About the Author:

Anthony J. Gittins, CSSp, is a member of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit (Spiritans) and currently holds the Bishop F.X. Ford M.M. Chair of Missiology at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago. He is an anthropologist working in theological education and ministry. His recent books include Reading The Clouds: Mission Spirituality for New Times (Liguori, MO, 1999), A Presence That Disturbs: A Call To Radical Christian Living (Liguori, MO, 2002), and Ministry On the Margins: Spirituality and Strategy for Mission (Orbis, NY, 2002).

Review:

Probes many of the fundamental questions about the aims and methods of Christian mission.... What Gittins brings distinctively to bear on these questions is the discipline of anthropology, a depth of personal spirituality, and years of engagement and friendship with peoples of other cultures and faiths."

-- Margaret F. Loftus, SND Executive Director, U.S. Catholic Mission Association Washington, DC

Bread for the Journey is what many of today's missionaries long for. It is an honest assessment of the complex situations of mission as we approach the third millennium.... Gittins brings critical, disciplined thinking to bear on many areas of tension.... This is a book on mission today and in the coming years which I heartily recommend to missionaries of all Christian churches."

-- William Jenkinson, C.S.Sp. Executive Director, SEDOS, Rome, Italy

Inculturation is a Gospel imperative...a slow process whereby, through dialogue, cultures and evangelizers are transformed. It is risky, as all creative change must be. Gittins develops these points with consummate skill.... His case study analyses are superb. I finished Bread for the Journey excited - even inspired - by his insights."

-- Gerald A. Arbuckle, SM Refounding and Pastoral Development Unity Sydney, Australia
