The Joy of the Gospel
This six-part course for parishes and small 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.
Acclaimed author, scholar and Member of the Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission, Paula Gooder introduces its key themes to readers in all denominations and challenges them to consider its application in their own contexts.
The course is designed for use over six weekly sessions, both for single denomination and ecumenical study groups.
