While Msgr. Irwin is most capable of writing "how to" guides, he shines in his passion of the Eucharist. Thought provoking, humbling and sensitive, he provides the reader a glimpse of the why this meal has such great meaning. While reading Models for the second time, it dawned on me how powerful it is to carry God with me into the world each day.

As an academic, Msgr. Irwin prepares the future of the Church. His great humanity is born from his love of also serving at the parish level whenever possible. His interaction with those of us privileged to hear his homilies also allow us to hear that same homiletic style as he instructs us in the somewhat complex nuances of the Eucharist. You must pay attention to truly enjoy the read.

If you are Roman Catholic or a person interested in the vision Catholics have of the Eucharist, you would be hard pressed to find a better book.

I just finished reading this book a few hours ago and found its treatment of the Eucharist very complete and spiritually inspiring. Irwin disects the mystery of the Eucharist very thoroughly in his ten models, and then relates the various models with each other in a format that can be easily understood by many Catholics. It is food for the mind and soul while at the same time challenging the reader to be more accountable to what one celebrates in the Eucharist.

Kevin Irwin begins his full-orbed approach to the mystery of the eucharist, appropriately, with a metaphor: the eucharist is "the jewel in the crown of Catholicism." This becomes a basis for his multifaceted approach, exploring several of the facets of the jewel, so to speak, with the premise being that no single explanation is sufficient by itself to describe the fullness of what the eucharist is.

Irwin's style is interesting. He likes to use the very Catholic rhetorical maneuver of defending one's views as the most "traditional," and he usually makes a pretty good case. His perspective appears balanced and centered, seeming at times to swing a bit left or a bit right (if one must use such terms), which I suspect is what a good centrist has to do to keep a balance. His frequent emphasis on "both/and" rather than "either/or" (also very Catholic), and on the importance of the impact of liturgy & sacrament on our whole lives, is particularly commendable. I had a few minor quibbles with the book here and there, but that's part of what makes it a good read.

And best of all, reading it makes the whole mass come alive!

I purchased the book as a text for a course. I was very pleasently surprised when the book turned out to be highly reasable and very interesting. For any one especially if they are contimplating the ministry it is very worth while. Also for any Roman Catholic who wants to understand their religon more a very good book
