Touchstone

What a useful book for the theologian, especially the sacramental theologian, to have on the bookself!
Catholic Books Review

This collection of articles will no doubt become an essential resource for students and teachers of the Eucharist. The topic is approached from numerous perspectives, historical, theological, ecumenical, not to mention popular piety. Here the readers can consider the Eucharist in all its complexity, avoiding simple, parochial answers.
