Description - The New Creation by Herbert McCabe
A reissue of McCabe's study of the sacraments and what it means to live in the Church and the Church's world, "The New Creation" explores how human beings can reach real unity with one another and the world around them through the Spirit of Christ. "The New Creation" engages with themes like the Word of God, the Son of God, the meaning of community and communion and the sacraments as mysteries of human unity; the place of physical healing in the redeemed world and the Old-Testament and pagan religious foundations upon which modern Christianity is built. There is a humane simplicity in McCabe's insights into all of these subjects, similar to that found in the Gospels, which provides the reader with clarity on inherently complex theological issues. 'Christ is present to us in so far as we are present to each other' as McCabe tells us and this book plainly and vividly encourages us to find the company of both.
