The Lord's Supper is the world in miniature.

Look Inside the Book

Within the Lord's Supper we find clues to the meaning of all creation and all history, to the nature of God and the nature of man, to the mystery of the world, which is Christ. It is not confined to the first day, for its power fills seven. Though the table stands at the center, its effects stretch out to the four corners of the earth. This collection includes twenty-eight of theologian Peter Leithart's Eucharistic meditations on the Supper. They are both immensely practical and thick with scriptural themes and interpretation.

What People Are Saying:

"By all appearances, the sheep are hungry for the Bread of Life—given in Word and Sacrament. Peter Leithart has given us fresh reason to taste and see that the Lord is good.” -Michael Horton, Westminster Theological Seminary

"There is a new interest in the Lord's Supper in evangelical churches. Christian pastors and people are realizing that they have neglected sacramental worship to their own loss. But where to begin in restoring the Supper to its rightful place in Christian faith and life? What better place than these delightful, suggestive meditations by Peter Leithart. Here is both the theology and the practice of the Supper in a most attractive form." -Robert Rayburn, Faith Presbyterian Church
