The Gospel Without Compromise Author:Catherine de Hueck Doherty Over forty years ago, when Catherine de Hueck Doherty decided to give her life to God through serving the poor and suffering, it soon became clear to her that this would mean really living the Gospel Without Compromise. "The Good New," she says, "is God's love for us, and his one great commandment is to love. If we are living that commandment ... more »and not just rendering lip service to it, we shall change the face of economics, politics, technology, and anything else that needs to be changed."
She is convinced, also, that man's hunger for God is at its greatest in these troublesome times, though Christians do not know how to satisfy that hunger. Her answer is to focus on the Church -- especially the second Vatican Council. "The Council," she writes, "called all Christians to preach the gospel to men everywhere... with their lives." Mrs. Doherty spells out the gospel message in terms of faith, the Church as community, poverty, love, prayer, and the gifts and virtues of modern-day Christians. She elaborates on each of these, drawing on her own experience of the Christian life as spent in ministering to the poor and lonely.
Every age has its prophets -- those whom God chooses to speak for him. They burn with a transforming fire, and seem empowered to proclaim a God-given, single-minded message to men. Catherine de Hueck Doherty's life and work, as expressed in this book, proclaim such a message to our own time.« less
