Entering the Mysteries of God

Stratford Caldecott (Author)

Stratford Caldecott is the director of the Centre for Faith and Culture in Oxford, England, and the author of All Things Made New, Beauty for Truth’s Sake, and Beauty in the Word.

  1. Seven Sacraments is not an ordinary book considering the subject of Catholic sacramental theology but a meditation on sacred signs and wonders deep within Chirstian experience. The sacraments are not addressed in seven distinct chapters but more as a composite within the larger themes of Christology, Liturgy, Commandments, Covenant and creation. Stratford Caldecott is a proven writer and teacher and the current Director of the Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture in Oxford and editor of the journal Second Spring. Caldecott is both sensitive to religious tradition and to the sensibilities of non-Catholic readers encountering the sacraments for the first time. Seven Sacraments is written in a catechetical style which facilitates group discussion and personal reflection. The text is based on sound scholarship and is accessible to most readers. Each chapter concludes with explanatory notes; clarifying issues encountered within the text and a significant bibliography for additional or supplemental reading. Several online sources are also listed with the requisite web addresses. This title is recommended for all library collections.
