Dive into an exploration of the seven sacraments unlike any you’ve ever seen before. In Spirit and Life: The Holy Sacraments of the Catholic Church, Rose Rea combines Scripture, background information from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and scholarly saints, and personal witness and explanation with breathtaking photography and simple design.
This coffee table book from Sophia Institute Press is beautiful to look at and enlightening to read. The personal reflections support the educational material and will, at times, move the reader to tears. Authors of these reflections include Katie Almon; Bobby Angel; Archbishop Samuel Aquila; Sr. John Thomas Armour, OP; Jason Craig; Sam Guzman; Gemma Hawes; Kelly J. Henson; Brittany Makely; Deacon Raymond Philip Napuli; Lila Rose; Matthew Samon; Dr. Andrew Swafford; Kendra Tierney; Fr. Phil Tighe; and Peter Weldon.
The photography features interior, exterior, and detail shots of beautiful churches throughout the world and complements the text well.
