OWT 10: Familiy (engl.)
Living together in the Church and the World
‘The joy of love experienced by families is also the joy of the Church’ are the words with which Pope Francis begins his Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
This volume in the One World Theology series also examines the situation and the chal-lenge(s) confronting families from a global perspective.
The authors from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe present their personal views and experience of what constitutes family in their respective environments, of the different forms family can take and the transformation processes to which it is subjected, of the challenges facing families, of the relationship be-tween the Church and families, and of the need for a forward-looking family apostolate.
Their contributions, coloured as they are by their individual contexts and perspectives, enable this volume in the One World Theology series to function as an intercontinental platform for an exchange of views within the universal Church. The focus here is on an equitable dialogue between and within the local churches.
