About-

This compilation of twelve essays brings together for the first time the statements of eight eminent Church leaders on the sacraments and the sacramental life of the Church. Each essay is an exemplary piece of theological thought and exposition, beautifully written and complete in itself. Each chapter may be used separately for study; thus, the book can provide material for several years of group study.

The introduction by Canon Landon outlining what a sacrament is sets the background for the comprehensive papers of the eight contributors, who originally prepared this material for the School of Worship of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, New York, during 1956-60.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"...[F]rom birth to death, God ministers to us through the sacramental life of the Church, and in all the crises of life, bids us to turn to him, who is the Lover of our souls, and in knowledge of whom we find our eternal life. The Church comes to each of us with its offer of sacramental life, through which we draw nigh unto God, God draws nigh unto us, and we come to know that his gracious hand is over all his works."
