From the Publisher
[A] one of a kind volume that serves to introduce readers to the foundations and implication of the sacramental theology of Louis-Marie Chauvet. . . . This volume achieves this goal admirably and I heartily recommend it to all persons interested in keeping a finger on the pulse of sacramental thinking.
For those who have not been able to devote good, scholarly time to understand Chauvet but have had to grasp him in bits and pieces, Sacraments: Revelation of the Humanity of God is a very welcome book.
With a finger on Chauvet’s six veins of thought—including fundamental theology, ecclesiology, and the theological anthropology of symbolism—the editors corral the additional work of leading thinkers who test Chauvet’s theories in the face of new challenges for the church in the modern world.
Holy Cross Magazine
Besides being a good introduction to Chauvet’s sacramental theology, this volume stretches us beyond our usual liturgical categories to engage us in questions of theological contextualization. Highly recommended for professors and students of sacraments and liturgy.
This is a wonderfully rich volume, inspired by and in conversation with the work of one of the most authentic and creative sacramental theologians of our time. The diverse and interdisciplinary essays, from both sides of the Atlantic, offer a wonderful tribute to the work of Louis-Marie Chauvet and at the same time their own important insights for a theology of sacramental celebrations today.

This splendid volume brings together essays by some of the finest sacramental theologians to analyze and introduce the English-speaking world to the theological achievement of Louis-Marie Chauvet, arguably one of the finest sacramental theologians alive today. As with the work of Chauvet himself, these scholars combine keen insight into fundamental theology with profound knowledge of the liturgical sources. This book will be of great value to a whole generation of students of theology.
