Various questions concerning the presence of Christ in the Lord’s Supper continue to be raised within the Christian church. How really is Christ present there? With his Spirit alone? According to his divine nature exclusively? Are those who commune whisked off to some other space or time like heaven or Christ’s crucifixion 2000 years ago? If Christ is truly present with his body and blood in, with and under bread and wine, how can it be that he also is in heaven, and throughout the world? Even though these questions and many others like them continue to trouble the church, clear, precise and comforting answers were given long ago in this work from Martin Luther, now newly translated into an easily read and digested format. Along with answers to pressing questions concerning the Lord’s Supper, an informative discussion of the various forms of confession and absolution is also included. The modern context of all of these topics is provided in a thorough Afterword by the translator.
Formatted into 16 simple chapters along with study questions, this 96 page book is perfect for personal devotion or Bible study.
