Commodified Communion: Eucharist, Consumer Culture, and the Practice of Everyday Life

Antonio Eduardo Alonso

(Fordham UP)

Resist! This exhortation animates a remarkable range of theological reflection on consumer culture in the United States. And for many theologians, the source and summit of Christian cultural resistance is the Eucharist. In Commodified Communion, Antonio Eduardo Alonso calls into question this dominant mode of theological reflection on contemporary consumerism. Reducing the work of theology to resistance and centering Christian hope in a Eucharist that might better support it, he argues, undermines our ability to talk about the activity of God within a consumer culture. By reframing the question in terms of God’s activity in and in spite of consumer culture, this book offers a lived theological account of consumer culture that recognizes not only its deceptions but also traces of truth in its broken promises and fallen hopes.

Desire, Darkness, and Hope: Theology in a Time of Impasse

Laurie Cassidy  and M. Shawn Copeland, Eds.

Liturgical Press

For some decades, the work of Carmelite theologian Constance FitzGerald, OCD, has been a well-known secret, not only among students and practitioners of Carmelite spirituality, but also among spiritual directors, spiritual writers, retreatants, vowed religious women and men, and Christian theologians.

This collection sets out to introduce the work of Sister Constance to a wider and more diverse audience–women and men who seek to strengthen themselves on the spiritual journey, who yearn to deepen personal or scholarly theological and religious reflection, and who want to make sense of the times in which we live. To this end, this volume curates seven of Sister Constance’s articles with probing and responsive essays written by ten theologians.

Contributors include:

  • Susie Paulik Babka
  • Colette Ackerman, OCD
  • Roberto S. Goizueta
  • Margaret R. Pfeil
  • Alex Milkulich
  • Andrew Prevot
  • Laurie Cassidy
  • Maria Teresa Morgan
  • Bryan N. Massingale
  • M. Catherine Hilkert, OP
