Christian Communities Recontextualise Faith in a Change of Era

The New and the Old is the latest addition to the acclaimed Mission and Education Series from Vaughan Publishing. In this book, authors Jim and Therese D’Orsa clarify the recontextualisation of faith in a time of deep change.

  • What does the term ‘recontextualisation’ mean?
  • Where did it come from?
  • Why is it important?
  • How do we recontextualise faith in a change of era?

This exploration seeks to situate current work on recontextualisation within recent Catholic experience – both cross-cultural mission experience – and the experience of the entire Church worldwide in its implementation of the Second Vatican Council, which took place between 1962 and 1965.

The New and the Old will demonstrate the gift of recontextualised faith has the power to provide leaders of hope-filled school communities to be co-creators of a ‘new humanism’ enabling them to respond to the profound change of era they are all experiencing.
