This is a well thought out book. Rooted in the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and subsequent popes, Bishop Porteous (an auxiliary bishop in Sydney NSW) explores how throughout the history of our Church different individuals and groups have responded to our core mission of evangelisation. All of these movements have been a response to the stirrings of grace, and have often developed way beyond the initial vision of their founding members. Our own era has included such people as Frank Duff, Jean Vanier, Chiara Lubich, Kiko Arguello, to mention just a few. Lay, religious, and clergy have been inspired to begin what we now call ecclesial movements, of all shapes and size, responding to particular needs and contexts.
