Being One at Home: Interchurch Families as Domestic Churches

Taking seriously Pope John Paul II's statement that ''[t]he Christian family constitutes a specific revelation and realization of ecclesial communion, and for this reason too it can and should be called `the domestic Church''', this book explores the lived reality of the Domestic Church from the perspective of that subset known as interchurch families. Approaching the issue both experientially and theologically, it delves into what these families reveal and realize of communion, extrapolating the findings to show what they have to say to the Church. In the process, this book gives evidence that interchurch families, far from being a problem, form a gift to their churches for the unity of the Church.
