MODELS OF THE EUCHARIST
Kevin Irwin
Models of the Eucharist outlines how the Eucharist is integral to and integrative of nothing less that the Christian life itself. Its premise is that the liturgy of the Eucharist - especially the post-Vatican II liturgy - should be a primary source for both eucharistic theology and eucharistic spirituality. 
In this book Irwin does what Avery Dulles did for the Church. He "invites readers to approach Eucharist as a present enactment of the paschal mystery and a way of life that challenges us to renew in celebration and in life what it means to be a eucharistic church"

THE LAMB'S SUPPER
The Mass as heaven on earth
Scott Hahn
One of the most original and exciting works of theology to have appeared in recent years! The early Christians' key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament's Book of Revelation. Hahn enables readers to see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the celebration of the Eucharist more enthusiastically and intelligently.
