Description


The Bible reveals that the goal of God's saving acts is to establish a new society. The desire of His people for a new society is manifested through their meal practice. The meal has been recognized as a powerful language for the people not only in relation to one another, but also in relation to God. It suggests strong ethical implication as well.
This book discusses how the meal tradition in the particular context of Korea, abridged as Rice is Heaven, is to be reinterpreted in terms of main themes in the biblical meal tradition, summarized as God Jesus] is Bread. This book also contributes some suggestions concerning theology and practice of the Lord's Supper, which the Korean Church, as a particular church, should share with the universal church.
