Ever since the night Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper, this sacrament has played a central role in the faith and practice of the church. That is why it is odd that many believers think so little of the Lord's Supper.
"They seldom observe it and assign to it little significance," Phillips writes. "They derive no assurance, and seek no grace, as they receive from the Lord's Table. How remarkable this is!"
The goal of this booklet is to help readers understand the biblical institution of this sacrament, the theological issues surrounding it, and the pastoral considerations for administering and receiving it.
