Product Description

The Reformed tradition has often made doctrine the starting point for eucharistic theology. In this book Martha Moore-Keish seeks to counter that tendency, placing the Reformed tradition in conversation with liturgical theology and ritual theory to move toward a fuller appreciation of the ritual dimension of the Lord's Supper.

While liturgical theologians assert more strongly than most Reformed theologians that knowledge of God comes primarily through liturgy, both groups, says Moore-Keish, have not always attended closely to local practice. In keeping with ritual scholars who urge closer attention to particular practices, Moore-Keish argues that we need to be cautious about claiming what the eucharist universally is and does. We must not allow predetermined "meaning" to blind us to the "doing" of eucharist in local churches. An in-depth study of a particular congregation helps flesh out Moore-Keish's thesis.

Endorsements

“In the strong tradition of both John Calvin and John Williamson Nevin, here is a book of lucid theology and fine pastoral help. The excellent and gracious summaries of the Reformed tradition, of current liturgical theology, and of ritual studies all lead to healthy proposals about the local practice of the Lord’s Supper that will help in its renewal.” -Gordon W. Lathrop, Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia

Interpretation
"Do This in Remembrance of Me is a worthwhile and enjoyable read."
 
Perspectives
"Moore-Keish does a wonderful job of introducing the reader to what, for many, will be a different way of conceiving how God is active in the Eucharist."
 
Liturgical Ministry
"For anyone involved ecumenically . . . reading this book is essential. Moore-Keish is not afraid to name the issues boldly and at the same time she is ever sensitive when referring to other traditions."
