The Eucharistic Communion and the World, Hardback Book

The Eucharistic Communion and the World Hardback

Edited by Luke Ben Tallon, John D. Zizioulas

Description

This is a collection of writings on the Eucharist by one of the most important theological thinkers of our time.

The theology of John Zizioulas presents a beautiful vision of the Church as Eucharistic communion, in which human persons both are gathered into Jesus Christ and are sent back into the world.

In his previous books, Zizioulas focused on the way this communion is related to the communion of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which calls us to understand being as communion and provides the only foundation for otherness and identity.

With its sustained attention directly to the Eucharistic communion, this volume provides the context for those discussions.

Zizioulas here explores the biblical dimensions and eschatological foundation of the Eucharist, the celebration of the Eucharist by the Church, and the ethos of the Eucharistic community.

These essays are provocatively concrete and practical, showing once again that Zizioulas' teaching on persons, communion and otherness has radical implications for the life of the Church and its relationship to the world.
