Between the Prophetic and the Sacramental

Show Summary Details


This chapter reflects on sacramental ontology. It discusses issues such as the complex relationship between a phenomenology of flesh and hermeneutics of signs, between confessional “belief”, and pre- (or post-) confessional faith. It also reflects on the question of hermeneutically retrieving Catholic and Protestant traditions in the light of a postreligious eschatology.

Keywords: sacraments; God; ontology; Catholics; Protestants
