FR. LONGENECKER discusses JOHN L. ALLEN JR’s The Future Church
My podcast Triumphs and Tragedies is a twenty-three part series on the history of the Catholic Church. I produced this series so folks could get an overview of church history. If they are worried about the state of the Catholic Church today, I hoped they would realize that some of the problems we face are nothing new. In fact the church has struggled with corruption from within and persecution from without in every age.
If that was the past, what does the future look like? I think John Allen’s book provides and excellent, objective look at ten trends that are shaping the twenty first century church. God has not forsaken his church and I think we’re moving into an exciting stage of church history. I hope you will enjoy listening.
