What happens in communion? For centuries, theologians have debated that question. Leithart takes an intriguing look at the typological framework of sacramental theology in this concise collection of essays. He reveals the clues communion holds to the meaning of all creation and history, and skillfully blends technical theological discussions of theology with wonderfully meditative reading. 190 pages, softcover from Canon.

The Lord's Supper is the world in miniature; it has cosmic significance. Within it we find clues to the meaning of all creation and all history, to the nature of God and the nature of man, to the mystery of the world, which is Christ. It is not confined to the first day, for its power fills seven. Though the table stands at the center, its effects stretch out to the four corners of the earth.
