A groundbreaking work in theological reflection, Promise and Hope presents a pastoral theology of accompaniment that responds to Pope Francis’ urgent call to put Jesus who reverenced the poor, the needy, the invisible, the other at the centre of the Church’s ministry. It provides a framework for creating parishes of accompaniment that are open, welcoming, healing and discerning. It offers practical steps towards clearly and compassionately responding to the often messy reality of human living within the context of faithful discipleship. Perfect for both academic settings, parish leaders, and adult faith formation, this text is a must-read for any thoughtful, engaged Catholic who cares deeply about the Church’s future.
