The Eucharist and Social Justice

The Eucharist and Social Justice, written by Margaret Scott, acj, convincingly makes the argument that the Eucharist is deeply political and potentially subversive. It explores some of the many different aspects of the inseparable relationship between Eucharist and social justice. Making ample use of the Eucharistic texts, which are pregnant with meaning and which embrace a whole host of social issues around poverty and injustice, the book teases out their wider implications. It also rediscovers the dimension that God intended for the Eucharist: To be the life of the world.
