Is the Lord's Supper, a time of communion with our Lord and with his people, a high point in our lives? What thought do we give to biblical teaching on this sacrament? In Given for You Keith Mathison seeks to encourage prayerful reflection and discussion about this now neglected sacrament. He introduces, explains, and defends a particular understanding of the Lord's Supper--a Reformed understanding...The doctrine of the Lord's Supper presented and defended by John Calvin is the biblical doctrine, the basic doctrine of the sixteenth-century Reformed churches, and the doctrine that should be proclaimed in Reformed churches today. In a final chapter on practical issues, Mathison addresses the frequency of communion, the elements to be used, and the practice of paedo-communion.
