The Paschal Sacrament
I was at Allen Hall seminary last night for the book launch of a new book by Fr Francis Selman, one of the lecturers there, called A Guide to the Eucharist - the Paschal Sacrament. This book, which is foreworded by Aidan Nichols, O.P., sets out the doctrine of the Real Presence, looking at the New Testament, the Fathers of the Church, Popes, and modern scholars. It includes a good critique of the theology of the reformers and modern theories such as 'Transignification,' and would thus be very useful to preachers, catechists and students. Fr Selman's Guide is published by Oxford-based Family Publications which is now becoming quite prolific as a publisher of good Catholic books. It's worth keeping an eye on its website!
