Reviews - What do customers think about Eucharistic Presence: A Study in the Theology of Disclosure?
Eucharistic Presence Mar 18, 2007
This is an awesome review of how symbol and sign impacts the depth of Catholic Theology. It provides a deeper understanding of what sign and symbol is and how we have lost this meaning.
Even a Protestant Can Agree Feb 23, 2006
If you've ever wondered what in the world Catholics were talking about when they speak of the presence of Christ in the bread and wine, this book is a major step forward in making that doctrine make sense.
Msgr. Sokolowski is one of the foremost philosophers of phenomenology and consequently is very good at explaining how things are presented to, made present to, or appear to humans. His is a philosophy that simply makes sense.
Working from the foundation of the "Christian Distinction" between God and World, Sokolowski shows how the Sacrifice of Christ can be made present to us (and how we can be made present to it) in the Eucharist even 2000 years later. This is his second book on the "Theology of Disclosure" (the first being "The God of Faith and Reason") and it will change how you look at the world.
Even Protestants (like myself) can agree with what Msgr. Sokolowski says in this book. Not only can we agree, but we can gain a new understanding of and appreciation for one of the central Christian performances.
