The Eucharist by Trent Horn “lays out the biblical evidence for Christ’s Real Presence, explains how the Church understands and administers the sacrament of Holy Communion, and helps you deepen your own appreciation for this most precious sign of CHrist’s enduring presence in the world.” This is another book from the 20 Answers Challenge from Catholic Answers.

This is yet another great addition to the 20 Answers series. Horn starts the booklet by addressing oppositions to the Real Presence ranging from misunderstandings from Protestants to accusations like consuming the Eucharist is cannibalism. He then explains some practices surrounding the Eucharist and concludes with how Catholics can show a greater devotion to the Eucharist. What I really liked about this booklet was it provided insight both from an apologetics standpoint and from the perspective of a faithful Catholic seeking to better appreciate this beautiful gift. As with other works by Horn, his points are well-supported with evidence from Scripture, the early church, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  The responses in this book were written clearly and intelligently. My one criticism is there were a few sentences where it seemed like there was an extra word or two. These are incredibly minor errors and do not detract from the overall readability of this booklet. I recommend this booklet to any Christian, Catholic or non-Catholic, because there is content anyone can benefit from.
