A Tapestry of Beliefs: Christian Traditions in Northern Ireland
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungWhile religion is not the only factor in the Northern Ireland conflict, myth and misinformation about the similarities and differences that exist between the four largest Churches (Catholic, Presbyterian, Church of Ireland and Methodist) and the score or so of smaller denominations contribute to the poisonous climate of sectarianism. In this important new book, representatives of each Christian tradition in the North dispel much of this misinformation in clear statements of their actual beliefs, practices and structures.Written by members of the denominational traditions, each chapter follows broadly similar themes: their origins, doctrinal position, sacraments and ordinances, spirituality, worship and liturgy, buildings and artefacts, and attitudes to other denominations.Additional chapters analyse some of the issues -- and isms -- which cross denominational boundaries, including evangelicalism and fundamentalism, ecumenism, politics, sectarianism, and the role of women.
