Abstract:

Here Father LaVerdiere examines how the New Testament refers to the Eucharist, what it tells us about the Eucharist, and how the Eucharist provided an important experiential and theological resource for the gospel stories of Jesus' life, ministry, passion and resurrection, as well as for the life and development of the Church. The book also looks beyond the New Testament and explores the ongoing development of Eucharistic theology and practice until Justin Martyr in the mid-second century.
