Reviews - What do customers think about The Lord's Supper is a Celebration of Grace: What the Bible Teaches about Communion?
Author looks at communion from a reverent perspective Dec 13, 2000
All too often, those who partake of the Lord's Supper do so casually, often forgetting that not only does the Lord despise vain repetition, but also that the Lord's table is not to be approached casually at all. Pastor Keddie in this book explains exactly why. He reminds us that in 1 Cor. 11 Paul warned the Corinthian church to avoid "eating and drinking judgment" on themselves and that they ought to have a discerning heart when approaching the Lord's table. The Lord's Supper is intended only for believers and Pastor Keddie reminds us that the church is to guard against those outside the visible body.
Jesus Christ instituted the Supper as a means of communion with him and with fellow believers. It's a witness to the world that we believe that Christ lived, died and will come again, in power and in glory.
If you're looking for a treatment of the Lord's Supper that is sincere and thought provoking, but above all Biblical, then read this book.
Finally, I only rated the book 4 stars because, well, we're never perfect in this life!
