Sacraments: A New Understanding for a New Generation
Publication Date 1 Jan 1999
OverviewFor a new generation of believers wondering about the meaning of the sacraments, here's a text that offers some clear and concrete explanations and answers. Ray Noll brings together the theology, history, and pastoral practice of the sacraments in a very readable, student-friendly book that is ideal for an introductory course on the sacraments. An important and distinctive element is the inclusion of a CD-ROM containing a series of articles and passages by some of the recognised theologians who have played a major role in reflecting on sacramental theology in our age. In addition, each chapter of the text is self-contained, and includes thought-provoking questions both for revidw and further discussion; suggestions for projects and for further reading; and a glossary with key terms. Appealing in its presentation and firmly based on the Church's living tradition and the best of contemporary scholarship, Sacraments, a New Understanding will engage adults who want to deepen their faith knowledge of the sacraments and their place in the life of the church. Excellent for introductory college courses, adult education, and parish and high school resource libraries.
