Sacraments And Justice


Sacraments and Justice offers a fresh approach to the seven sacraments in the Roman Catholic tradition. The authors assembled here, each of them highly regarded sacramental and liturgical theologians, synthesize the best creative thinking in the theology of sacraments, their symbols, their link with justice-God’s order for the world here and now-and their power to permeate another reality so intensely that something new happens.

Educated Catholics, or Catholics looking for a first-rate education on the sacraments, as well as parish teams, study groups, and Catholic educators, will cheer this volume as solid and incisive, while at the same time accessible and engaging. Each contributor is an academic who writes with a human touch about the gracious promise embedded in sacraments. They include:
*John Baldovin, SJ, on baptism
*Edward Hahnenberg on confirmation
*Michael Driscoll on Eucharist
*Doris Donnelly on penance
*Thomas Scirghi, SJ, on holy orders
*Natalie Weaver on marriage
*Paul Turner on anointing of the sick
