Overview

For over 2,000 years, the Catholic Church has been celebrating the Eucharist as the source and summit of the Christian Faith - yet it is still one of the most divisive doctrines separating Catholics and Protestants. An author, lawyer, and leading defender of the Faith, John Salza unpacks this pillar of the Catholic Faith in the same clear, engaging style that has drawn thousands of readers to his other works. Here, Salza demonstrates how, without question, the Eucharist - as the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ - is deeply rooted in biblical history.

Whether you are defending, questioning, or exploring the role of the Eucharist in the Catholic Faith, you will come away from The Biblical Basis for the Eucharist with a crystal-clear understanding of what the Church teaches and why, from a Scriptural perspective.

Extensively footnoted, yet filled with the passion of a courtroom drama, this book explains the Eucharist and the Mass in fascinating detail: How the Old Testament sacrificial system was the foundation of the Church's celebration of the Eucharist, How the Mass applies Christ's sacrifice to the faithful through time and space, Why belief in the Eucharist is key to understanding God's nature and His wonderful plan of salvation. ... and so much more!

Regardless of your level of knowledge about the Eucharist or the Catholic Faith, The Biblical Basis for the Eucharist will enhance your appreciation for the sacrifice of the Mass and help you to experience a deeper relationship with our Eucharistic Lord.
