Product Description
Why is it important to prepare one’s heart for Holy Communion?

Holy Communion—also known as the Lord’s Supper, service of Word and Table, or Eucharist—is an act of worship that Christians are called to off er to God, Robert Benson states. “This [observance of Communion] is a critical part of our life together,” he notes, so “it seems critically important that we approach this act of praise and thanksgiving with some measure of reverence.”

Benson invites readers to take a fresh look at this central practice of Christian worship. Speaking from the perspective of a fellow worshiper rather than an expert, he traces the history of the Lord’s Supper from its Jewish roots and the time of the early church. He sheds light on the meaning of Holy Communion for individuals, congregations, and the church throughout the world.

Benson’s poetic writing conveys devotion and passion. His down-to-earth style will inspire readers to reflect on the mystery of Jesus’ sacrifice for all people, and how they are called “not just to think about him, but to remember him” each time they partake of the bread and cup.

That We May Perfectly Love Thee includes a guide for small groups, as well as a model for a personal retreat.
