   - Lord's Supper

The Lord’s Supper will renew you as you probe its mysteries in Scripture. Sometimes the Lord's Supper can seem boring, repetitious, or practically meaningless, providing a mere sentimental anchor to your faith. But communion or Eucharist or the Mass is more than a formal ritual. It is deeply significant. This book provides meditations on ten of the rich themes that underlie the Lord's Supper. Don’t expect a series of dogmatic propositions, but rather instruction in what the Scriptures themselves teach. While the author shares his own interpretations, he considers alternative understandings with respect. The goal of the book is to so illuminate the rich themes of communion, that the next time – or next 100 times – you serve or partake of the Lord's Supper, you'll recall with joy and love what it really means. In this volume you’ll explore the depths of this wonderful and holy mystery. Whether you’re a pastor or priest, a deacon or member of a religious order, an elder, teacher, or lay leader, you'll find the makings of many sermons and communion meditations here. But hopefully, this book will help you first feed your own soul on the Heavenly Bread and find spiritual nourishment. This book is suitable for both personal and group study in 10 lessons. The discussion questions and participant handouts make it ideal for small groups and adult classes.
