The Word is Flesh and Blood follows the movement of the Mass. In 15 chapters, it explores the biblical sources and inspiration of this great sacramental action, after the pattern of 'assembly', 'word', 'Eucharist' and 'mission'.
Here are reflections from an international team of scholars on the place of the Old Testament in Christian worship, on the Psalms, and on the New Testament, especially the Gospels. You will also find discussions on the place of music in Scripture and liturgy, as well as the formation and use of creeds.
At once biblical, theological, and spiritual, The Word is Flesh and Blood will be of service to the Church at large, to all involved in pastoral care and catechetics, to those seeking to renew and strengthen their faith, and to those who have questions about the Mass.
Contributors include Jerome Murphy-O’Connor, Liam Walshe, Céline Mangan, Seán Freyne.
