From the Editor

As we bask in the light of the Risen Lord during this Easter season, it is timely to reflect on the joy of the Gospel, or more precisely the apostolic exhortation from Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium. This document was a clarion call to the Church to undergo a pastoral conversion, to become a truly missionary Church. We have four international contributions: Gerald Whelan from the Gregorian University in Rome; well-known missiologist and author Steven Bevans; Nigerian theologian, now working at Marquette University, Joseph Ogbonnaya; and the widely respected ecumenical theologian Catherine Clifford. May these rich reflections contribute to your Easter joy.
