The 1983 revised Code of Canon Law is now a dozen years old. Since then hundreds of new laws and more than 25 authentic interpretations of laws have been promulgated, not only adding new legislation, but in some cases changing canons of the code and norms of the liturgical books. Also during this period many new documents have appeared from the Holy See and the conference of bishops.Some of the more important recent publications that affect the pastoral ministry are: the 1990 Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches; the 1993 Directory for Ecumenism; the 1988 Directory for Sunday Celebrations in the Absence of a Priest; a new marriage ritual (1991) and rites for ordination (1990) which have not yet appeared in English; and new American editions of the RCIA, Order of Christian Funerals, and Book of Blessings.This completely revised and updated edition incorporates changes in law, new laws and commentaries promulgated since 1983 and features new indexes, a 14-page glossary of canon law terms, an outline of the 1988 reforms of the Roman Curia, a new chapter on holy orders and clergy, new sections on the faithful, rights and obligations, sacramentals, Communion services outside Mass, and much more.
Lutheranism 101: The Course works closely with Lutheranism 101 to take the reader deeper into the teaching, doctrine, or practice being presented. Sometimes that means digging into the text of Lutheranism 101 and exploring connections that are being made. Other times it means working with Scripture or some of the primary Lutheran resources for doctrine and practice.
