When the vast majority of American Catholics today do not understand the Eucharist, much less believe what the Church and Christ himself maintain about it, Bethlehem: The House of Bread is a timely primer to understand the Catholic teaching on the Eucharist. It provides an overview of what Vatican II declared the "source and summit of the Christian life." Step by step, Bethlehem ("House of Bread" in Hebrew) scans the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, revealing the scriptural roots of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, thus placating the Protestant views that it is merely symbolic!
Bethlehem continues the exploration with writings of the early church, medieval theologians, and recent influential Catholic leaders. All of them concur with the Bible. The Eucharist has the power to transform one's life. This booklet is for anyone desiring to know more about this vital mystery of the faith in these troubling time.
