For 2000 years, Christians have pondered Jesus' words at the Last Supper and, in thanksgiving, Christians of almost all persuasions do take bread and sometimes wine, bless it and share it. This practice has profoundly influenced our culture, and it remains provocative—to religious, intellectual and social action and thought.
Encounter speaks with ordinary believers, philosophers and more in a special report on encountering Christ through the Eucharist.
