as dean of the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.
