    "Orthodox teaching, beautifully presented"

    Father Barron reads his own book, and that's a very good thing for the listener - he is a gifted speaker and preacher, and in addition, being the author, he also knows which words are emphasized, where the tone should be humorous or wry or serious.

    The material is never dramatized, but it is never dry or boring - I was enthralled throughout the four hour reading.

    I had a fairly good layman's understanding of the Eucharist, but this book has gone far beyond what I knew and has added greatly to my understanding.

    At several points I was moved to tears of gratefulness to our good God, who has provided for us forever, who has not left us orphans. Only God could conceive this sacramental system. No human mind could have ever imagined such a perfectly beautiful, perfectly fitting, perfectly sustaining way to be "God with us" until the world ends. How awesome is our God!

    This book is not only theological and apologetic, it is full of scripture quotations and poetry and artfully painted word pictures. You don't have to be a theologian to understand it. From beginning to end, the book shows how salvation history has always pointed to Jesus Christ in the Eucharist as God's plan for sustaining us until He returns.

    I would recommend it to anyone who would like to deepen their understanding of the Most Blessed Sacrament or increase their love for God.

    "Father Barron is a great teacher"

    You can never learn enough about the Eucharist. I have read and listen to numerous book on the subject. I always learn something new. This book is good for the lifelong Catholic or someone just wanting to know about the faith.

    Any additional comments?

    Barron's short little book covers the nature of the Eucharist: as meal, sacrifice, and real presence. I enjoyed Barron's Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith, and this book did not disappoint. I knew I was in for something good when Barron referenced Babette's Feast in the introduction. As meal, the Eucharist is inclusive and inviting, bringing all to the table to enjoy the banquet of God's love and grace. As sacrifice, the Eucharist is Christ's body, broken for us as a sign of that overflowing grace. As real presence, the Eucharist is transubstantiation, not only bringing the presence of Christ to us in a very real way but making us into the real presence of Christ in the world. I like how Barron included many different approaches, including film, literature, Scripture, and historical debates in the book. I would recommend this for any Catholic seeking some motivation or anyone curious about Catholicism.

    "Sound Christian Theology for the 21st Century!"

    Fr Robert Barron is a gift to the Christian world. His theology is sound and historically accurate, but he brings complex Christology right up to date for the modern age by using metaphor and language which readers/listeners can relate to. Of course, this is written from a Roman Catholic perspective because that is what Fr Robert is, a Catholic priest, but there is much in this little book which any Christian could find valuable and which enquiring non-believers might be interested in. It's not a long book and that is to it's advantage because in increases it's already impressive accessibility.
