What People are Saying About This
"Bullard's fresh imagining of how free church observances of the Lord's Supper are means by which God makes the church visibly one invites his readers to 'go further' on the eucharistic path toward the ecumenical future than the Baptist tradition's most creative systematician may have envisioned possible, yet in ways fully consistent with the tradition's distinctive insights . . . a must-read for anyone who dares dream the fulfillment of Christ's prayer for the unity of his church."
Steven R. Harmon

"This book recounts and appropriates serious theological reflection among a number of Baptist theologians aimed at retrieving a sacramental understanding of their tradition and of the Christian life. Scott Bullard's focus on the Eucharist and Christian unity adds to this discussion in a significant way. A book to be welcomed, read, and applied!"
