The Sacramental Life
Full Product Description
Apart from this magnum opus, Gregory Dix left many pamphlets, papers, sermons, radio talks and other unpublished texts. From this remarkable archive, Simon Jones has created a text that will be valued in teaching, study, and as devotional reading for a new generation.
Clergy, ordinands and many other readers will welcome this volume. There is at least one institution which requires all students considering theology to read the first 100 pages of The Shape of the Liturgy before applying.
There is a Bibliography and an Index of Names and an Index of Subjects.
Simon Jones is Chaplain and Fellow of Merton College, Oxford - Dix's own college - and an ablate of Elmore Abbey, an Anglican Benedictine community in Newbury, where the Dix archives are held. He wrote the introduction to the 60th anniversary edition of The Shape of Liturgy.
'Here we see most clearly how Dom Gregory brought the immensities of his theological vision to bear on the bread and butter of learning to live Christianly and to pray intelligently.' Rowan Williams
The Sacramental Life by Simon Jones was published by Canterbury Press in September 2007. The ISBN for The Sacramental Life is 9781853117176.

The Sacramental LifeIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
This anthology of Dix’s writings, in the ‘Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology’ series is opportune in that it may help to show the range of his interests: however Dom Gregory does need to be studied in rather more depth to appreciate the subtlety and originality of his thinking. His ‘big green book’, The Shape of the Liturgy is of course his major contribution to the church’s thinking on the religious life (here represented by valuable retreat addresses) and shows what a great deal he had still to offer the church at the moment of his untimely death. This was over fifty years ago, and many would argue that we still need him, and thinkers like him, even now.
