"Celebrating the Lord's Supper," says award-winning author and theologian J. Todd Billings, "can change lives."
In this book Billings shows how a renewed theology and practice of the Lord's Supper can lead Christians to rediscover the full rich-ness and depth of the gospel. Drawing on a broad range of insights from within and beyond the Reformed tradition, he develops a vibrant, biblical, and distinctly Reformed sacramental theology and explores how it might apply within a variety of church contexts, from Baptist to Presbyterian, nondenominational to Anglican.
At once strikingly new and deeply traditional, Remembrance, Communion, and Hope will surprise and challenge readers, inspiring them to a new understanding of-and appreciation for-the embodied, Christ-disclosing drama of the Lord's Supper.
J. Todd Billings (Th.D., Harvard Divinity School) is associate professor of Reformed theology at Western Theological Seminary, Holland, Michigan, and an ordained minister in the Reformed Church in America.
