Nothing is more central to Christian practice than Holy Communion. Yet, curiously enough, little attempt is made to explain it. So many outside the Christian community are puzzled by it, and many within the Church go to Communion from habit but know very little about how it arose or what it means. This book is ideal for both types of reader. It is written by one of the foremost New Testament scholars in the world, who has the enviable ability to write with engaging charm . . . Best of all, Professor Wright has written a book that will speak to all types of Christians and unite them over a subject that so often proves divisive.

N. T. Wright

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”

    This is an easy to read book that aims to give a basic understanding of Holy Communion - and I believe it achieves that. As a Lutheran Pastor, I do feel that the Author leans a little too strongly to the Anglican approach - however he is an Anglican Bishop so that is to be expected - and should not dissuade anyone from reading this. I enjoy having gentle challenges, and I do think the Author is being gentle. In the last chapter, the Author does offer some interesting challenges: that those who are "ordained" / "appointed" should be the ones presiding over Communion; that it should be restricted to baptised Christians (not as a secret thing though); that children should be included; and that Communion should be sought across Denominational barriers. Wow, he does leave a lot to think about in this last chapter, and probably would've been nice to give some references so that the reader could read more on these topics. Worthwhile read for all Christians :)

    I bought this yesterday thinking I could use the "send to kindle" function, but that option doesn't seem to be available. Why is this? Will it be available for this resource in the future? And are customers going to be notified before they purchase books whether they are able to be sent to kindle?
