by John Mark Hicks
Christian practice of the Lord's Supper is radically dissimilar from the the silent, solemn, individualistic eating of bread crumbs and drinking sips of wine that many churches practice today.
Instead, says Hicks, our practice of the supper should be a joyous communal meal as it was in earliest Christianity. The contemporary practice of the suppers needs to be "revisioned" according to biblical values.
Combining careful Bible study with gentle, practical suggestions, this book provides a valuable resource for enriching and renewing a central practice of Christian faith.
