The Lord's Supper

The Lord's Supper

This new release of Martin E. Marty's classic book on Holy Communion features a new study guide to help individual readers and study groups ponder the meaning of this Christian sacrament.

In his personal and inviting voice, Marty describes the origins of Holy Communion and the important role this sacrament has played throughout the history of the Christian church. By expressing the thoughts of Christians as they prepare for church, as they listen to the pastor's sermon, and as they receive the sacrament, the author captures the powerful meaning of the Lord's Supper. "The body and blood of Christ in the Lord's Supper are the body and blood of Christ on the cross," Marty writes. "The cross was for you, and so is the Supper."
