Description - From Chaos to Mission by Gerald A. Arbuckle

Building on his original work "Out of Chaos", the author of this text creates a framework for radical thinking and practical action about the critical issue of the formation of religious mission today. Primarily concerned with religious orders and those who join them, this book also discusses wider questions, such as initiation rituals. Since initiation rituals are of critical importance in the life journeys of individuals and groups, the book draws on social anthropology studies of initiation rituals and contemporary biblical studies of rites of passage. The central theme of the book will thus be relevant to educationalists and ritual leaders in the Church and secular society. It contains principles and guidelines for those developing "formation" programmes, and analyzes the nature and requirements of multicultural and international communities.
