The Sacrament of Reconciliation
Full Product Description
Here, Father Coffey identifies what the main theological cause is at the heart of the present crisis, namely, a serious and widespread confusion about the nature of sin. Chapter two focuses on the Church's ministry of reconciliation. This chapter provides both essential knowledge and a response to the widely held view that one does not need to turn to the Church in order to obtain forgiveness from God for sin. Chapter three examines the four parts of the sacrament: contrition, confession, absolution, and the prescribed work of penance. The investigation in this chapter suggests theological limits to possible future reforms of the sacrament. In chapter four Father Coffey offers a detailed examination of the three sacramental rites and the no sacramental service set down by The Rite of Penance. Finally, in chapter five, Father Coffey offers some predictions about the future of the sacrament, based on his study. Chapters are *A Theology of Sin, - *The Church's Ministry of Reconciliation, - *The Parts of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, - *The Rites of Reconciliation, - and *Prognostications. - David M. Coffey is a priest of the Archdiocese of Sydney, Australia.
He holds the William J. Kelly, S.J., Chair of Catholic Theology at Marquette University. He has published numerous articles in theological journals and several books."
