God's Church in the World: The Gift of Catholic Mission presents a confident and joyful assertion of the Catholic character of Christian mission and its sacramental nature, exploring the transforming role the Catholic tradition can play in the evangelism. A range of outstanding contributors explore the gifts that the Catholic tradition - formed by a conviction that the presence of Christ in the Eucharist intensifies and motivates an awareness of the sacramental presence of Christ in the world - can bring to the church's engagement with the world. Chapters include: * Mission and the Life of Prayer * Mission and the Sacraments * Catholic Mission in Practice * The Virgin Mary and Mission * Vocation and Mission * The Sacraments as Converting Ordinances * Social Justice and Growth in Anglo-Catholic Churches * Reflections on Scripture and Catholic Mission * Catholic Mission: Historical Perspectives The contributors represent the breadth of Catholic traditions and identities in the Church of England today.
