Pope Francis’ Welcoming Church

gointhe-streetsIn Go Into the Streets! The Welcoming Church of Pope Francis (Paulist Press, 2016), co-editors Joseph Professor of Catholic Systematic Theology Richard R. Gaillardetz and Thomas P. Rausch SJ, have collected essays by theologians exploring the ecclesial vision of Pope Francis. This volume considers the pope’s concern for a fresh reception of Vatican II, his efforts to move the church toward the periphery and accompany those who live on the margins of church and society, and the tension between the church universal and local churches, among other topics. In addition to Gaillardetz, contributors from Boston College include retired Theology Department faculty member Fr. Robert Imbelli and Fr. Richard Lennan of the School of Theology and Ministry.
