Sing a New Song: The Christian Vocation Reviews
Fr. Radcliffe is the former Master of the Order and the book is a collection of his letters and talks with members of the order as he traveled around the world. In the book he talks about he various places where Dominicans are living out their vocation. In particular, he talks about places torn by war such as Rwanda, Iraq, etc, and places where there are still issues of slavery such as parts of Brazil. He discusses concepts of linking the intellectual tradition that goes on in the Houses of Study with the realities which are being lived in those places listed above. Some of the scenes he describes in places where the order has a presence are heartbreaking, some are unbelievable, and some are downright appalling in their brutality and the casual manner in which life is treated.
Outstanding author, inspiring reading
A splendid text of challenging ideas to help all of us, as well as Christians, get real. The style is typical of this delightful author.
