The Eucharist continues to be central to contemporary Christian religious tradition and to be the focus for a wide range of assumptions and disputes. Chief amongst these disputes is the role of women in the theology and the ritual of the Eucharist.Reinterpreting the Eucharist brings together a diverse range of voices with each using their own marginalized experience to explore other ways – indigenous culture, medieval and contemporary art, social history, and environmental ethics – of engaging with the Eucharist. Presenting new forms of theological and ethical engagement, the book responds to the challenge of reconsidering the meaning of the Eucharist today.

Review:

‘This anthology serves up an abundant breadbasket of original ways of re-imagining and re-symbolizing the Eucharist to change perspectives, expand imaginations, and, most importantly, enable full participation by women in the celebration of the Eucharist. I recommend this book for purchase by theologians of all specialties as it offers an interdisciplinary and inter-specialty approach to the Eucharist.’ – New Theology Review

Reinterpreting the Eucharist is a very scholarly yet easy-to-read treatment of many of the contentious issues around Eucharist ... There are many delights and challenges in the collection, inclusive as it is of so many different perspectives, references to significant gender, and ecological theologians and thinkers.’ - Pacifica
