Committed worship : a sacramental theology for converting Christians by Donald L Gelpi( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume II develops a sacramental theology that addresses the needs of all adult Christians. The chapters on Marriage show how conversion both humanizes and Christianizes human sexuality, providing the context for a foundational rethinking of the meaning of the context for a foundational rethinking of the meaning of Christian Marriage. The discussion of Orders examines the responsibilities of ordained leaders and throws light on the rise of clericalism and on the meaning of priestly identity and ministry, in addition to clarifying the relationship between the priesthood of the laity and that of the ordained. A discussion of Christian nurture explains the practical and theoretical meaning of infant Baptism. This volume also examines the three sacraments that most foster ongoing conversion: Reconciliation, Anointing and Eucharist. After situating each of these rituals in its Biblical and historical setting, the author shows how each contributes to ongoing Christian conversion

Encountering Jesus Christ : rethinking christological faith and commitment by Donald L Gelpi( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book I argue, in agreement with the great American philsopher of religion Josiah Royce, that Christianity exemplifies a religion in search of a metaphysics, i.e., of an integrated, rational way of talking about God, self, other people, and the world - in other words, about any reality whatever. I also argue that in the past theologians have tried to interpret Christian religious experience with seriously flawed philosophical categories which lead to theological dead ends. In my judgement, dualistic patterns of philosophical thinking have in the past caused the greatest havoc and have brought Christian faith into needless disrepute. Dualistic patterns of thinking conceive two interrelated realities in such a way as to make their relationship to one another subsequently unintelligible. Dualism roots itself in another philosophical fallacy: namely, essentialism. Essentialism fallaciously transforms human cognitive modes of perception into realities which exist apart from thought."--Preface
