DESCRIPTION

The book provides a clear account of the sacraments of the Christian Church and of the general idea of sacramentality. It will reach out to a wide audience and present solid academic theology in an accessible and popular manner. The approach is distinctively Anglican, Thomist and on the conservative side of 'liberal catholic'.

Written from seven years of teaching candidates for ministry, this introduction is for Christians of all traditions - for anyone who has ever asked, 'Why sacraments?'

Andrew Davison relates two thousand years of Christian theology on sacramental themes in the clear & engaging manner for which he is now well known as an author & religious journalist. he argues that since Christ stands at the centre of the sacraments, they should be placed firmly at the centre of the Christian life more often than they are today. After all, when Christ left us his interpretation of his Passion ( as the eminent New Testament theologian Tom Wright has written), he did not leave a long explanation in words - he left us a meal.
