Description

Beginning in New Testament times, there is a time-honoured tradition of forming new Christians in the essentials of faith: catechesis. This volume aims to uncover the riches of this tradition for all who teach and preach the faith today, and well as animate it: St Augustine wrote that joy should be the prime characteristic of those who teach the faith. Six outstanding theologians and historians open up the tradition of catechesis for today's church: * Alister McGrath explores the role of the creeds in catechesis; * Susan Gillingham, Professor of the Hebrew Bible, looks at the Psalms in Christian formation; * Jennifer Strawbridge, Associate Professor of New Testament, reflects on catechesis in the early church; * Carole Harrison, Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity, offers lessons from the patristic period; * Sarah Foot, Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History, draws lessons from the Anglo Saxon missions to Europe; * Simon Jones, Chaplain of Merton College and member of the Liturgical Commission, links formation and liturgy; * Steven Croft shows how this great tradition can be revitalised today.
