15.99I spent forty years in catechetical and pastoral ministry, including work as diocesan director of religious education. Looking back, I wish I had had Fr. Uju's book many years ago. It is a very practical volume developed by a pastor for a specific purpose: to teach and form baptized Catholic adults who wish to complete their sacramental initiation and become active and involved in the life of faith. This book is not academic, although it is based on a sound understanding of theology and pastoral practice. It is readable and informative. Pastors and parish teams can use this with confidence. Even though I am retired from parish ministry, I am very grateful to Fr. Uju for this work. I only wish it had been around earlier. Fr. John CostanzoDenver, ColoradoFrom the Fence to the Field: Growing in the Knowledge and Living the Faith as a Catholic is a masterpiece of an experienced pastor who has assisted many in their faith journeys. The basic questions and clarifications often sought by many practicing Catholics are answered in such a way as to make it simple and readable by everyone. Students and teachers of theology will also find in it an enriching pool of knowledge for the Sacraments of Christian Initiation. Fr. John Asomugha, C.S.Sp., PhD Harare, ZimbbweThe New Era of Evangelization challenges all to do more to sow the seed of faith. Fr. Uju's From the Fence to the Field, is one good response to that call.
