About-

All the basic documents describing the Catholic Common Ground Inititative are here gathered together in one volume, from the original statement "Called To Be Catholic: Church in a Time of Peril" to Archbishop Lipscomb's address at the first Catholic Common Ground Initiative conference in March, 1997. In a very useful introduction, Msgr. Philip J. Murnion explains the history and development of the initiative.

"American Catholics must reconstitute the conditions for addressing our differences contructively - a common ground centered on faith in Jesus, marked by accountability to the living Catholic tradition, and ruled by a renewed spirit of civility, dialogue, generosity, and broad and serious consultation."
-from "Called To Be Catholic: Church in a Time of Peril"
