From Age to Age

2009 Catholic Press Association Award Winner! From age to age you gather a people to yourself, so that from east to west a perfect offering may be made to the glory of your name." Eucharist is the fullest expression of our life with God, a life we share with Christians throughout the ages. It is also a sensory experience, engaging us in the sights and sounds, tastes and touch of the worship. Edward Foley's revised and expanded From Age to Age draws readers into that sensory experience. He traces the development of Christian Eucharist from its Jewish roots to our own time. In addition to exploring the architecture, music, books, and vessels that contributed to each period's liturgical express...

A Lyrical Vision

The publication of the US Bishops' document on music in the liturgy, Sing to the Lord (2007), has prompted Edward Foley to review the overall contribution of the Bishops to liturgical music since Vatican Council II. He explores the history and content of the US Bishops’ three previous statements on music in worship: The Place of Music in Eucharistic Celebrations Music in Catholic Worship Liturgical Music Today In tracing this history, Foley illuminates the stages that led to Sing to the Lord and compares this most fully developed document with its predecessors. This concise history and analysis—illustrated with sets of comparative tables—will be a valuable resource for those who study, prepare, and lead music in Catholic worship in the United States. Edward Foley, Capuchin, PhD, is Professor of Liturgy and Music, and founding Director of the Ecumenical Doctor of Ministry Program at Catholic Theological Union. He is author of From Age to Age: How Christians Have Celebrated the Eucharist (revised and expanded edition, Liturgical Press, 2008) and is coeditor of and contributor to A Commentary on the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (Liturgical Press, 2008).

Religion, Diversity and Conflict

While religion can be a source of healing, peace, and reconciliation, it can also be a trigger, if not an underlying cause, for conflict between peoples of varying beliefs. With that awareness, the International Academy of Practical Theology convened its 2007 meeting around the theme of "Religion, Diversity, and Conflict." From the multiple seminars, lectures, and studies presented at that meeting, a selection was chosen for this book. Representing contributions from four continents, and drawing upon perspectives from African traditional religions, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, the book offers a rich introduction to the problems and promises of religion in dialogue with 21st-century diversity. Religion, Diversity and Conflict will serve as a veritable primer on the field of practical theology. (Series: International Practical Theology - Vol. 15)

Ballot Battles

"The 2000 presidential election, with its problems in Florida, was not the first major vote-counting controversy in the nation's history--nor the last. Ballot Battles traces the evolution of America's experience with these disputes, from 1776 to now, explaining why they have proved persistently troublesome and offering an institutional solution"--

Theological Reflection across Religious Traditions

Theological reflection — connecting real life, ministry, and religious traditions — is a core component of most pastoral training. It is also a hallmark of practical theology and a common spiritual exercise among ordinary Christians trying to discern how their beliefs might influence daily living. Yet, our society is increasingly pluralistic, with growing numbers of people from varying belief systems — from Islam to Buddhism — as well as an increasing number of atheists. In this book, Edward Foley reimagines theological reflection in interfaith contexts and with those of no faith tradition. The book addresses and celebrates diverse beliefs, and envisions the practice of theological r...
