about

This book investigates the role of the laity in the Asian Church. Lay people have three responsibilities: proclaiming the Gospel, be a witness of life, and the triple dialogue with the cultures, the religions, and the poor. Focusing on the triple dialogue, the bishops of Asia have offered fresh ideas to address three global trends in society: the revolution in communications technologies which blurs the cultures; the conflicts between followers of different religions; and the advance of globalisation which leaves in its aftermath the poverty of the masses.
Peter Nguyen Van Hai is an Honorary Fellow of the Australian Catholic University, holds a doctorate in theology, a Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in the PhD Thesis, a Master of Public Administration, and Graduate Diplomas in Computing Studies, Librarianship, and Management Sciences.

Editorial Reviews

«Readers will certainly take away a lot from the reflections on issues of ecclesiology and pastoral ministry dealt with by both Vatican II and the Asian church.»
(Edmund Kee-Fook Chia, The Australasian Catholic Record Vol. 93, No.3/2016)
