Item description for A Body Broken for Broken People: Eucharist in the New Testament, Revised Edition by Francis Maloney...
Overview In the light of the practice of Jesus' own table and the Eucharistic practice of the early Church . . . is our contemporary Church still 'clasping sinners to her bosom'? Francis Moloney traces the basic traditions which record the words and actions of Jesus on the night before he died, when he celebrated a meal with his disciples. We discover that the early Church understood the Eucharist to be the place where people met the Lord despite their brokenness. Moloney challenges us to consider how welcome the broken are at the Eucharistic table in the contemporary Church.
