Product Description

It's the central sacrament of the church---so why do various denominations view and practice communion so differently? Exploring the major positions on this important question, Armstrong looks at the beliefs of four respected contributors who defend their stands on memorialism (Baptist); spiritual presence (Reformed); consubstantiation (Lutheran); and transubstantiation (Roman Catholic). 208 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

Publisher's Description

Who should participate in the Lord’s Supper? How frequently should we observe it? What does this meal mean? What happens when we eat the bread and drink from the cup? What do Christians disagree about and what do they hold in common? These and other questions are explored in this thought-provoking book. This new volume in the Counterpoints: Church Life series allows four contributors to make a case for the following views: • Baptist view (memorialism) • Reformed view (spiritual presence) • Lutheran view (consubstantiation) • Roman Catholic view (transubstantiation) All contributors use Scripture to present their views, and each responds to the others’ essays. This book helps readers arrive at their own conclusions. It includes resources such as a listing of statements on the Lord’s Supper from creeds and confessions, quotations from noted Christians, a resource listing of books on the Lord’s Supper, and discussion questions for each chapter to facilitate small group and classroom use.

    While the book provides us with historical and theological understandings of Holy Communion, the Baptist view in this book is wrong. While many Baptists today hold to memorialism, the early Baptists held the Calvinist view of the spiritual presence as set forth in Scripture. Check out the London Baptist Confession.
