Item Description...
Yarnold presents the richness of the late 4th-century initiation rites for new Christians as described in the sermons of Cyril, Amborse, Chrysostom, and Theodore and how this explains modern RCIA practice. A masterly work essential for all

Publishers Description

This new edition of Father Yarnold's 1972 authoritative work has been recast so that it corresponds throughout with the Rite of Christian Initiation as it now exists. Anyone with a serious pastoral or scholarly interest in the rite will benefit from this definitive, readable blend of history, theology, patristics, and liturgy.

Each period and step of the RCIA is explained and compared to the fourth-century rite after which the modern one was modeled. In addition to more subtle improvements, this second edition gives a clearer and more accurate account of the three anointings, and a better explanation of the scrutinies.

The sermons of Cyril, Ambrose, Chrysostom, and Theodore, which form the basis of our understanding of the rite as originally celebrated, are conveniently gathered in this one volume in an accurate and readable English translation, with introductions and notes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Baptismal Homilies  Jan 1, 2006
An interresting book.

First you are introduced to the subject by some introductory chapters. These will be particularly interresting for Roman Catholics, but for me, as an Orthodox they contained no more than a few interresting remarks.

The good parts of the book are the translations of St. Cyril of Jerusalem, St. Ambrose, St. John Chrysostom, and especially Theodore the Interpreter (of Mopsuestia). The Baptismal Homilies of Theodore are the most interresting ones in the book. Just these are worth the money you'll pay for this book. But the other translations are also wonderful. If you've been reading from "older" translations, these selected homilies will be a welcome addition in readable in English. The footnotes that accompany the introductory chapters and the translations are a real bonus too.
