Item description for Teaching As A Sacramental Act by Mary Elizabeth Moore...
Overview Moore asserts that Christian vocation, and the teaching vocation in particular, can be best understood as sacramental, mediating the grace of God through ordinary creation for the sanctification of human life and the well-being of all creation. She develops her argument through three important factors: a historical-theological analysis of the Christian sacraments and sacramentality; a phenomenological study of teaching events; and a description of six sacramental movements and corresponding teaching practices as informed by Jewish-Christian traditions and Eucharistic practices. The nine detailed chapters include: Searching for the Sacred; Sacred Teaching: Education as Sacrament; Expecting the Unexpected; Remembering the Dismembered; Seeking Reversals; Giving Thanks; Nourishing Life; Reconstructing Community and Repairing the World; and Mapping the Future of Sacramental Teaching. Teaching as a Sacramental Act is ideal for students, pastors, Christian educators, spiritual directors, and pastoral caregivers who want to rethink and reshape the teaching ministry of the church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Teaching As A Sacramental Act?
Great book, difficult to read Jul 1, 2009
Mary Ellen M. Moore writes about the sacramental arts, specifically baptism and the eucharist as teaching points to any teaching setting. She illustrates each chapter with a couple of stories that help fill in the explanation. Each part of the book is listed in the appendix with a similar outline. She emphasizes a lot of hermeneutics as styles of sacramental arts. She also emphasizes a lot of feminist viewpoints, probably due to her position. Her emphasis on reversals is the major point of her book. Though not a great book for putting together ideas for constructing a curriculum or a program, it does help in putting into personal perspective how one's own life is a discipline of learning, which should be reversed to the learner.
