Priest and layman by Albert Dondeyne( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Church has come a long way in the last hundred years. Few things are more striking than the awakening of her laity which is as yet still in its early stages, yet is initiating revolutionary changes of attitude already, and gathering momentum every day. This short but penetrating book offers sharp insights into the exciting possibilities of this situation. In particular, it suggests how the whole hierarchic aspect of the Church's structure is complemented by a fraternal relationship between clergy and laity, in which the laity exists not as a subject race who may be permitted to assist the clergy in running the Church, but as part of a team created by mutual service
The Eucharist by Edward Schillebeeckx( Book )

5 editions published between 1968 and 1977 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does it mean to say that Christ is really present in the Eucharist? Catholic teaching since Trent has presented this belief in terms of the transubstantiation of bread and wine, but how far is it meaningful for us? Can we not find more meaning in terms like transignification and transfinalisation? The author argues that, since the Eucharist is first and foremost a personal communication of Christ to his Church, we must indeed talk of a change in the meaning and purpose of the bread and wine. But transubstantiation does say something more than this, inasmuch as the change in question here is one initiated by the word of Christ himself, and is therefore much more than a merely human action. This book, the author insists, is not a comprehensive treatment of the mystery of the Eucharist, but it is nevertheless a brilliant summary of an important element in it, and also raises the wider question of the nature of reality for man and what is distinctive in the Christian's understanding of it."

World and church by Edward Schillebeeckx( Book )

6 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World and Church deals with the conflict between religiosity and life in the world. Deliberately, Schillebeeckx turns around the order of the words in the idiom ''church and world'', thereby stressing the embedding of faith and church life in particular contexts. In the first three chapters he reflects on this tension as he experienced it in burgeoning existentialism and debates between Catholics and Marxists in those turbulent years in Paris, where he was living immediately after World War II. It includes thoughts on pastoral work among the working class and the then popular pretres-ouvriers
The understanding of faith: interpretation and criticism by Edward Schillebeeckx( Book )

3 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Understanding of Faith (1974) is certainly Schillebeeckx''s most incisive English publication on theological hermeneutics. It contains his principal ideas on this subject, in which he progressively evolved the hermeneutic thinking that he was to apply in due course in his famous Jesus books. The book centres on two issues: how should the Christian message of God''s kingdom be read in our day and age, and can a present-day interpretation of that message still be considered Christian? In short, what are the possibilities and limits of the understanding of faith in our modern age? Of course
Routledge philosophy guidebook to Plato and the trial of Socrates by Thomas C Brickhouse( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Socrates is one of the most influential philosophers in western civilisation, and Plato his most famous pupil. The Euthyphro, Apology of Socrates, Crito and the death scene from the Phaedo are Plato's account of Socrates' trial and execution, and together they provide the most important depiction of Socrates' ideas. In this GuideBook, Brickhouse and Smith provide clear explanations of these texts for students coming to them for the first time. Situating the works in their historical context, the authors carefully go through each text, exploring the philosophical issues raised in an accessible way. Plato and the Trial of Socrates is the ideal introduction to both the ideas of Socrates and the work of Plato
