"In this landmark work, Andrea Bieler and Luise Schottroff have brought together the best of contemporary scholarship on ritual theory and practice, early Jewish and Christian eschatology, world hunger and the global economy, the legacy of colonization, and the dynamics of torture as these have begun to change our thinking about the Eucharist. They show how each of these discussions has its roots in the witness and practice of the early churches - and how the ancient meaning of this holy meal has been obscured and distorted over the course of history. They offer a dramatic new vision of the Eucharist's transformative power for our world and raise urgent challenges for the contemporary church."--BOOK JACKET.

It includes reflection questions that lead readers into the issues raised in each chapter.
