What Is The Lord's Supper?
In this booklet, Dr. R. C. Sproul cuts through the confusion to define the supper, demonstrate what it means, and show how important it is for the lives of believers and churches.

Recommended reading for anyone desiring a better understanding of the practice: its roots, its observance, its meaning.
