Item Description...
Making a Meal of It explores the background and implication of the Lord's Supper. Delving into its historical and Scriptural origins, Witherington argues that the Lord's Supper is a sacramental celebration of the community of God, designed to incorporate people of varying backgrounds. Excavating the diverse ways in which Scripture and early Christian tradition speak about the Lord's Supper, Witherington advocates that the meal is primarily about who the people of God are and how they should thus live together.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Wonderful Little Book  Nov 29, 2007
This is a wonderful little book on the history, meaning, and current theological importance of The Lord's Supper. As someone who owns about 20 of Witherington's books I would rate this one quite highly ... O.K. who am I kidding, I'd rate nearly all of them highly.

Witherington's understanding of social setting and of discourse material are beautifully displayed in his chapter, "The Long Farewell," which explores the relationship of John (or should we say "Lazarus") chapter 13 ff. to the Last Supper and to Holy Week. ... Also notable is his chapter "The Table of the Entitled and the Table of the Lord" - an eyeopening explanation of the church at Corinth's situation around the meal.

"The Mystery of the Meal" is the closing chapter of this book and I found it both a challenging and a beautiful piece to read. It's discussions around "discerning the body" are pastorally helpful and theologically rooted in Ben's knowledge and wisdom displayed earlier in the book. Also, he uses two very moving stories near the end of this chapter (from his own experience), and the names Meltem and Georgio arose in one of my sermons almost as soon as I had finished this wonderful little offering.

This book will not appeal to most Roman Catholic readers - at least that is my impression as a (possibly very ignorant) protestant. But it will appeal to most Christians who want to be challenged and deepened in their appreciation of this central celebration of our faith.

Thank you Ben, for yet another gift to the church of Jesus.
