Item description for Thomas Aquinas and the Liturgy by David Berger...
Overview Rightly renowned for his articulation of the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist by transubstantiation, St. Thomas deserves also to be regarded as a master of liturgics. As Berger shows, St. Thomas provides a supremely incarnational view of the Christian liturgy, in which man, as a body-soul unity, is drawn with the angels into Christ's redemptive sacrifice.

Reviews - What do customers think about Thomas Aquinas and the Liturgy?
An invaluable tool for today Jul 23, 2006
Scholarly and straight-shooting, Thomas Aquinas and the Liturgy ably and succinctly demonstrates from the life and teaching of the Angelic Doctor his profound grasp of the nature of the Liturgy--the active, bodily contemplation of Christ's redeeming work and its renewal in our very midst--something which the Church of our day needs urgently to rediscover. This book is an invaluable tool for that crucial task.
Common Denominator Oct 30, 2005
St. Thomas of Aquinas, David Berger and Pope Benedict XVI have one thing in common - the love for the Liturgy. In this book the mind of the three can be clearly put side by side and from a bird's eye view one can clearly see the similarity of ideas. It seems that the doctrine of the Eucharist and the Liturgy had not changed at all. One just have to go deeper to explore its uncharted depths.
