Publisher's Description

Lord's Supper. Eucharist. Communion. Sacrament. Ordinance. While it's the meal that should unite us as followers of Christ, it sometimes appears we can't even agree on what to call it, let alone how we might share a common theological view of its significance. Even if we cannot reach full agreement, how can we better understand one another and this central observance of the Christian faith? Gordon Smith has invited five representatives of differing views within Christian tradition. Each holds his or her views with conviction and makes the case for that tradition. Each responds to the other views with charity, highlighting significant areas of agreement and disagreement. The views and contributors include
  • The Roman Catholic View--Brother Jeffrey Gros, F.S.C., Professor of Church History, Memphis Theological Seminary, Memphis, Tennessee
  • The Lutheran View--John R. Stephenson, Professor of Historical Theology, Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary, St. Catherines, Ontario
  • The Reformed View--Leanne Van Dyk, Academic Dean and Professor of Reformed Theology, Western Theological Seminary, Holland, Michigan
  • The Baptist View--Roger E. Olson, Professor of Theology, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Waco, Texas
  • The Pentecostal View--Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California
Here's a book that offers more light than heat on an important topic.

Editorial Reviews

What this volume does well is to show how within each tradition there is real overlap and points for conversation. This is a great introductory volume.
The Lord's Supper: Five Views contains a wealth of important information, especially in regards to the history of each position.
I think any layperson with an interest in comparing various views of the Lord's Supper without having to read 5 systematic theology texts will be well served by this book.
I wish I had had this book years ago when I moderated a wide-spred e-mail discussion group that focused on the meaning of Holy Communion. . . . In the end, it makes for an insightful look into a major sacrament that has divided Christianity for centuries. This would be a great study book for church groups.
