Models of Christian service

models of christian serviceChristians are called to loving service of one another and the wider world. In his book, A Step Along the Way: Models of Christian Service (Orbis, 2015), BC theologian Stephen Pope features six models of Christian service: Dorothy Stang, Dorothy Day, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Jr., Oscar Romero and Pierre Claverie. According to Pope, these people show what it means to serve others in very distinctive and concrete ways, and he hopes the book will help readers think and talk about the Christian meaning of service. Pope also is the author of Human Evolution and Christian Ethics and editor of Hope and Solidarity: Jon Sobrino’s Challenge to the Christian Theology and The Ethics of Aquinas.
