About-

This work gives a stimulating overview of the history, theology, and practice of the Lord’s Supper in denominations that share the common heritage of believers baptism. The essays, first developed for a major conference at Ashland Theological Seminary, discuss sharing the bread and cup, footwashing, and the love feast.

Several scholars examine the witness of Scripture and of church history on communion. Others describe the current practice and theology of the Lord’s Supper in denominations as varied as Baptist and Quaker, Seventh-Day Adventist and African Methodist Church conferences, beginning in 1967, and their related publications.

Here is a rare opportunity to observe the special significance of this sacred ceremony in believers church.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Ashland Seminary is to be commended for their success in planning an event of this quality and breadth. It worthily extends the work of the conferences on the concept of the believers church by attracting contributions from a wider constituency and tackling for the first time one of the basic themes of ecclesiology. This conversation opens well the new study needed to free our understanding of the Lord’s Supper from the shackles imposed on it by the ‘substance’ debates among the official churches during the Reformation.”

—John H. Yoder, University of Notre Dame

“This book carries an exciting message. It centers on the way in which the common table is a sign of the corporate nature of the Christian life—corporate both spiritually and practically. This witness is redemptive in an individualistic and broken world, as well as in the lives of those formed by the common life.”

—Franklin H. Littell, Richard Stockton College of New Jersey
