Communicating Catholicism: Rhetoric, Ecclesial Leadership, by Craig T. Maier

By Craig T. Maier

Fr. Thomas Reese has saw that American Catholic dioceses are at the same time mysterious and necessary to the institutional overall healthiness and energy of yank Catholicism. lately, as American Catholicism more and more unearths itself embroiled in scandal and clash, this mysteriousness has given solution to emotions of suspicion, frustration, or even contempt. How can American dioceses navigate this advanced and sometimes adverse social, cultural, and political environment?

Several many years in the past, J. Michael Sproule invited rhetorical and communique students to target associations to extend our realizing of the profound position advanced enterprises play in modern existence, examine the aim and importance of verbal exchange in pursuit in their missions, and “give a human face to the differently institutional voice of company suasion.” Following Sproule, this booklet defines a brand new box referred to as diocesan institutional rhetoric that strives to rework dioceses from constructions characterised through closure and adversity into websites of hope-full, response-able, Spirit-led opportunity.

Today, rhetorical and conversation concerns emerge in every single place in American Catholicism. Drawing jointly suitable literature in Catholic theology, philosophy of communique, and company conversation scholarship—as good as over twelve years’ adventure operating as a verbal exchange specialist in a diocesan chancery—this e-book is helping diocesan leaders, students, and observers to imagine another way and extra fruitfully in regards to the way forward for American Catholic ecclesial leadership.
