Description:     

From the Preface: "This book represents an attempt to penetrate to the heart of social life, which is essentially something holy, a sacrament. The patron saint of social life is John the Baptist, and its divine inspirator and helper is the Elohim Uriel, who stands with the other six Elohim under the direct guidance of Christ. What arises through their guidance may be called the Christian social impulse.

Since Uriel is almost unknown, we will explore his activity first, in “Five Urielic Considerations.” These were first published in the magazine Lazarus (Raisdorf 1989/2;1991/1;1994/1,2,3) and revised for this book. My intention is to gather together building blocks toward a sacramental approach to social life—not to replace the ecclesiastic sacraments, but to stand beside them. Both social and ecclesiastic sacramentalism are subject to Uriel. Each assumes that Christ faces us in every human being. That is why throughout the text, I have capitalized the word “Other” when referring to fellow human beings..."
