Item description for Mystery of the Lord's Supper: Sermons by Robert Bruce by T. F. Torrance...

Robert Bruce was one of the most influential and spiritual ministers of the Gospel that Scotland has ever known. Successor to James Lawson and John Knox at St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh, it was his leadership that gave the Reformation in Scotland the stability and permanence it had previously lacked. Modern Scotland, and to a great extent modern America, is the beneficiary of his labors. His famous Sermons on the Sacraments were delivered in 1589. Behind the teaching of Bruce on the Lord's Supper lies a powerful conception of the Person and saving work of Christ. In this work Robert Bruce has left us a legacy, which, in the words of the editor of the 1614 edition, is 'worthy to be written in letters of gold'. This edition of Bruce's work has been translated and edited by Tom Torrance, one of Scotland's most respected theologians of the modern era.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mystery Of The Lord's Supper, The?

An Absolute Classic  Dec 1, 2007
I wish I had discovered this book years ago. Bruce was a powerful theologian and preacher in Scotland. The sermons are from 1589, but if the thought of reading such old sermons concerns you, rest assured. The translation is easy to read, yet the power of his delivery and the truth of his theology shine through.

He does the church a great service in the way he unpacks the relation between the sign (bread & wine) and the thing signified (Christ.) And his pastor's heart is apparent in the way he repeatedly calls for repentant hearts to come to the table to receive spiritual food. Yet his focus remains always on Christ and his finished work on the cross.

If you take communion, if you share in the Lord's Supper, and if you want to understand what you are doing when you eat the bread and wine, then you will be greatly encouraged and strengthened by this book.

If you are a pastor who has the privilege of preaching the Word and distributing the Lord's Supper, you will find in this book heaps of sermon inspiration and clarifying exposition to edify yourself and your flock.
