This is a great book about the Catholic understanding of the Eucharist. Msgr. Kevin Irwin is a priest of the Archdiocese of New York and professor at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. His approach to the book is patterned after Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J., work on the Church, Models of the Church. He explores the meaning and celebration of the Eucharist from many angles. While anyone might profit from reading it, the book is more appropriate for theology students, pastoral ministers and continuing education courses. It does not seem to me to be aimed at fostering personal piety or spirituality on the Eucharist. This is not meant to be a critique of the book; rather, only to comment more on its aim. A final note seems appropriate. As the book was written in 2005, it makes reference to the Eucharistic prayers from the Mass in use at that time. Beginning in Advent 2011, the Church began using a new English translation of these prayers. Despite this, I think the reader will be able to make the connections to what Msgr. Irwin is trying to say. It is simply a great book.
