What Tahir did is a great dedication. The world is entering a golden age of philanthropy. I think it’s human nature to want to help people who are suffering—when you can see the suffering. Technology is making it easier to see people who are struggling, whether they live in your own community or halfway around the world. That’s one reason why generosity is growing. Whether it is through volunteering time or giving money, people recognize their role as global citizens and see that they have many ways of helping others. -- Bill Gates Tycoons have important roles to play in contributing to the creation of sound, pleasant, dynamical national productivity with positive energy. There must be strong motivation to dedicate themselves to Indonesia instead of concentrating merely on their profit. Considering the enormous opportunity enjoyed by our conglomerate heads and the direct support of the people, it is only appropriate for the conglomerate heads to be on the front line as part of those accountable for the Indonesia economy. Preserving economic stability does not solely rest on the shoulders of the government but also on every one of us. -- B.J. Habibie President of the Republic of Indonesia 1998 –1999 Tahir has this special edge in him that enables him to feel such a personal and basic issue in our soldiers’ life. He appreciates our soldiers for being fellow human beings who have concerns for their own families’welfare. It reflects his humanist’s passion. -- Retired General Moeldoko Former Commander of the Indonesian National Armed Forces

The present study is made up of three parts. The first one, entitled the notion of sin by Stanislas Lyonnet, starts from the observation that redemption is essentially the destruction of sin. For this reason the treatise on redemption in the New Testament is preceded by an inquiry into the notion of sin, as it derives from the Old Testament, especially from the account of Genesis 3. The second part, also from Stanislas Lyonnet, is devoted to the terminology of redemption in the N.T. The third part, by Leopold Sabourin, is about sacrifice and redemption in the history of St. Paul's formula Christ made sin (2 Cor 5,21). The author examines the most representative testimonies of the ancient and Medieval Greek and Latin writers, and exposes his interpretation of 2 Cor 5, 21, in which the notion of sacrifice for sin appears as a key concept in this formulation.

It will stimulate discussion because of itscontroversial critique of the dominant paradigm for Eucharistictheology, its reclamation of St Thomas Aquinas’s theology ofthe Eucharist, and its response to Pope John Paul II’sEcclesia de Eucharistia. Argues that the Eucharist cannot be separated from sacrifice,and rediscovers the biblical connections between sacrifice andcommunion. Timed to coincide with the Year of the Eucharist, proclaimed byPope John Paul II. Reclaims the riches of St Thomas Aquinas’s theology ofthe Eucharist, which had recently been reduced to a metaphysicaldefence of transubstantiation.

Tim Gray shows that the todah sacrifice is what links and underlies the Passover and the Mass. Introduced in the Old Testament, the todah—in contrast to the yearly celebration of Passover—was a continual sacrifice of thanks and praise to God for His saving actions: "A todah sacrifice would be offered by someone whose life had been delivered from great peril." Just as the Passover was a sacrifice in memory of when the Jewish people had been saved from death during their exile in Egypt, so too, the Mass is a continual sacrifice of thanksgiving for our salvation.
