The Eucharistic Theology of Early Church Fathers

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.28.11

Joel, who speaks of how he is more Eucharistic-centric than many of his Protestant friends, has a great post up on John Paul II and the Eucharist. Of course, I’m pretty Eucharistic-centric too. : )

Indeed, once you see how the ministry of the Church in Acts is linked to that of Christ’s in the Gospels—and...  [Continue Reading]
