The ‘Jesus the Forgiving Victim’ course is frequently best adapted to our own personal needs and also to the state of our knowledge, Michael. As you obviously have a great deal of familiarity with the work of Girard, Williams and Alison and are yourself an experienced teacher you will appreciate how James’s fresh approach and knowledge of scripture is life changing. Other aspects of the course are very elastic and can be helpful or not. Each group adapts the course to its own needs. As you say, this section on the Eucharist is indeed very powerful.
