Here you stand, wondering what the Lord’s Supper is all about. Well, let us introduce you to the latest addition to the Lutheranism 101 family!
LUTHERANISM 101: THE LORD’S SUPPER examines what Scripture and the Confessions have to say about Jesus’ gift of His true body to eat and His true blood to drink.
What Lutherans believe and teach about the Lord’s Supper makes us distinct from all other Christians. We believe the Lord’s Supper is a life-giving blessing given by God to the Church. It is a miracle in bread and wine established by the God-man Jesus Christ.
Using the same conversational style and design as Lutheranism 101, THE LORD’S SUPPER gives
• An overview of Jesus’ teaching regarding the Lord’s Supper
• A discussion of problems that happen when some either don’t believe what Scripture says about His Supper, or try to say more than Scripture says
• A discussion of how belief in who Jesus is affects what we believe about the Sacrament and what we receive.
Each chapter concludes with several questions that can be used to further the study and the discussion about the material. For those who may be leading a group discussion based upon the chapter, and for those individuals who want to check their answers against the author’s comments, a free downloadable guide is available online at lutheranism101.com.
What Others are Saying
This book is beautifully written and edited. I intend on using it the next time I teach my congregation about the Lord’s Supper. It gives everything a person could possibly need to know about the Lord’s Supper in nice bite-sized chunks.
