This work gives a stimulating overview of the history, theology, and practice of the Lord's Supper in denominations that share the common heritage of believers baptism. The essays, first developed for a major conference at Ashland Theological Seminary, discuss sharing the bread and cup, footwashing, and the love feast. Several scholars examine the witness of Scripture and of church history on communion. Others describe the current practice and theology of the Lord's Supper in denominations as varied as Baptist and Quaker, Seventh-Day Adventist and African Methodist Church conferences, beginning in 1967, and their related publications. Here is a rare opportunity to observe the special significance of this sacred ceremony in believers church.
