2017 CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOK AWARD WINNER! – THEOLOGY
Drawing on the documents of Vatican II as well as biblical, theological, and spiritual resources, Hinze seeks to develop a deeper understanding of what it means to foster prophetic obedience in the contemporary church. In the spirit of works by Johann Baptist Metz, Ignacio Ellacuría, Jon Sobrino, Dean Brackley, and Sandra Schneiders, this book advances a practical fundamental ecclesiology that combines a constructive theological argument with an argument for greater lay participation and "grassroots democracy" in the church.
