“This Festschrift, which honors Fr. Thomas Malipurathu, is certainly appropriate in its content, since his students have been inspired by – and have expanded on – his interests in Bible, mission, and formation. The book has three parts, which reflect Fr. Thomas’s own biblical and spiritual concerns: 1. God’s Word: Nourishing our Life; 2. God’s Word: Inspiring our Mission; 3. God’s Word: Showing our Way. The articles in part one demonstrate that God’s Word continues to nourish our spiritual life today; the articles in part two specifically point to the link between Bible and mission; the articles in part three remind us of the challenge to live joyfully our call to prophetic witness in our world today.”
