This is a wonderful, comprehensive, and engaging invitation to deeper understanding of and participation in the Lord's Supper. This will be a most useful book for pastors and congregations. --William H. Willimon, author of Sunday Dinner: The Lord's Supper and the Christian Life
I have been fortunate to hear Dr. Hicks' Come to the Table in oral form. Our church family spent a month studying and implementing it. It has helped many see the Lord's Supper as a joyous community event that focuses on the Risen Christ instead of a solemn and solitary reflection on his death. Instead of silence, there is sharing. Instead of sorrow rooted in gruesome memories, we experience table fellowship and joy. Readers will be challenged. Those who implement its insights will be blessed. --Rubel Shelly, preaching minister, Family of God at Woodmont Hills, Nashville, TN
