Why is it important to prepare one’s heart for Holy

Holy Communion—also known as the Lord’s Supper, service
of Word and Table, or Eucharist—is an act of worship that
Christians are called to off er to God, Robert Benson states.
“This [observance of Communion] is a critical part of our
life together,” he notes, so “it seems critically important that
we approach this act of praise and thanksgiving with some
measure of reverence.”

Benson invites readers to take a fresh look at this central
practice of Christian worship. Speaking from the perspective
of a fellow worshiper rather than an expert, he traces the
history of the Lord’s Supper from its Jewish roots and the time
of the early church. He sheds light on the meaning of Holy
Communion for individuals, congregations, and the church
throughout the world.

Benson’s poetic writing conveys devotion and passion. His
down-to-earth style will inspire readers to refl ect on the
mystery of Jesus’ sacrifi ce for all people, and how they are
called “not just to think about him, but to remember him” each
time they partake of the bread and cup.

That We May Perfectly Love Thee includes a guide for small
groups, as well as a model for a personal retreat.
