OCLC Number: Notes: Translation of La tradition et la vie de l'Église. Description: , [1] pages ; 20 cm. Series Title: Faith and fact books, Other. This is an older book, but it's considered the gold standard, classic book on tradition. Judaism believed in their oral and scriptural traditions. Oral traditions were as binding as scripture (Josephus-Antiquities XIII, and Philo The Special Laws IV ) and every bit as carefully by: Any Protestant who reads this book will have heartburn, for sure. Catholics who have even read the Catechism of the Catholic Church need to read this exhaustive ( page) book on why Catholicism is the Church of Jesus Christ. I may as well say that here, because that is what the book says. And, more than that, the book proves it -- from scripture/5(7). Tradition, has been entrusted to the Church that every catechist is called to serve. The Faith and Life Activity Books contain four supplemental written activities for each chapter.

The secular understanding is that tradition is a long-established ritual, custom, or belief that is passed down from one generation to the next. For example, families have certain traditions in the way they celebrate holidays, birthdays, or vacations. This book gives a good background on the importance of tradition in the Catholic Church. It helped me to understand how tradition and the Bible run hand in hand. Some of it is rather thick to get through and is difficult to understand if one has no background with the church history, but it was interesting to learn/5.

Since the writings of the early Church could be considered a testimony to the traditions that the apostles handed down, it would be possible to argue that these ought to carry authority for us today. It is not just the early Church that honored apostolic tradition, but Paul said to do so as well (1 Cor. ; 2 . He presents a systematic, organic synthesis of the essential and fundamental Catholic teachings in the light of the Second Vatican Council and the whole of the Church’s Tradition. This book is the most thorough, complete and popular catechetical summary of Catholic belief in print that is based on the universal Catechism. Tradition, however, includes all areas of life of the Christian community and its piety, not just the teachings but also the forms of worship service, bodily gestures of prayer and the liturgy, oral and written tradition and the characteristic process of transition of the oral into written tradition, a new church tradition of rules for eating. By tradition we do not mean traditionalism. The Tradition of the Church is not an object which we possess, but a reality by which we are possessed. The Church’s life has its source in God’s act of revelation in Jesus Christ, and in the gift of the Holy Spirit to his people and his work in their history.
