Engaging Our Diversity
By: Maria Cimperman, RSCJ & Roger P. Schroeder, SVD
Leading practitioners, theologians, and psychologists from across the globe engage the essential topic of intercultural life today. They explore key areas needed for communities of consecrated life to engage the gift of diversity in their community life and ministries, emphasizing the necessary motivation, spirituality, and ongoing process of conversion from all forms of ethnocentrism and racism.
