  • Description

    "The names of the contributors to this timely collection are already eloquent of its excellence. Here is an account of the sacramental mysteries which shows them as at once utterly objective, as manifestations of God's grace, and yet also opportunities for doxology: the human expression of praise, gratitude and obedient service. And this is exactly what the Church needs from sacramental theology at the present time." --Aidan Nichols, OP, Blackfriars, Cambridge "Here we find a generally clear exposition of the classic teaching of Thomas Aquinas that the various sacraments are both means of divine grace and means of our responsive worship, with the movement in each direction passing through Christ the Incarnate Word who instituted them as efficacious signs of his continuing salvific presence. Seeing that all the sacraments have both an individual focus and a communal dimension, study of this book should benefit both the personal and the ecclesial life of thoughtful Christians." --Geoffrey Wainwright, Robert Earl Cushman Professor, Duke University " Rediscovering Aquinas and the Sacraments  is a very attractive collection of essays. The contributors approach St. Thomas's doctrine with contemporary questions in mind, and so offer the reader a fresh perspective on the sacraments in general as well as on each of the seven sacraments. This will be an excellent companion text for courses in sacramental theology." --Sister Sara Butler, M.S.B.T., Professor of Dogmatic Theology
