Author and apologist Joe Heschmeyer (Pope Peter, The Early Church Was the Catholic Church) first tackles eucharistic disbelief with a clear and concise defense of the ancient Christian teaching of the Real Presence. He shows how this teaching, rooted in Christ’s own scriptural promises, is where the evidence leads us — not to sentimental or “spiritual” notions of a merely symbolic presence, but to the plain confession that it is really Him.
With that foundation laid, Heschmeyer then shows how Catholics shouldn’t just stop at belief in the Eucharist — we must come to see the entirety of our Christian faith, life, and worship through its lens. Today, as on the road to Emmaus, the key to seeing Jesus is found in the breaking of the bread.
“There are many excellent works of eucharistic apologetics out there, showing how the Real Presence is biblical and credible” says Todd Aglialoro, director of publishing for Catholic Answers Press in San Diego. “But The Eucharist Is Really Jesus does more than argue for one Catholic doctrine in isolation: it demonstrates how the Eucharist is the master-doctrine that aligns the whole Faith in a beautiful, coherent whole.”
Joe Heschmeyer is a veteran author and staff apologist for Catholic Answers.
