The RESILIENT CHURCH : Necessity & Limits of Adaptation
The Necessity and Limits of Adaptation
  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket by Avery Dulles, D.J.
  • Copyright © 1977 by Avery Dulles

" Renewal-without loss of identity-is the subject of this careful look at the problems facing Catholics in a time of radical change. "

" What is the Church's mission in the world today?
What is the role of the Pope and the church leadership?
What are the actual options available to committed Christians? "

" Avery Dulles, author of Models of the Church-a book hailed by Commonweal as "a masterly performance"-addresses these vital, much debated questions with boldness and clarity.
Fr. Dulles indicates the many ways in which Catholic theology can make room for valuable new insights from ongoing dialogues-while still retaining a fidelity to its own traditions, and without becoming so politicized or psychologized as to lose sight of the divine dimension of its own mission. "
