Product Description

Is the Lord's Supper, a time of communion with our Lord and with his people, a high point in our lives? What thought do we give to biblical teaching on this sacrament? In this book Keith Mathison seeks to "encourage prayerful reflection and discussion about this now neglected sacrament." He introduces, explains, and defends "a particular understanding of the Lord's Supper--a Reformed understanding. The doctrine of the Lord's Supper presented and defended by John Calvin is the biblical doctrine, the basic doctrine of the sixteenth-century Reformed churches, and the doctrine that should be proclaimed in Reformed churches today." In a final chapter on practical issues, Mathison addresses the frequency of communion, the elements to be used, and the practice of paedo-communion.

Publisher's Description

“The primary purpose of this book is to introduce, explain, and defend a particular doctrine of the Lord’s Supper—the doctrine taught by John Calvin and most of the sixteenth-century Reformed confessions. It is the thesis of this book that Calvin’s doctrine of the Lord’s Supper is the biblical doctrine, the basic doctrine of the sixteenth century Reformed churches, and the doctrine that should be reclaimed and proclaimed in the Reformed church today.”

Author Bio

Keith A. Mathison (MA, Reformed Theological Seminary; PhD, Whitefield Theological Seminary) is professor of systematic theology at Reformation Bible College in Sanford, Florida. He is the author of Dispensationalism: Rightly Dividing the People of God? and Postmillennialism: An Eschatology of Hope, among other works.

Editorial Reviews

The best and most comprehensive treatment of the Reformed doctrine of the Lord’s Supper I have ever seen. . . . a genuine ‘must read’ book.
Argues cogently for the liturgical significance of returning to Calvin’s richly nuanced view of the real presence of Christ in the sacrament.
I know of no other book that combines solid research, pastoral concern,polemical edge, and attention to oft-forgotten biblical passages with such skill. Any informed decision an the Supper will need to include the careful reading of this volume.
To my mind, the most thorough and clearest exposition of the evangelical and Reformed view of the Lord’s Supper in recent memory. A ready antidote to many of the ills that threaten historic evangelicalism.
