David Goa focuses on deepening the capacity of the faithful to think through the gifts of the Christian tradition: the spiritual life, the theological traditions, and our responsibility to the public world. Four themes are at the centre of his concern: the Incarnation, the Trinity, the spiritual life as a journey toward wholeness, and the meaning of Ecclesia in service to the life of the world. A deeper understanding of these revelatory gifts, and the depth of the tradition of understanding through which they emerge, will enlarge and strengthen the capacity of the faithful in their personal lives, engage with the life of the church in the world, and discern how the faithful may engage the public square about the most important issues of our time.
