Product Description

In this insightful textStan Chu Ilo addresses key questions that face modern Catholicism, particularly in Africa. He shows how two key themes of Pope Francis - the church of the poor and the church of mercy - have deep roots in biblical, patristic, and diverse ecclesial traditions. In Ilo's focus on Africa, he offers a "Triple A ecclesiology" of accountabilityaccompaniment, and action guided by some of the practices and theological aesthetics of Pope Francis. The result is a road map and guide for the mission of God in history beyond the papacy of Pope Francis.
