A theology of God’s Word as aiming toward appropriation is discovered in the theology of Deutero-Isaiah and particularly in Isaiah 55:10-11. The work of several Protestant and Catholic homileticians reveals how preaching can be aimed more purposefully at appropriation through a process of 1) encountering God’s Word in the text/sermon; 2) playfully suspending reality to consider possible actions; and 3) appropriating God’s Word as one’s own through hearer-determined confession and ethical behaviour.

The Catholic Church in the United States began in the colonial era, but most of the Spanish and French influences had faded by 1800. The Catholic Church grew through immigration, especially from Europe (Germany and Ireland at first, and in 1890-1914.

Most American Catholics are aware that the spirit of New England's North American settlements was hostile to Catholicism. But few are aware of the vigor and persistence with which that spirit was cultivated throughout the entire colonial period. In the decade before the American Revolution, most inhabitants of the English colonies would have agreed with Samuel Adams when he said (in 1768): "I did verily believe, as I do still, that much more is to be dreaded from the growth of popery in America, than from the Stamp Act, or any other acts destructive of civil rights.

Wonderful book. A classic. Answers a lot of questions. Very practical.

Probably one of the most penetrating studies of human nature at its fullest, published under disguise as a "Theology" directed at American "Catholics". As a Christian, and ecumenical in my own beliefs, but not raised as a Roman Catholic, I feel it is essential to find all the common ground possible among the Christian fellowships, especially at this time when the Christian Faith is under assault across the globe, both by fundamentalists of other faiths, and by atheist and materialist secularists within our own culture. Professor Westley, who died just over a year ago, in this work from 1988 took on the difficult issues of Faith divided and under assault by advancing a powerful case for God's "presence", and in turn, for our own presence to one another as incarnate spiritual beings. A life changing read.
