In this remarkable book, theologian and teacher Rev. John McKenna examines our use of sign and symbol as it pertains to the study of the Eucharist, the source and summit of the Church. In clear and accessible language he clarifies the use of sign and symbol from anthropological, phenomenological, ecumenical, and New Testament perspectives. He expertly analyzes historical backgrounds as well as current eucharistic theologies.
The related concepts of sign and symbol as it pertains to the Eucharist are sometimes difficult concepts to explain and teach-especially to those in the seminary or grad school who have not had proper foundation in philosophy and theology.
Rev. John McKenna clarifies symbol and reality of the Eucharist in a way that will deepen the understanding of this sublime mystery of the Faith. This book is designed to be used in sacraments, worship, and Eucharist courses at the undergraduate or pre-theology or theologate levels.
The section on Current Issues in Eucharistic Theology make it a useful resource for priests who want to keep up on the most recent studies in euchatistic theology.
