9780881410402: Living God: A Catechism for the Christian Faith - Volumes 1 & 2

The Living God is a unique catechetical work for families, inquirers, and adults who are searching for a clear, vivid presentation of the Christian faith. Unlike traditional catechisms containing questions and answers in a rather formal, even scholastic style, this introduction to the basic teachings and life of the Church brings together Scripture, theology, iconography, hymnography, feasts and liturgy in a fully integrated manner. Originally written in French as a "catechism for the family," this English edition, with its warm, personal, holistic approach, will be welcomed by parents, catechists, teachers, pastors, and persons of any age who are looking for a simple way to explain or understand the sources of the Church's revelation. The book is characterized by its unique and creative method of organization: a "seeker" poses the questions, representing those of many believers; and the "sage" answers, articulating the Church's explanation to those questions. The two volumes integrate the major feasts of the liturgical year with an overview of the history of salvation. Volume I contains the period from the Creation through the Resurrection of Christ. Volume II begins with the feast of Ascension continues through the book of Revelation and concludes with the Sacraments of Prayer in the life of the Church. Both volumes are illustrated with musical examples as well as color and monochrome reproductions of icons.

Book Description St Vladimirs Seminary Press October 1989, 1989. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. Many introductions to Orthodox Christianity tend toward presentation in the negative, meaning they begin with differences between East and West and show what Orthodoxy is not. This approach can be advantageous; it allows one to see at-a-glance how the traditions compare, and to have the East 'translated' into the idiom of the West. The Living God, however, attempts a positive presentation of Orthodoxy, in which the Church's own music, poetry and images speak on behalf of the Faith. Originally written in French by Orthodox of various nationalities, this two-part catechism is punctuated with color icons, sheet music, and liturgical texts from the great hymnographers. Volume 1 discusses salvation history from Creation to the Resurrection of Christ. Volume 2 continues with the Ascension through the Second Advent, concluding with Sacraments and Prayer. 'For the Orthodox Tradition,' explains Olivier Clément in the preface, 'there is no difference between the body of the Risen Christ and His eucharistic Body, the Church. The Church becomes a chalice from which flows the power of the Resurrection for the Life of the World.' The Living God allows this timeless 'chalice,' the Orthodox Church, to further nourish today's faithful with its heady fare. 445 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 88634
