The Vatican II documents remind us that the spiritual journey is not made in a vacuum, that God has chosen to save us, not individually, but as The People of God. The Eucharist must help Christians to make their choices by discerning out of Christ's paschal mystery. For this process to take place, however, Christians must first understand how the Eucharist puts them in touch with Christ's passion, death, and resurrection, and what concrete implications being in touch with this mystery has for their daily lives.In THE WAY OF MYSTERY, James Keating and Dennis Billy examine the Eucharistic mystery to uncover its significance for Christian life today. They seek to discover what implications the simple act of breaking bread together has for the concrete decisions Christians make. And they point out how, if Christian worship is to enliven the believing community, it must help the faithful to integrate the spiritual and moral dimensions of their lives by leading them to embrace the attitudes and values embraced by Christ. The book is intended for an educated lay audience. It is also idea for adult continuing education classes, as a text for undergraduate courses seeking to integrate faith and the moral life, or as supplementary reading for moral theology classes or in the area of Word and Worship.
