When Jesus spoke at the tale he provided instructions for his disciples to follow. A Banqueter's Guide to the al-Night Soup Kitchen of the Kingdom of God views those teachings as a set of guidelines for us to follow in al areas of life. Through the study of metaphors commonly used to describe the Eucharist, this book connects the Eucharist and Jesus' words and actions with current issues in society. Each chapter defines a metaphor associated with the Eucharist and explores its moral, social, and ethical implications. Readers will become more aware of the need for social justice as they identify with the parables and guidance of Jesus.

Chapters are: Take and Eat," *Breaking Bread, - *This is My Body, - and *An Unbloody Sacrifice. -

Patrick T. McCormick, STP, is associate professor of Christian ethics at Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington.


Industry Reviews

[F]resh reading of the tradition that includes a careful exegesis of Scripture, official church documents, the writings of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the writings of a diverse group of theologians. . . . it is highly recommended both for individual and group study.Rite
Regardless of whether a person's formative years were before, during, or after the Second Vatican Council, the content and style of this book invite meaningful reflection on the relationship between the Eucharist and justice.New Theology Review
If you are concerned at all about the poor around us, this book will stir you to action.Liguorian
. . . well worth the read for pastoral ministers-in particular, preachers, liturgists, and catechists.Pastoral Music
. . . a good discussion starter for a faith-sharing community with special interest in Catholic social teaching.Buena Vista Resource Page
Many authors acknowledge the connection between Eucharist and justice. Pat McCormick goes a big step further by explaining and illustrating the connection. He does so using clever and colorful prose that will delight readers and enrich their spirits.Kenneth R. Himes, O.F.M., Chair, Department of Theology, Boston College
A profound meditation on the intersection of liturgy and discipleship. We see just how Eucharist leads us to a life for justice - and nourishes us to achieve it. What a joy when scholarship is yoked to realism - and placed at the service of believers. A rich resource for reflection by liturgy teams, preachers, adult education groups, and gatherings of believers meeting for Lenten renewal. This book would make a valuable gift from pastors to the members of their congregations.Timothy E. O'Connell, Ph.D., Professor of Christian Ethics, Loyola University Chicago
Pat McCormick has written a book that challenges almost as gently and unrelentingly as the Eucharist itself. His creative and faithful presentation of the Catholic tradition of Eucharist as bread, table, body, and sacrifice gives more than a menu. It shows that remembering Jesus means practicing God's justice.Rev. Jim Dallen, Religious Studies Department, Gonzaga University
