Gordon Smith examines the Lord's Supper through the lens of seven words arising out of New Testament passages to give Christians a deeper appreciation of this holy meal:

  • remembrance
  • communion
  • forgiveness
  • covenant
  • nourishment
  • anticipation
  • eucharist (thanksgiving)

If you love biblical history, you will more than likely enjoy this book as Smith leads you through the history of "a holy meal."
