God and Grace of Body

This chapter presents the author's concluding comments. It explains why the book has sought to place the eucharistic body in the much wider context of how the body in general might mediate the divine. It is argued that it is not just the symbolism associated with bread and wine that affects the sort of experience we have at the altar rail and in the service as a whole, but also the additional assumptions we bring along in respect of our own understanding of body and of Christ's body in particular.
