'Fr Liam Kelly's engaging and comprehensive book gives adults the opportunity to reflect on the sacraments as 'the masterworks of God'. Adults engaged in the teaching ministry of the Church will find Sacraments Revisited a great help to aid their own understanding. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wishes to deepen their faith and their understanding of how, in the celebration and living of the sacraments, God invites us to step further into the mystery and fullness of life.' Fr Andrew J Faley National Adviser for Catechesis and Religious Education In Sacraments Revisited, Liam Kelly takes each of the seven sacraments in turn – Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Matrimony, Holy Orders and the Sacrament of the Sick – and explores their fascinating history, how each sacrament came about and how they have developed within the life of the Church. Throughout each chapter, he poses a series of questions to help us 'revisit' our own experiences, and to explore the richness which lies within the celebration of each sacrament. As well as being an invaluable resource for personal reflection, Sacraments Revisited is ideal for catechists and those involved in adult education, and for use in parishes and in RCIA groups. It will help all of us to look afresh at those special occasions in our lives, which we may too easily take for granted, and help us towards a deeper faith. 'This book gives a full account of the sacraments of the Church and does so in a manner which is accessible and inviting. It will be extremely helpful to catechists and those who make themselves available for the work of bringing others to the sacraments.' - Bishop Vincent Nichols, in the foreword.
