“Having to explain to a Protestant friend that, ‘yes, you can come to Mass with me. But, no, you can’t take communion,’ is, I suspect, a common situation for a Catholic. That the practice of intercommunion, common among many Protestant denominations, has not been extended by Catholics remains something of an ecumenical stumbling block for some. This book explains why this situation must continue.

Cardinal Kasper, a noted theologian even before his elevation, is currently president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. He employs his many years of experience in ecumenical endeavors along with his keen theological intellect to give a clear and complete answer to a complex question. The topics covered include not only the Eucharist, but the nature of the Church and the sacramental priesthood.

Despite being written by a theologian and translated from German original, this book is very readable and accessible to a wide audience. It is recommended for all parish and academic libraries.”
