This book is an excellent collection of 28 short devotional meditations on the Lord’s Supper. Peter Leithart combines his keen insights into Scripture and Reformed theology with a warm and pastoral style to explore the deep significance of the sacrament for the life of the Church. According the Leithart, a biblical worldview places the Table of the Lord at the very center of the universe where all of creation finds its meaning and significance. At the Table, the entire history of the universe is seen in right perspective: created by God, fallen in Adam, redeemed in Christ, and destined for a glorious consummation, the Wedding Supper of Lamb, where God’s people will feast together at God’s Table in eternal joy. This book will help readers better appreciate and cherish the Lord’s Supper as a blessed means of grace; God’s feast whereby he feeds his people with the life-communicating body and blood of Jesus and orients their lives toward Christ’s coming. As Leithart suggests in the introduction, the book’s readings would be put to good use as a part of one’s preparation for communion. Indeed, reading these mediations will certainly whet the appetite for coming to the Table.
