Item description for The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality (Reference Works) by Michael Downey...

Overview
The years 1987 and 1990 saw the publication of two unprecedented and immediately popular reference works, The New Dictionary of Theology and The New Dictionary of Sacramental Worship. The present work, The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality, edited by Michael Downey, is intended as a companion to these, with a parallel aim and purpose. The NDCS is a collaborative attempt to take stock of the remarkable developments in the Church and the world since the Second Vatican Council, but with a specific focus on the reform and renewal of Catholic spirituality that the Council set in motion. The dictionary is intended to serve as a reliable theological and pastoral resource, not just for experts, but for all those interested in spirituality: teachers at all levels, writers, preachers, and students.

Reviews - What do customers think about The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality (Reference Works)?

Comprehensive and Well written Guide for all things Catholic  Dec 8, 1999
If you have ever wanted a complete, easy-to-read, and practical explaination of the Catholic faith, this is the book for you.

From Abandonment and Abba to Worship and Zeal it is all here in this one volume. And the most impressive feature is that each article by the more than 150 contributors does not use a bunch of secular terms which defy understanding.

It also covers other major theological thought and actions so that it is suitable for those who want to learn and for those what simply want to brush up.
