The Banquet’s Wisdom


“The Banquet’s Wisdom” offers a thoughtful and concise overview of the theologies of the Eucharist during the first 1500 years of western Christianity. Gary Macy’s engaging writing style makes the complexity of the topic accessible for readers.


Product Description

In the Introduction, Macy points to the past and asks some very pertinent questions:

For over fifteen hundred years, Christians were, for the most part, “in communion”. … The Christian people, as a whole, have a much longer history of unity than of disunity. This simple historical observation raises some interesting questions. How did we as a community get from there to here? How did the earlier centuries manage to maintain the communion which seems so to elude us? … Perhaps in rediscovering for overcoming our present disunion.
