Compassion and Solidarity
The Church for OthersBook - 1992
In the forthright style that has earned him a reputation for controversy, theologian Gregory Baum presents the new Faith and Justice movement in various churches -- especially the Roman Catholic Church -- together with the considerable opposition to it. He discusses why many Christians are becoming activists, turning their faith into deeds by working for the liberation of the poor. He argues for a new ecumenism, permitting a more representative opinion within the Church and, in a larger sense, for what he believes are the fundamentals of a "just society."
