"A great strength of this collection of essays lies in the willingness of the authors to tackle the thorny ecclesiological problem of exclusion from multiple perspectives, often shedding fresh light on a longstanding ecclesial issue." —Richard R. Gaillardetz, from the Foreword
As the title implies, Ecclesiology and Excluision addresses the many forms of exclusion in churches around the world, primariily the Roman Catholic church. Topics include the exclusion of marginal people, exclusion and racial justice, exclusion and gender, exclusion and sacramental practices, and exclusion and ecumenical reality.
