9780814648087: Building Bridges, Not Walls - Construyamos puentes, no muros: Nourishing Diverse Cultures in Faith – Alimentar a las diversas culturas en la fe (English and Spanish Edition)

Are you a leader, clergy or lay, in a Catholic parish wrestling with how to bridge the multiple ethnic, linguistic, and racial communities that increasingly comprise your parish? With these cultural backgrounds frequently come diverse perspectives on everything from how to communicate with each other to how to understand God. In addition, such cultural divisions all too often manifest differences in the access these communities have to parish decision-making structures.
In Building Bridges, Not Walls - Construyamos puentes, no muros, John Francis Burke highlights the dramatic impact the growing Latino presence is having in parishes across the country, considers the theology of inculturation and intercultural ministry, and provides practical pastoral ministry suggestions on doing intercultural ministry. Includes full text in both English and Spanish.

¿Eres un líder, clérigo o laico que trabaja en una parroquia católica y que lucha todos los días por llegar a las diversas comunidades étnicas, lingüísticas y raciales cada vez más presentes en su parroquia? Estos grupos poseen como parte de su cultura diversas formas de ser y de pensar, desde cómo comunicarse con los demás hasta la misma concepción de Dios. Además, esas diferencias culturales a menudo implican una mayor o menor posibilidad de acceder a las estructuras de gobierno dentro de la parroquia.
En Construyamos puentes, no muros – Building Bridges, Not Walls, John Francis Burke muestra el impacto tan grande que los latinos están teniendo en las parroquias del país; explica la teología de la inculturación y del ministerio intercultural; y ofrece sugerencias prácticas para quienes trabajan en este último. Incluye texto complete en Inglés y Español.

Review:

Anyone who is involved in pastoral ministry in today's Church will find rich material and inspiration in Dr. Burke's reflections which integrate his rich pastoral experiences, theoretical insights and practical models related to engaging Catholics of many cultures in living as one Body of Christ and People of God.Rev. Donald S. Nesti, CSSp, Director, Center for Faith and Culture, University of St. Thomas, Houston, Texas

John Francis Burke fuses the sober insight of a political scientist with the heart of a pastoralist. I highly recommend Building Bridges. Burke recognizes that there is no panacea or simple solution for fostering communication and the exchange of spiritual gifts in intercultural communities. The practical wisdom he imparts in the last two chapters is refreshingly concise and to the point. I fervently wish that we could put this book in the hands of every pastoral agent in the United States.Peter Casarella, University of Notre Dame

John Francis Burke has written a must-read for Catholic ministers and pastoral leaders. Burke examines the growing multicultural realities of US Catholic parish life, giving readers theological and social science resources for thinking about diversity as well as practical suggestions for multicultural parishes. Readers will appreciate the dual Spanish-English edition and the scenarios opening each chapter. Although Burke reflects most on the US Latino contribution to US Catholicism, he maintains a broad yet deeply researched perspective that it will be helpful for any shared parish context. The book is most pertinent to Catholic contexts but will be interesting to any reader concerned with diversity and ministry.Tracy Sayuki Tiemeier, Associate Professor of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University (Los Angeles)

In Building Bridges, Not Walls - Construyamos puentes, no muros, Dr. John Francis Burke successfully tackles the age-old question "How can many be one?" In his bilingual book, Dr. Burke delivers invaluable insight into ways the church is able to embrace the challenges of inter-cultural ministry. This book is a gift to the church in North America.+Ricardo Ramirez, CSB, Bishop Emeritus of Las Cruces

With this book John Burke offers the U.S. Catholic church a gift of inestimable value. Burke brings together the rigorous training of a political scientist, the theological insight of one who spent a lifetime immersed in the Catholic theological tradition, and decades of pastoral experience. The fruit is a practical, bilingual guide that can assist church ministers and parishioners in transforming parishes comprised of isolated sub-cultures into flourishing parishes that celebrate the rich catholicity of our church.Richard Gaillardetz, Joseph Professor of Catholic Systematic Theology, Boston College

“Exceptionally well written, organized, and presented, the inspired and inspiring text is presented in both English and Spanish, making it an ideal and highly recommended addition to personal, church, community, and academic reference reading lists.”
The Midwest Book Review



The principles, histories, obstacles, and strategies Burke details provide hope that the Church can minister constructively within the spiritual wealth that is all God's people.Liguorian

As someone with extensive experience as a lay liturgical leader in various Catholic congregations, Dr. Burke defies the stereotype of the scholar in an ivory tower. This book is packed with socio-cultural and power-relationship theories and suggested changes in perspective and practical strategies. To be sure, Burke's valuable insights are very useful for all involved in ministry, clerical or lay, but because the author brings a strong academic understanding, including concepts from Latino theology, to a real world setting, esta libro es para todo mundo (this little book is for everyone).Gilberto M. Hinojosa, Catholic Southwest, A Journal of History and Culture
