The Meal Jesus Gave Us
Full Product Description
In The Meal Jesus Gave Us, Tom Wright - respected professor of New Testament and early Christian theology, and highly readable author of his For Everyone Bible guides, gives you a short, simple and thoroughly biblical overview of the meaning and purpose of Holy Communion.
Taking a fresh and reverent view of this central practice of the Christian faith, Tom Wright explores the history, symbolism and lasting impact of this sharing bread and wine to the worshipping community and to those beyond your church’s walls.
In this easy to follow revision of his earlier work, and designed to appeal to all ages, the well loved cleric and teacher explains the biblical origins and different ways that Christians have understood The Lord’s Supper over the centuries.
The Meal Jesus Gave Us does not assume any great background knowledge or experience, neither does it bog the reader down in theology or dogma. He does share with you the various interpretations and disputes between church traditions and handles them with sensitivity and compassion.
Reviewing the crucial place of the words and actions of the Eucharist in the Christian life today, Wright poses serious questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter. This easygoing guide to Holy Communion is the ideal introduction for those completely new to the faith and for anyone needing a quick and easy refresher course in its meaning, origins and significance.
The Meal Jesus Gave Us by Tom Wright was published by SPCK in September 2014 and is our 2079th best seller. The ISBN for The Meal Jesus Gave Us is 9780281072965.

'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 just puzzled by it, and many within the church got to Communion from habit but know very little about how it arose or what it means. This is the ideal book 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 Dr Wright has written a book which will speak to all types of Christians and unite them over a subject that so often proves divisive.' - Michael Green, Honorary Fellow, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.
