Given for you
Communion Past And Present
Jesus gave us communion to be a central part of our Christian lives. Yet we often struggle to understand it and to give it a meaninful place. It can easily become mere ritual. In Given for you Eleanor Kreider shows that this need not be the case. Much can be learned from the riches (and mistakes) of Christian history, and much can be done in the ways we celebrate communion today. She calls for a renewed unity of Word and Eucharist in Christian worship that recaptures its meal character and truly forms the church in the image of Christ. This book provides fresh and engaging material for pastors, teachers, worship-planners and leaders. Its graceful vision of the Lord's Supper as the central communal act of Christian worship will help the church flourish in an individualist and selfish age.
