9781595250063: Wedding Feast of the Lamb

This text places the Eucharist in the universal context of world religions and shows how the Eucharist is God's response to the universal human quest for the perfect sacrifice of expiation, thanksgiving, and communion. It not only discusses the explicit Eucharistic texts of the New Testament but also shows the role and meaning of the Eucharist within each Gospel, within the theology of Paul, the Letter to the Hebrews, and the Book of Revelation.It cites forgotten texts and recovers surprising insights from the Fathers that disclose the link between the Eucharist and mystical experience, the presence of all the mysteries of Christ (in particular his death, resurrection, and his coming in glory) in the Eucharistic celebration. The systematic part is developed in dialogue with Protestant concerns regarding the Eucharistic presence of Christ and the Eucharist as sacrifice. It also shows the importance of the Greek Fathers' doctrine on the ontological transformation of the Eucharistic elements for transcending the impasse of the contemporary debate on transignification. This book is an essential resource for the study of the Eucharist in STL, STD, and MDiv courses and libraries. It is also recommended for pastors, deacons, and professors. Published by Liturgy Training Publications.

Review:

If we discover the "logic" of God’s self-emptying love, the Eucharist becomes the luminous center. -- New Testament Abstracts, Weston Jesuit School of Theology, Vol. 49, No. 2, 2005

...explains the meaning of the Eucharist...and how the congregation and presider contribute to the act each time it is performed. --Crux of the News, 2005

Book Description Hillenbrand Books October 2004, 2004. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Chapters on the history of sacrifice, both in world religions and in the worship of ancient Israel, open this meditative examination of the Christian 'bloodless sacrifice,' the Eucharist. Fr. Kereszty locates the Eucharist at the center of the map of cultures, past and present, and sees in it the fulfillment of the human quest for thanksgiving, expiation of evil, and reconciliation with the divine. Though nearly all catholic Christendom regards it as the central act of Christian life, it is also, tragically, a difficult and dividing issue, and has been since Our Lord first spoke about His Body and Blood. Kereszty reminds us of the Gospel of John in the preface to Wedding Feast-'From the first moment of its revelation up to our own age, the Eucharist became the greatest challenge to the disciples' faith, an issue that separated those who believe from those who refused to believe: 'This saying is hard, who can accept it?'' While drawing from broad sources, Kereszty's expressed focus is the liturgical tradition of the Christian West where, in the wake of Vatican II, a revival of interest in liturgical and eucharistic theology has made a book like this not only interesting, but necessary. 270 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 94214
