A call to a renewed hunger and thirst for the Lord's Supper, this book unfolds a historic Reformed understanding in contrast to other views. Building on careful biblical analysis, Robert Letham explains why we have the Supper, how we partake of Christ in it, who should take communion, and related matters.
Clearly written, this little book should encourage and challenge its readers--church officers, lay persons, study and discussion groups--to a better understanding of, and, much needed today, a higher regard for the blessings spread before the church at the table of the Lord.--Richard B. Gaffin Jr., Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary
In their legitimate interest in preaching and the Word, American Presbyterians have never been known for having a well-developed sacramental theology or for giving the sacraments a central place in worship. Robert Letham begins to reformed this fault in this very effective introduction to the sacrament of the Lord's Supper. Accessible for laymen and laywomen, it should also be read by pastors and elders.--D.G. Hart
