Item description for The Presence of Transcendence Thinking 'Sacrament' in a Postmodern Age (Annua Nuntia Lovaniensia) by L. Boeve...
In the postmodern age the question of the way in which we 'think sacrament' has acquired particular prominence, not least because it touches the core of all theology. Sacrament cannot be reduced to metaphysical concepts. It is, instead, 'enfleshment', the incarnation of transcendence in a way that moves us in an unparalleled way. The problem of 'sacramental presence', and what it reveals about the Christian understanding of God, the world, and the believing subject, is the subject of this volume. The book is divided into four parts: (1) 'Approaching Sacrament in a Postmodern Age: Questions of Method', (2) 'Yesterday Revisited: Recovering the Past in the Face of the Challenges of the Postmodern Age', (3) 'Today's Imperative: Uncovering the Transformative Power of Sacrament in a Postmodern Age', and (4) 'Tomorrow's Possibilities: Discovering New Loci of Sacramental Presence in a Postmodern Age' (Peeters 2001)
