Item description for Grace and Gratitude: The Eucharistic Theology of John Calvin by B. a. Gerrish...

This book is the first major study of Calvin's doctrine of the Lord's Supper in 25 years and the first attempt to show the eucharistic shape of Calvin's entire theology. The systematic character of Calvin's theology rests on his consistent understanding of God as Father and foundation of good and his conception of the Gospel as the message of free adoption.

Reviews - What do customers think about Grace and Gratitude: The Eucharistic Theology of John Calvin?

Excellent overview of Eucharistic issues in Calvin's writing  Apr 3, 2005
Whether or not you have encountered the work of John Williamson Nevin, Keith Mathison, Ronald Wallace, or Robert Letham on recovering the Calvinistic view of the Lord's Supper, you definitely want to add this too your reading list if you are at all willing to be challenged from a Reformed perspective. While I can't speak for Gerrish's personal theological commitments, his honesty, even-handedness, and thoroughness make this an essential work, whether as a first book or as follow-up and further reflection.

Gerrish tackles the controversies surrounding Calvin's view of the Lord's Supper by showing that his theology is "eucharistic" from beginning to end. For Calvin, God is a fountain of all good so that the sum of piety is living by grace and gratitude. God is a loving Father and the Gospel is a message of free adoption. Adoption naturally leads us into a household where we ae fed at the family table having been received in baptism (this is way over-simplifying due to brevity; Gerrish's gift is in bringing out real themes while admitting complexity in the data).

I can't recommend this enough and am gratified (no pun intended) that this work is back in print. Take advantage of it. If this is the first time you've become acquainted with the Protestant heritage regarding the Lord's Supper, consider moving on to the other writers mentioned above. Some are Evangelicals and some are not, but all are worth reading for what they expose us to in our Evangelical heritage.
