The talk "Entering the Door of Faith" was given by Steve Bevans, S.V.D, on January 26, 2013 on the occasion of the annual alumni reunion of Catholics on Call, a CTU program of discernment for young adults contemplating a life of ministry in the church.

Why do Jews and Christians imagine different concepts when the new theologies speak of opening up the Trinity to Israel's covenant? Rabbi Brill will explore the question of how the two religions think differently about theology. He will seek to steer the discussion beyond attempting to create sameness or difference and will outline the changes on both sides from perceiving differences between the faiths to perceiving commonality. But then ask: how much are these new theologies still operating on Christian terms?

Reconciliation has become a much-discussed and much sought-after hope in many parts of our lives today--within our families, our Church, and in the wider society. The word 'reconciliation' has come to be used in many different ways and to mean many different things. In this Sundays At CTU, we look at the Christian understanding of reconciliation in its biblical roots and how it has come to be understood today, as it is applied to both personal and social situations.
