I have often commented on the Lord’s Supper here as I believe it is an important practice which has fallen on hard times in our churches and has a significant place in pastoral ministry. It was, therefore, an honor and privilege to contribute to Tom Schreiner and Matt Crawford’s edited volume, The Lord’s Supper: Remembering and Proclaiming Christ Until He Comes (table of contents is available at the link). My chapter focuses on issues arising from the practice of communion in the church (e.g., frequency, manner, who can come to the table, etc.).
My hope is that the book will stir up good conversation about communion and help to revitalize our practice. So far, Baptist Press has posted an interview with contributors and Patrick Schreiner has an interview with the editors. Trevin Wax and David Alan Black have reviewed the book.
If you know of other reviews or interactions, feel free to link them in the comments.
UPDATE: Jim Hamilton’s essay is available online.
Thanks Jim! I had forgotten about that! It si great to have this available in this way.
