Book Description A passionate exploration of the future not only of religious life, but of the church.—Timothy Radcliffe, OP
The most forward-looking presentation of emerging developments in religious life that we've seen in a long time! O’Murchu's honesty, openness and acumen are a real gift to the religious now when the temptation to settle down is too much with us. His book has the capacity to open every dimension of religious life to new analysis and new energy. My hope is that it will become a formation piece in every community in the country.—Joan Chittister, OSB, author The Way We Were
Diarmuid O'Murchu re-imagines consecrated religious life as a process of birth-death-rebirth. He paints a positive picture for the future that will be different from that of the past but with the power to transform itself and flourish into the next century as something just as fresh and as daring as the founders' visions.
Diarmuid O'Murchu, MSC, has been a member of the Sacred Heart Missionary Congregation for the past thirty years. A priest and social psychologist, he has worked with religious congregations in five continents. His seminal works include Reframing Religious Life, Vows for Non-Violence, Quantum Theology, and Evolutionary Faith.
