About-

This book ventures a fresh look at the Eucharist in ways that draw Christians together rather than divide them. A respected scholar of liturgical history, Horton Davies here explores the Eucharist as memorial, as thanksgiving, as sacrifice, as eschatological banquet, as communion, as mystery, and as liberation and social justice.

A separate chapter examines the unitive concept of "transignification." Although the book as a whole presents ecumenical perspectives on the bread of life and cup of joy, Davies also looks at areas of disagreement among the partners in ecumenical discussion.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"One of the remarkable results of the liturgical renewal is the recovery of the Eucharist and of its power to shape congregational spirituality. 'Bread of Life and Cup of Joy' is the definitive study of this modern phenomenon. Here, in this thorough work, the reader is led into a deep and profound experience of this, the greatest of mysteries."

Robert Webber, Wheaton College
