Concilium is an international theological journal published five times a year in five languages. With its origins in the renewal of Catholic theological thinking following the Second Vatican Council, Concilium draws together a wide range of the best of current leading theological writers from Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa. It is a catholic journal in the widest sense: rooted firmly in the Catholic heritage, open to other Christian tradition and the world's faiths. Each issue of Concilium focuses on a theme of crucial importance and the widest possible concern for our time. Topics include: 'The Foundation of All Ministry: Service to the Poor and Victims in a North-South World' (Jon Sobrino), 'Baptism as the Source for Christian Ministry' (Maria Clara Bingemer), 'The Need for an Integrated Theology of Ministry within Contemporary Catholicism (Paul Murray).
