The Mystery of Faith: A Christian Creed for Today
Using Scripture and contemporary theology, this book analyzes the phrase "the mystery of faith" found at the center of the Church's Eucharistic liturgy. Josef Jungmann concluded from his historical research that the Eucharistic symbol expressed the whole of faith for the early Church. Understood in this sense, it can still function today as what Karl Rahner calls a "short formula" or creed of the mystery of Christian faith.
