New issue of Marriage, Families & Spirituality
(formerly INTAMS Review)

Marriage, Families & SpiritualityIssue 23/1 (2017)

 

After 22 years of documenting and developing the spirituality of marriage and family, the INTAMS Review changes its name to Marriage, Families & Spirituality (MFS), with a bright blue and yellow cover replacing the sober beige one.
Its first 22 volumes have earned a solid position in libraries, periodical indexes, and bookshelves, but the title INTAMS Review did not show to (new) readers what lay inside. The change of name comes after much reflection and preparation, ad we trust that you will recognize its value. The high academic standards, the choice of topics, the extended book review section, and the care that has always gone into the journal will not change. The new name only reflects better its contents and its aim.
With the new title, we look forward to enticing new readers from the academic and professional worlds, as well as all those who have an interest in the topic of marriage, families and spirituality.

A Point of No Return?
Amoris Laetitia on Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage

 

A Point of No ReturnProceedings of the international INTAMS symposium "A Point of No Return? Amoris Laetitia on Discernment and Conscience for Divorced and Remarried Couples", Catholic University Leuven, 25-27 October 2016.

 

In his post-synodal exhortation Amoris laetitia, Pope Francis calls upon the church to "make room for the consciences of the faithful, who very often respond as best they can to the Gospel amid their limitations, and are capable of carrying out their own discernment in complex situations". Respect for personal conscience and pastoral discernment should also guide the church's theological stance and pastoral attitude toward contemporary forms of living together, especially those that do not conform to the ideal of exclusive and lifelong marriage.

This volume explores the implications of this vision, with particular regard to those whose first marriage has failed and who have entered a second union. Is admission to the sacraments of reconciliation and the eucharist the goal of such a personal and pastoral discernment? Does Amoris laetitia open up new possibilities in the pastoral care of the divorced and remarried, or is it just a belated legitimation of practices that have long been established in many places? How does it affect the church's understanding of the indissolubility of marriage? A special focus is on the reception of Amoris laetitia by marriage and family care services in various local churches throughout Europe.

Marriage - Constancy and Change in Togetherness

 

Partners develop and change during their shared path through life. Some things abide, while others are subject to change. Precisely because not everything remains as it was at the beginning, changes can also be understood as creative possibilities for common growth. This book seeks to show how married couples are challenged to give each other support, and also to help each other in this process of growth.

In this Album amicorum, three thematic areas are taken up. These constitute the basis of five decades of shared life, and the wisdom of marital love finds expression in them: theology and spirituality, questions about bioethics, and the Jewish-Christian dialogue.

Ehe - Bestand und Wandel im Miteinander

Partner entwickeln und verändern sich während eines geteilten Lebensweges. Manches hat dabei Bestand, anderes ist dem Wandel unterworfen. Gerade weil nicht alles so bleibt wie am Anfang, lassen sich Veränderungen auch als kreative Möglichkeiten für gemeinsames Wachstum begreifen. Dieser Band möchte aufzeigen, wie Ehepaare herausgefordert sind, sich gegenseitig zu unterstützen, aber auch helfen zu lassen in diesem Wachstumsprozess.

In diesem Album amicorum werden drei Themenbereiche angerissen, welche die Grundlage bilden für fünf Jahrzehnte geteilten Lebens, und in denen die Weisheit der ehelichen Liebe ihren Ausdruck findet: Theologie und Spiritualität, Fragestellungen zur Bioethik und der jüdisch-christliche Dialog.
