When Jesus spoke at the tale he provided instructions for his disciples to follow. A Banqueter's Guide to the al-Night Soup Kitchen of the Kingdom of God views those teachings as a set of guidelines for us to follow in al areas of life. Through the study of metaphors commonly used to describe the Eucharist, this book connects the Eucharist and Jesus' words and actions with current issues in society. Each chapter defines a metaphor associated with the Eucharist and explores its moral, social, and ethical implications. Readers will become more aware of the need for social justice as they identify with the parables and guidance of Jesus.

Chapters are: Take and Eat," *Breaking Bread, - *This is My Body, - and *An Unbloody Sacrifice. -

Patrick T. McCormick, STP, is associate professor of Christian ethics at Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington.
