The Church in Africa and the New Evangelisation: A Theologico-pastoral Study of the Orientations of John Paul II

Front Cover
Gregorian Biblical BookShop, 1995 - Religion - 456 pages
The aim of evangelisation is to enthrone Christ as the centre of humanity by presenting Him as eternally young and this has characterized the whole of Christian history. The changing times call for a more timely proclamation of this saving message. This work intends to stress new structures and methods as well as a change of mentality among those who have accepted Christ to be God Incarnate, a prerequisite for the success of this mission. The author feels the need to indicate timely pastoral orientations before the beginning of the Third Millennium of evangelisation in general and the second century evangelisation in Africa in particular. The Magisterium, in the person of Pope John Paul II, designates this a priority and a life and death campaign.
