Good book for the catechumen today. The better educated can find better. It was a great class on the sacraments. I enjoyed Father Mick and learned a lot about the history of the sacraments. One person found this helpful. Father Mick wrote this book to help people better understand the sacraments individually and in terms of eight common characteristics. Fundamentally, he explains, all sacraments are (1) human activities, (2) ritual actions composed of symbols, (3) clarified by the word of God, (4) communal actions, (5) actions of Christ, (6) expressions of faith, (7) part of a larger process, and (8) formation for mission. Mick puts the core parts of our faith into their historical and theological context and illuminates the . Mick puts the core parts of our faith into their historical and theological context and illuminates the ways the Sacraments bring us together as God?s people. Scholarly and readable, the chapters take a sacrament each, and each builds the case for its importance and spirituality.

Mick, a priest in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, is a liturgical consultant and writer whose numerous books include Understanding the Sacraments Today and Living Baptism Daly (both published by Liturgical Press). Sacramental preparation is essential if we are to experience the fullness of our life in community and in Christ. Ever conscious of the complex history of the church and its dynamic relationship to ritual, Father Lawrence Mick gives us these booklets 'based on individual chapters of his popular Understanding the Sacraments Today 'as a companion to the ongoing and repeated practices that nourish us. Mick is a priest in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. He has served several parishes as a pastor and associate pastor and assisted with campus ministry, retreat ministry, and activities at the Archdiocesan Worship Office. Currently, he is a consultant and writer. He is the author of To Live As We Worship, Understanding the Sacraments Today, Penance: The Once and Future Sacrament, RCIA: Renewing the Church as an Initiating Assembly, Worshiping Well: A Mass Guide for Planners and Participants, and Liturgy and Ecology in Dialogue published by Liturgical Press.

Sacraments are at the heart of our lives as Catholics, the way we celebrate together our continuing conversion and encounter with God.

The overwhelming positive response to Father Mick's leaflets explaining the sacraments prompted the publication of this book, which gathers the material from those leaflets and rounds it into a comprehensive whole easily understood by an average member of the faith community. Although he presents more detail in this book than was possible in the leaflet series, Father Mick follows the same format, beginning with a short historical review, moving on to an examination of the present rite, and concluding with suggestions for possible future revisions in the form of the sacraments. Classes or study groups will find the questions at the end of each chapter extremely helpful. This book is a useful text for high school, college, and adult education classes.

As a lay minister candidate, this book explained both the history and at time the future of each of the Church’s seven sacraments. It helped me better worship together with the community, and evangelize as we go out into the community.
CopamHuk
Basic overview of the Sacraments with a focus on how Vatican II has refocused the Sacraments for today. Weak in liturgical texts and historical detail. Sometimes repetitious and sometimes editorial. Good book for the catechumen today. The better educated can find better.
