ISBN 0809128861 "(This book) brings together contemporary theological insights into the unity of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist which together form the introduction to Christian sacramental li fe. They express and make present the much deeper and more fundamental reality of Jesus as the prime sacrament and the Church as the fundamental sacramental expression in which all individual sacraments find their basis. Fr. Osborne prese n t s t h e b est biblical, ecumenical and modern sacramental thinking for creating a sacramental theology rooted in the thinking of the Second Vatican Council. It combines the theological and the important spiritual and liturgical dimensions of sa cr am e nt al p r ep aration, and is designed for those engaged both in teaching sacraments and in preparing other for their reception."
