Part personal memoir and part reflection on the challenges that face the Church in the contemporary world. A vision for the future of the Church marked by joy, hope and integrity. Cormac Murphy-O'Connor's first book as Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster is part personal memoir and part reflection on the challenges that face the Church in the contemporary world. He looks back with affection and wry humour at his own personal faith journey, with its Irish Catholic roots, English upbringing, and training for the priesthood in Rome. He considers questions of authority and leadership in the church, shares his passionate commitment to the search for Christian unity, and urges the renewal of parish life through the small communities which, he believes, `are the secret of the future'. A unique vision for the future of the church and its role in the revitalisation of society emerges, marked by joy and hope as well as realism, integrity and humility.
