More About this Book
This book offers the reader a fuller understanding of the Eucharist through the story of the disciples on their way to Emmaus. Nouwen is answering the questions: How can all of my life be Eucharistic, and how can the daily celebration of the Eucharist make it that way? Nouwen focuses on five main aspects of the Eucharistic celebration: loss, presence, invitation, communion and mission, with a particular attention to the spiritual movement from resentment to gratitude.
