About the book

Theoretical reflections and practical applications for the New Evangelization in Catholic Education: the Catholic school, university and higher education,religious education, chaplaincy, teaching and leadership, social media.

To reclaim the cultural “piazza” the Christian message must be attractive, reasonable and relevant. This volume aims to show how Catholic education can contribute to the new evangelisation in the rapidly evolving cultural landscape of the 21st century.

What is a Catholic culture for today? How should it relate to prevailing cultural trends? How can Catholics engage and evangelise in a way that respects others’ beliefs and values?

This book offers unique insights into how Catholic education can enrich the culture of the pluralist society, it offers ideas and reflections to all who care about Catholic education and culture and who want to share the life-giving content of the Christian message with those at the peripheries of belief, understanding and familiarity with the Christian worldview.

With insights from school and university educators and professional communicators this wide-ranging, up-to-date and practical call for a new engagement between Catholics and representatives of secular culture will have a wide appeal.
