Overview

'The richness of the Church's past is a liberation, not a straitjacket. It is a source of confidence in launching into and uncharted future.' Eamon Duffy is both a practising Roman Catholic and distinguished historian, whose writings have changed the course of English Reformation studies. In Faith of Our Fathers, Duffy considers the range of Catholic belief and practice, from prayer for the dead and veneration of the Eucharist, to the place of Mary and the authority of the Pope. In the process he explores the ways in which religious tradition can be a vital Christian resource in the turbulent modern world.



Publishers Description
The thinking person's guide to being a Roman Catholic today. 'The richness of the Church's past is a liberation, not a straitjacket. It is a source of confidence in launching into and uncharted future.' Eamon Duffy is both a practising Roman Catholic and a distinguished historian, whose writings have changed the course of English Reformation studies. In Faith of Our Fathers Duffy brings the insights of history to the intellectual and pastoral challenges confronting Christianity in a post-modern world. In this lively and vivid book he considers the range of Catholic belief and practice, from prayer for the dead and veneration of the eucharist, to the place of Mary or the authority of the Pope. In the process he explores the ways in which the practices of an ancient religious tradition can be a vital Christian resource in the turbulent modern world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Faith Of Our Fathers: Reflections On Catholic Traditions (Continuum Icons)?

just what's needed  Apr 28, 2007
Eamon Duffy's thoughtfully drawn, spacious intelligence makes everything he writes worthwhile. He's a magnificent writer - the prose alone is enough to compel a read. His ideas are firm, but supple and surprising - he's no integrist. His bright touch is just what's needed in the new liturgical movement, however it turns out. Duffy's is an erudition that widens every prospect along the way. This book's a joy to read for all those reasons, and its argument for a once again organic consideration of liturgical orthodoxy is convincing. The chapter on the mass Sacrifice and the liturgical life of that central Sacrament is limpid, even elegant, and breathes a calming fortitude. Heady stuff, and beautiful writing, &ditto the chapter 'Why The Pope?' - Duffy is a historian with a cooly enervating style that positively captivates in strikingly memorable approaches to English prose, all without the least pretension, and with expressive clarity. Faith of Our Fathers is a diamond exposition of the Catholic faith that for many will prove a bellweather of recovered riches.
 
Excellent and Heartfelt Apologia of Traditional Catholicis  Mar 7, 2007
In this book, Duffy presents 19 essays on various important subjects within Roman Catholicism, such as Marian devotion, Purgatory, and the place of the Pope. Duffy explains and argues for the retention and rediscovery of traditional (read: pre-Vatican II) practice and belief, convinicingly but not exhaustively. Duffy's fresh perspective will make the average Progressive Catholic re-evaluate his or her positions on traditional doctrines and practices of the Church.

All in all, I highly recommend this book for any person interested in the Roman Catholic faith, and especially for any Roman Catholic looking for a starting point in (re-)discovering his or her roots.
