"In this collection of essays, the mature wisdom of Maxwell Johnson and new insights from the fresh eyes of his doctoral students combine to provide a rich feast for liturgical scholars and students alike. These studies will inspire further reflections on the eucharistic prayer, East and West, past and present."/div>
Bryan D. Spinks, Bishop F. Percy Goddard Professor Emeritus of Liturgical Studies and Pastoral Theology, Yale Divinity School

"This is a wide-ranging collection of impressive studies of eucharistic prayers, not only classic ones from the East and West, but of some only just beginning to be studied of Ethiopian and Maronite origins. It stands in a series of like collections edited by Paul F. Bradshaw and Maxwell Johnson. The sheer diversity of anaphoras examined and provocative issues analyzed makes this a remarkable, rewarding volume for students of the liturgy."
The Rev. Michael Plekon, PhD, Professor Emeritus: Sociology, Religion & Culture, The City University of New York - Baruch College

"In every generation the Eucharist, the central activity of Christian worship, attracts some of the sharpest theological minds. The Eucharist is a corporate action, a locus of theological debate, a ritual of belonging and identity, and a mystery. In this collection of ten papers, we see that Christians are still seeking understanding. This collection opens up some of the most pressing questions facing us as liturgists, theologians, and worshippers; and provides us with a valuable 'state of the question' in eucharistic theology today."
Thomas O'Loughlin, Professor Emeritus of Historical Theology, The University of Nottingham
