KIRKUS REVIEW

We have in this book a series of short expositions of the meaning of Holy Communion. The author is writing for the ordinary church member not for theologians, the elergy or theological students. He is concerned that church people so often regard Communion as a mere form and ceremony with little conception of its true and deeper meaning. He would have them avoid regarding the Sacrament as simply a sacred tradition or as a more memorial or as a display of mysterious magic. He presses back into what must have been in the mind of Christ in saying ""This do in remembrance of me"", and he concludes that he designated this celebration to be an ever recurring appointment with God, His is to be made vivid. The author writes as an Anglican and a Pret. A very helpful book to put in the hands of the laity in preparation for the Lord's
