"Pastor Accola expands and broadens our understanding of the many dimensions of receiving the gift of grace in Holy Communion. Too often we have limited this sacrament to forgiveness. While forgiveness is central, this book points to further divers riches of eucharist that are indeed the living bread and hope for the world."
– Mons A. Teig, Professor Emeritus of Worship, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN

"Pastor Accola has written a clear, unpretentious reflection on the Lord's Supper. Drawing on a lifetime of pastoral experience, he invites us into a gracious, many-faceted exploration of this Sacrament. Given for You is a gift for seekers and mature Christians alike."
– Rick Foss, Bishop, Eastern North Dakota Synod of the ELCA
