The Second Vatican Council (1962 — 1965) Will be remembered not only for what it actually achieved but also for what it made possible in the Church. One of the possibilities that it has opened up is for the emergence of an Indian Christian Church, a Church which is truly Indian and genuinely Christian. In this important book renowned Ecclesiologist, Kurien Kunnumpuram, explores the possible realization of this dream. Drawing on some of the major concerns expressed by the Council, the author deals with four important aspects of the Indian Church of the future: – an incultured Church. – an autonomous Church. – a Church of the people. – a structured Church This book is bound to trigger off a serious discussion among the readers about the future of the Church in India. It will encourage all Christians in this country to envisage an Indian Christian Church and to take concrete steps to facilitate the emergence of such a Church.
