“The Otherness of God and the Bodies of Others” by Theresa Sanders

by C.S. Lammer-Heindel

I recently came across the following interesting article, which I will be examining in more depth when time permits:

Theresa Sanders, “The Otherness of God and the Bodies of Others,” The Journal of Religion, Vol. 76, No. 4 (Oct., 1996), pp. 572-587. (Available on JSTOR; requires subscription or institutional access.)

Sanders offers a postmodern account of the real presence and a reaffirmation of the Eucharistic call to meet and care for the other. On both points, her argument seems potentially relevant to those of us interested in dialogue between Christian faith and practice and the new materialist ontologies, such as OOO.
