Show Summary Details


This chapter expands on the portrait of Jesus Christ as the face of God that puts a stop to nonvoluntary sacrifices and holds out hope for the redemption of all who suffer, including those who are speechless. Central to the analysis is a defense of the “vegetarian Eucharist”: a reinterpretation of the central ritual of Christianity.

Keywords: Jesus Christ; God; vegetarian Eucharist; Christianity
