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.

Publisher's Description

The Reformed tradition has often made doctrine the starting point for eucharistic theology. If people rightly understand doctrines about Christ and the church, they can rightly partake of the sacrament.

Martha Moore-Keish seeks to counter that impulse. Instead, she places the Reformed tradition in conversation with liturgical theology and ritual theory, moving toward a fuller appreciation of the ritual dimension of the Eucharist. She upholds the contention of liturgical theologians that knowledge of God comes primarily through liturgy, and that the eucharist is, as Calvin portrayed it, a locus of God??'s activity.

However, she also contends, liturgical theologies have not always attended closely to local practice. Moore-Keish cautions that we must not allow predetermined ???meaning??? to blind us to the ???doing??? of eucharist in local churches.

Do This in Remembrance of Me is a thoughtful call to recover greater appreciation for the way in which relationships to God and one another are shaped by ritual action.

Author Bio

Martha L. Moore-Keish is assistant professor of theology at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia.

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
