Theology began with the appearances of the risen Jesus. That is, theology began when persons were confronted with a presence that could only be realized by the act of God.

In The Eucharistic Faith, the first of a significant new systematic theology of the Eucharist, Ralph N. McMichael weaves liturgy and theology together to understand the ways in which theology and Christian faith are, at heart, about the receiving of the gift of Jesus' life in Communion.

With a foreword by Stanley Hauerwas.

Ralph McMichael, Stanley Hauerwas

Ralph N. McMichael, Jr. is an Anglican priest residing in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. He received his Ph.D. in systematic theology from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. He is the author of 'The Vocation of Anglican Theology' (2014)

"In this provocative, stimulating and absorbing book, Ralph McMichael turns the customary considerations of worship and theology around. He maintains that, rather than our faith leading us to worship in the Eucharist, instead the Eucharist is literally the shape of our faith. Thus we don't judge the Eucharist through scripture but vice versa, because scripture is intended to be read eucharistically. It would be hard to read this book and not to recall its ambitious argument each time one participated in the Eucharist." -- Samuel Wells, Vicar, St Martin-in-the-Fields, London
