Przednia okładka

Paulist Press, 2002 - 268
Here is a collection of essays and responses that is the result of an ecumenical conference on the Eucharist organized under Catholic auspices, at the University of Dallas. The essays, along with some responses, explore the theme of the sacrifice of the Eucharist across the disciplines of biblical studies, historical theology, and systematic theology.

The contributors include a Jewish rabbi, a Greek Orthodox scholar, Protestant theologians from a variety of backgrounds, as well as Catholic theologians. Among the distinguished names are David Stern, Robin Darling Young, Brian E. Daley, Everett Ferguson, and Avery Dulles.

Together, the essays provide important new insights that should promote a further convergence in our understanding of the Eucharist.
