This Is My Body is a popular apologetic written in terms engaging and accessible to evangelical Protestants. Shea treats standard misconceptions and objections to the teaching on the real presence of Jesus in the sacrament of the Eucharist, showing most to be simple errors in logic or ironic oversights in scriptural exegesis.

Mark P. Shea has contributed articles to the New Oxford Review, the Door, Catholic Digest, and Christianity and Literature, among other periodicals.

What They Are Saying:

“Mr. Shea writes very much in the tradition of C. S. Lewis. . . . If all Christian writers combined . . . clarity and depth as well as Shea does, we would see a great revival in our confused world.”–Peter Kreeft

“Shea’s little book is gigantic in its call to Christ — the Christ who is present in the Eucharist. His Exploration of the Real Presence is penetrating, uplifting, and challenging.”–Dan O’Neill, Mercy Corps International
