In Liturgy and the New Evangelization, Timothy O'Malley provides a liturgical foundation to the church's New Evangelization. He examines questions pastoral ministers must treat in order to foster the renewal of humanity that the New Evangelization seeks to promote. Drawing on narrative, as well as theological concepts in biblical, patristic, and systematic theology, O'Malley invites readers into a renewed experience of the liturgical life of the church, learning to practice the art of self-giving love for the renewal of the world.
Timothy O'Malley, PhD, is director of the Notre Dame Center for Liturgy in the Institute for Church Life and a concurrent assistant professional specialist in the Department of Theology, University of Notre Dame. He is the founding editor of Church Life: A Journal for the New Evangelization.
One cannot do Church ministry today without a good and also faithful grasp of the new evangelization. This word, this vision, this practice of self-giving love cannot be ignored. It cannot be replaced by other projects, works, or strategies. Read this book. Study it with others. Then shape and reshape the good work you do.
