Food From Heaven - The Eucharist in Scripture
By Jeanne Kun
Food from Heaven will help readers Navigate through the Bible to understand and appreciate the foundation of eucharistic worship. Among the text studied are Old Testament realities that anticipate the Eucharist as well as gospel accounts of Jesus' bread of life discourse, the Last Supper, the crucifixion, and the breaking of the bread with the two disciples in Emmaus. Each of the six sessions includes the full topical Scripture text, a short commentary, and questions for reflection and discussion. "In the Spotlight" sections are especially helpful to Catholics, featuring historical and cultural details, explanations of Greek words and quotes from church fathers, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and contemporary Catholic writers.
