Full Product Description
The origins of this are in the Hebrew Bible, its revelatory high-points in Jesus and Paul, and its working out in the life of the Church, especially its Eucharistic Prayers. Special attention will be paid to the atonement, not just because atonement and sacrifice are often synonymous, but also because traditional atonement theology is the source of distortions that continue to plague Christian thinking about sacrifice.
After exploring the possibility of finding a phenomenology of sacrificial atonement in Girardian mimetic theory, the book will end with some suggestions on how to communicate its findings to people likely to be put off from the outset by the negative connotations associated with “sacrifice.”
Robert J. Daly, S.J., Emeritus Professor of Theology at Boston College, is the author of Christian Sacrifice and The Origins of the Christian Doctrine of Sacrifice. His recent articles, mostly in Theological Studies, have focused on Eucharist, sacrifice, and atonement.
