The Sacramental Life

Full Product Description

Gregory Dix – Anglican Benedictine monk, scholar, writer and broadcaster – was one of the most engaging public figures of his day. His classic work, The Shape of the Liturgy, has remained in print for 60 years and is an unsurpassed account of the origins of the Eucharist which underpins the work being done today by authors like Richard Giles.

Apart from this magnum opus, Gregory Dix left many pamphlets, papers, sermons, radio talks and other unpublished texts.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
