The Origin and Development of the Holy Eucharist, East and West
How the Churches of the East and the West, who claim the same holy mother, prepare for, gather, and consume their heavenly bread is explored in these pages. The biblical background and history of the Eucharist in the Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches and a comparison of current practices will be found here as well, along with chapters on our Jewish and Greek heritage. Also reviewed are some of the doctrinal and organizational differences that inhibit a return to intercommunion, the ultimate goal of both Churches in their desire to fulfill the Lord's prayer "that all may be one."
