Deepening the Christian identity celebrated in worship Tim Sedgwick s Sacramental Ethics was a groundbreaking book that awaked us to the significance of religious practices for the moral like. We are, therefore, indebted to Augsburg Fortress for their willingness to make this work available for a new generation who has much to learn from this book. Stanley Hauerwas Duke Divinity School This remarkable little book remains a classic, a wise and concrete reflection on the life of faith as a real way of life, grounded in the communal encounter with the grace of God in public worship. Look here to see again what word and sacrament have to do with daily life. Read here to think again how the paschal movement of Christ from death to life can pull us along, converting us to the care and embrace of the world. Gordon W. Lathrop Charles A. Schieren Professor of Liturgy Emeritus Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia Timothy Sedgwick is the most imaginative and provocative moralist now writing in the American Anglican tradition. He s grounded and always has a fresh take on things. If Christian ethics in the United States is finally learning something about the importance of ritual and worship we largely have Tim to thank. David H. Smith Director, Yale Interdisciplinary Bioethics Center Sacramental Ethics sets Christian understanding and behavior where it belongs, in the Passover of Christ and of those whose faith lies in him from death to life. Aidan Kavanagh, O.S.B. Timothy F. Sedgwick is Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Vice President, and the Clinton S. Quin Professor of Christian Ethics at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria.
