Product Description

H. Vorgrimler offers us a view of the Christian sacraments, which takes into account contemporary understanding of symbols, of the history of the sacraments, of the positions formulated by Vatican II. He is careful to preserve tradition, on the one hand, but opens the reader to new insights of sacramental thought as well. Throughout the book Vorgrimler attempts to span these two sides of current Roman Catholic sacramental theology and liturgy. He not only speaks about sacramental liturgical life in general terms, but offers the reader a brief synopsis of each of the seven sacraments as well. Herbert Vorgrimler is a theologian, professor, and dean in Munster, Germany.

Publisher's Description

Both resistance to and renewed interest in the sacraments mark current theological thought. This work acknowledges human limitations of the sacraments but stresses that God's relationship to human beings cannot be other than sacramental." Sacramental structures and events constitute salvation history, and thus permeate all theology. What makes this sacramental view comprehensible is faith; faith is an indispensable precondition for a sacramental theology.

Therefore, the author first demonstrates the preconditions of faith on which sacramental theology rests, and what place it holds within the whole of theology. Following this, he briefly presents the concept of sacraments and the history of that concept, the teachings of Church tradition on sacraments in general, and the basic features of a sacramental theology. Next, he explains from a theological perspective the traditional sacraments of the Catholic Church, including related topics such as indulgences and sacramentals.
