Product Description

The years 1987 and 1990 saw the publication of two unprecedented and immediately popular reference works, The New Dictionary of Theology and The New Dictionary of Sacramental Worship. The present work, The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality, edited by Michael Downey, is intended as a companion to these, with a parallel aim and purpose. The NDCS is a collaborative attempt to take stock of the remarkable developments in the Church and the world since the Second Vatican Council, but with a specific focus on the reform and renewal of Catholic spirituality that the Council set in motion. The dictionary is intended to serve as a reliable theological and pastoral resource, not just for experts, but for all those interested in spirituality: teachers at all levels, writers, preachers, and students. In addition to the over 500 entries, the dictionary includes alphabetical and topical indices, cross-referencing, and running heads all in a durable binding.

Editorial Reviews

This reliable, informative work is destined to become a classic.

Bernard Treacy, OP, Editor, Doctrine and Life

The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality is a project long overdue. It is in effect the answer of the [English-speaking] church to the great Dictionnaire de Spiritualité.
Terrence G. Kardong, OSB, Editor, The American Benedictine Review

An indispensable guide to the spiritual journey.
Robert M. Hamma, Spiritual Book Associates

The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality signals our arrival on a plateau from which we may glimpse a horizon in which spirituality will be a key component in articulating a new theological vision for the century ahead.
Lawrence S. Cunningham, University of Notre Dame

. . . practical and pastoral, without compromising the requirements of good scholarship. This is a book for reading, referring, for reaching out to all those concerned with the role of spirituality in the life of the Church.
Bernard McGinn, The Divinity School, The University of Chicago

. . . an excellent summary of spiritual development in the last twenty-five years.
Robert F. Morneau, Auxiliary Bishop of Green Bay

The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality will become a standard reference work in the field."
Sandra M. Schneiders, IHM, The Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley

. . . a work as interesting and informative as this would be just as useful in an individual's bookcase, whether for reference or browsing.
Grapevine
