Why Go To Church?
Full Product Description
The Eucharist, writes Timothy Radcliffe, is a three part drama, forming us in faith, hope and love. In this book he examines what it means to celebrate the Eucharist. Whilst other people experience it as boring and pointless, listening to the readings, the homily and the creed all take us through the crises and challenges of faith. From the offertory through to the end of the Eucharistic prayer we are caught up in the hope that was Christ's, faced with Good Friday. From the Our Father until we are sent on our way, especially in receiving communion, we are formed as people who are capable of love.
Why Go To Church? by Timothy Radcliffe was published by Continuum in December 2008 and is our 14127th best seller. The ISBN for Why Go To Church? is 9780826499561.

Why Go To ChurchMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is a fantastic book, intelligent, articulate and rooted – the only problem some might have, given it is the Archbishop of Canterbury’s 2009 Lent Book, is that it is rooted in catholic tradition and based around the Eucharist. For some this will make it a little inaccessible. However it is a very well written and engaging book that accesses not just the eucharist tradition but the concept of community, of being church, of what it really means, or should mean, to participate. This really is a book that is perfect for Lent because it makes you think about the traditions of the church and about the activity of being Christian and participating in the ritual journey. Well worth reading for anyone who wants to consider what it means to be part of a community.
