Guy Prentiss Waters


How God Communicates His Covenants through Communion What is the meaning of the Lord’s Supper? Jesus instituted the Supper to strengthen the faith of his followers by reminding them of his promises. More than an ancient church tradition or a complex doctrinal controversy, it has practical importance in the lives of Christians today. God has always made promises to his people through covenants, and along with them given signs and meals to point to and confirm his blessings. In The Lord’s Supper as the Sign and Meal of the New Covenant, professor Guy Prentiss Waters defines and explores the unity of the covenants in the Old and New Testaments. Biblical and Theological: Explores covenant meals, which point to God’s provision in Christ Comprehensive: Explains covenant signs, or the ways God appeals to believers through the 5 senses to reveal and reinforce his promises Accessible: Written for laypeople, students, and church leaders of all levels In this short guide, readers recover the practical importance of communion for the family of God and reflect on the meaning of Christ’s words, “Do this in remembrance of me.”
