Reflections on Inculturation.
Lucido, Frank, Ed.
The Catholic Church throughout the world, following the lead of the Second Vatican Council and Pope John Paul II, has begun to define its mission and identity in terms of the rich concept of evangelization. Father Herve Carrier states that evangelization has two essential components: (1) inculturation; and (2) liberation. Inculturation is more than forming a multicultural perspective in ministry. Inculturation speaks to truly making the Gospel message come alive in the hearts of all people. This volume contains a collection of reflections on the topic of inculturation, which is one of the more prominent themes of the new "General Directory for Catechesis." Following an Introduction, there are seven chapters: (1) "The Evangelization of Cultures and Catechesis" (Allan Figueroa Deck); (2) "Inculturation of the Faith: A Challenge in Our Day" (Joanne S. Saunders); (3) "Inculturation and Pastoral Ministers" (Frank Lucido); (4) "Culture as Vehicle of the Gospel: An Asian Perspective" (Cris V. Villapando); (5) "The Journey Home: Inculturation in Native America (V. Paul Ojibway); (6) "Inculturation: An African American Perspective" (Beatrice Cunningham); and (7) "Inculturation in the Hispanic Cultures" (Frank Lucido). (BT)
