Synopsis: The strongest case yet for an inclusive church, the kind that was and has been, and lays bare its historical, theological, and spiritual roots.
Diarmuid O'Murchu holds tight the millions on the margins as well as the outsiders who honor Jesus but feel they don't fit in because of alternative vision or minority status resulting form race, ethnicity, social standing or sexual orientation.
Inclusivity is not only for Christians but also for people of other faiths attracted to the vision and life of Jesus but disenchanted with the language of exclusivity and power. It presents faith dynamic characterized by discipleship with an adult Jesus in the service of an adult God. It is a gift of the "Pope Francis effect," an inevitable drive to reach out and bring in. It is the next step in a movement toward spiritual wholeness.
