“To Christ and the Church” (Eph. 5:32): The Divine Eucharist as the All-Encompassing Mystery of the Church

   
Nenad S. Milosevic
Edited by Bishop Maxim Vasiljevic
Translated by Fr. Gregory Edwards and Dushan Radosavljevic

Number 13 of Contemporary Christian Thought Series

“With the publication of this volume, English-speaking Orthodox and non-Orthodox Christians alike will have the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the thought and work of Nenad Milosevic, the eminent liturgical scholar and Professor of Liturgics at the Theological Faculty of the University of Belgrade. Through his methodical study of the sources (including a considerable number of liturgical manuscripts and texts and a wide range of patristic and other ecclesiastical writings), his careful analysis of the historical evidence, and his judicious interpretation of the liturgical data, Professor Milosevic provides his readers with facts and insights to help them broaden their knowledge, deepen their understanding, and heighten their appreciation of the sacramental life of the Church, centered—as the title of his work suggests—on the Divine Liturgy, the sacred rite by which the Orthodox Church celebrates the mystery, or sacrament, of the holy Eucharist.”
