How can it be that many find the celebration at the heart of Christian faith merely routine-or even meaningless? What can we do about it? Anderson addresses these questions head-on, exploring how the liturgy's meaning can come alive for us, how it can ennoble and involve us. He explores the extraordinary possibilities that the Eucharist affords us.

From the Back Cover:

"Despite the best of intentions and the hard work of many, the bulk of people in Sunday congregations are not particularly involved in the ritual that is going on around them".

How can it be that many find the celebration at the heart of Christian faith merely routine -- or even meaningless? And more important, what can we do about it?

In Making the Eucharist Matter Frank Andersen addresses these questions head-on, exploring how the liturgy's meaning can come alive for us, how it can ennoble and involve us. Grounding his reflections in the biblical roots of the Eucharist and in the earliest practice of the church, he explores the extraordinary possibilities that the Eucharist affords us: to embody Jesus and his values, and to embrace the compassion he showed for all.

Making the Eucharist Matter is ideal reading for anyone who longs for a deep, rich experience of the Eucharist. The inclusion of questions for reflection and discussion make it a valuable resource for personal reading as well as for faith sharing groups.
