The Breaking of the Bread: The Development of the Eucharist according to Acts
As shown in Father LaVerdiere's first volume, Dining in the Kingdom of God, Luke's Gospel is a chronicle of Jesus' journeys and meals along the way to Jerusalem.
From the placing of the infant Jesus in a manger (where animals feed) to the meal the risen Christ. shared with his disciples before the ascension, Luke's Gospel is a
story of meals.
The second part of Luke's chronicles, the Acts of the
Apostles, continues the narrative of meals, hospitality and Eucharist in
the life of the early Church. LaVerdiere's eloquent scholarship makes
the wonders of Luke's work accessible to all and helps us to understand
the Eucharist as liturgy and as life.
