Evangelization In the Modern World Evangelii Nuntiandi
Evangelii Nuntiandi. Promulgated by Pope Paul VI on December 8, 1975, ten years to the day from the closing of the Second Vatican Council and just a little more than a year after the 1974 Synod of Bishops on the theme of evangelization in the modern world. Evangelization in the Modern World represents a breakthrough in mission theology for the modern world and the Church. An introduction on the commitment to evangelization as the Church's primary service is followed by seven sections which cover the connection between Christ the evangelizer and a Church which, by Christ's mandate, is evangelizing by definition; the content of evangelization in all its breadth; the methods of evangelization; the beneficiaries of evangelization; those who carry out the ministry of evangelization; the spirit of evangelization; Mary as the Star of Evangelization.
This has been for the last 30 years the foundational document for anyone in the ministry of evangelization. Perfect for personal reflection and renewal as well as discussion groups.
