Fr. Jim McManus’ new book, Sent to Proclaim the Gospel , seeks to encourage parishes and communities to assume their responsibility for the proclamation of the Gospel. As Pope Francis says, “all the baptized are missionary disciples”. Redemptorists are, therefore, challenged today to arouse in the hearts of all the laity this missionary spirit. The subtitle of the book is Honouring the Legacy of Pope St. Paul Vl . His great Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Nuntiandi is, in the words of Pope Francis, “the most important document published by the Magisterium since the Second Vatican Council”. He is the father of the New Evangelization.
The book is published by the Redemptorist Publications (UK).
