Do This in Remembrance of Me: A Ritual Approach to Reformed Eucharistic Theology


Do This in Remembrance of Me: A Ritual Approach to Reformed Eucharistic Theology Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Reformed tradition has often made doctrine the starting point for eucharistic theology. If people rightly understand doctrines about Christ and the church, they can rightly partake of the sacrament. Martha Moore-Keish seeks to counter that impulse. Instead, she places the Reformed tradition in conversation with liturgical theology and ritual theory, moving toward a fuller appreciation of the ritual dimension of the Eucharist. She upholds the contention of liturgical theologians that knowledge of God comes primarily through liturgy, and that the eucharist is, as Calvin portrayed it, a locus of God?'s activity. However, she also contends, liturgical theologies have not always attended closely to local practice. Moore-Keish cautions that we must not allow predetermined ?meaning? to blind us to the ?doing? of eucharist in local churches. Do This in Remembrance of Me is a thoughtful call to recover greater appreciation for the way in which relationships to God and one another are shaped by ritual action.
