Glimpses of Hope

Vincent Hunt

$20.00

A collection of theological writings by Vincent Hunt, who died recently at the age of 90. He led a remarkable life. His varied career in Aotearoa New Zealand since his arrival from Ireland in 1952, sees him stand out as friend, priest, teacher, formator, philosopher and theologian.

His writings reveal a scholar’s love of his subject, a poet’s love for language, and a pastor’s passion for the care and formation of his people. His students would add, his sense of humour, his teacher’s love of truth and his desire to engage with the contemporary world.

Two themes stand out. First, is his concern to treat every individual as unique, and so not to subsume them into any wider ‘system’. Second, is his passion to keep renewing the Church, and to prepare future priests for this purpose. All those interested in the Church and in what it means to live a human life will enjoy this book.
