Author(s): Paula Gooder
This six-part course for parishes and Lent groups is based on Pope Francis' much acclaimed recent reflections on mission and evangelism, published as Evangelii Gaudium ('The Joy of the Gospel').
Widely recognised as offering wisdom and vision for all Christians in a culture that is often hostile to the church, Evangelii Gaudium offers a positive and realistic approach to sharing faith in the modern world.
Paula Gooder introduces its key themes to readers in all denominations and challenges them to consider its application in their own contexts.
The course comprises six sessions:
1. Joy and the Gospel2. Going Forth3. Saying Yes and Saying No 4. Proclaiming the Gospel 5. Making the Kingdom Present in Our World 6. Being Filled with the Spirit
The book contains everything needed to run the course including Bible readings and leader's notes. Each person in the group will need a copy.
The Foreword to the book has been contributed by the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Birmingham and the Anglican Bishop of Truro, Co-chairs of the English Anglican-Roman Catholic Committee.
A money-saving pack of 6 books (for the price of 5) is also available.
