Christian sacraments and Christian personality by Bernard J Cooke( Book )

13 editions published between 1961 and 1968 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book does not pretend to give a complete explanation, either historical or systematic, of the Christian sacramental system. No treatment is given to the sacrament of Anointing, and there is only a limited treatment of such important sacraments as Penance and Matrimony. Instead, the book tries to explain the basic structure of Christian sacramental living, to show its connection with the mysteries of Christian priesthood and sanctifying grace. The objective is not to provide a detailed understanding of all the aspects of sacrament but rather to explain the function of sacraments in the actual living of Christianity and in the development of the Christian person." [Preface]

Christian symbol and ritual : an introduction by Bernard J Cooke( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Christian Symbol and Ritual, Bernard Cooke and Gary Macy offer an accessible and engaging introduction to the topic, written from a nondenominational perspective. Cooke and Macy demonstrate that celebration, ritual, and symbol are already central to our lives, even though most do not see their actions as symbolic or ritualistic. They connect central Christian symbols to the symbols and rituals already present in everyday life and place Christian theology in a familar context. After discussing the characteristics and functions of rituals, they explore different kinds of ritual, including those of friendship, worship, and healing. The authors also examine such questions as how rituals establish and maintain power relationships, how "official" rituals are different from "popular" Christian rituals and devotions, and how Christian rituals function in the process of human salvation. Christian Symbol and Ritual is an invaluable resource for students, teachers, and lay readers
A history of women and ordination by John Hilary Martin( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first volume contains two studies, the first by Gary Macy and the other by Fr. John Hilary Martin. Macy provides the background to the earliest understanding of "ordination" and discusses some of the controversy surrounding the change in the definition of the term in the 12th century. Until that time "ordination" meant, "installed," as a king was said to be ordained when he was crowned king; a deacon was ordained into the diaconate and so was a deaconess. Then the theologians and canonists of the period insisted that the only "true" ordination was to those roles that served at the altar, and that, furthermore, only men could serve in those roles. This discussion sets the stage for Fr. Hilary's detailed study of the continuing concern of theologians through the next 300 years with the question of why women could not be ordained. He presents a wide array of sources that evidence the concern of scholars over the justification of this practice of exclusion. Both studies offer a wealth of hitherto unavailable informat

Ecumenism and Vatican II by Charles A O'Neill( Book )

2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection developed out of a group of lectures originally delivered at Fordham University in the Fall of 1963. Some of these lectures have been combined here with little known but important essays bearing on ecumenism and the work of Vatican II. The present book is an important contribution to the on-going dialogue between Catholics and their separated brethren on the meaning of Christian unity and the obstacles in its path. The essays focus attention on the task of ecumenicity, the need for renewing the Church and for displaying it as the sacrament of Christ, the temple of the living God

Power and the spirit of God : toward an experience-based pneumatology by Bernard J Cooke( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Roman Catholic theologian Bernard Cooke reassesses the long-standing Christian description of divine power. The word power evokes the spheres of economic, political, and social life. Cooke suggests, however, that the deepest questions about conflicting powers are theological and concern what Christians have traditionally referred to as "the Holy Spirit" and "salvation." He believes that the twentieth-century reappraisal of the theological view of power may represent the most radical paradigm shift to touch Christianity in eighteen hundred years."--Jacket
