About this title

Synopsis:

A work of major importance, written for an ecumenical audience, Doors to the Sacred is a sweeping and detailed account of the historical and cultural evolution of sacramental rituals and practices.

Since its initial publication, the book has garnered widespread critical acclaim and has become a mainstay not only for students but for all thinking Christians who want to understand the past fully while making their present participation in the sacraments more genuine and intelligent. Martos has greatly expanded all of the bibliographic material and has incorporated the latest developments in theological study and inquiry. His focus is on the seven ecclesial sacraments of the Catholic Church: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Anointing, Marriage, and Orders.

Though based on thorough research and impressive scholarship, Doors to the Sacred is written in a lively style that will be welcomed by a general audience.

About the Author:

Joseph Martos is a respected educator, speaker, author and authority on the interaction of religious experience, theological ideas, cultural developments and liturgical ritual down through the ages. His work is interdisciplinary, accessible, and takes a balanced approach. His website, www.TheSacraments.org, contains biographical and contact information, as well as significant material on these and related topics.
