Catholic Voices in a World on Fire


In an age of war, grave nuclear dangers, worldwide poverty, the arms trade and profit-driven globalisation, Christians need to draw on their own tradition rather than concoct new ones from secular sources. In this way we can do our part to illuminate culture in the way Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin did.

The writers in this volume are in various ways working toward those ends. They have handed in the political and theological labels 'left' or 'right' and have opted instead for faithfulness to Christian witness above Party and State.

The essays herein reflect a criticism of the dangerous powers in our world today through the 'subversive' powers of faith and spirituality. Every act of faith, whether in the political-cultural or contemplative-personal spheres is a counter-cultural word in our time, reflecting the light of the Gospel of Jesus.

Edited by Stephen Hand with contributions from Tom Cornell; Jim Forest; Thomas Storck; Keith Fournier, John P. Hubert; Caryl Johnston; Nancy Forest; Judy Jones; Carol O'Reilly; Kathryn Mulderink; Judith Moriarty; Maggie Hall; Frank Capone; Stephen Hand; and Barth Bracy.
