David W. Torrance offers a brief but comprehensive examination of the Reformed doctrine of the Lord’s Supper. He examines the foundations of the sacrament in the five great sacrificial offerings of Israel’s worship, as ordained by God. He then presents a picture of Holy Communion in the New Testament as a feast of thanksgiving commemorating God’s atonement in Christ for the sins of the world, and demonstrates how it is inextricably linked with the Cross, the Resurrection and the Great Commission.
