Mathison's book is a detailed account of Calvin's doctrine of the Lord's Supper, which has been lost in Reformed churches since the late 17th century. Delving into Calvin's writings, Mathison shows the Calvinist "middle" position betweenn Luther and Zwingli. He traces the history of the doctrine, and how it was put aside by many who called themselves Calvinists.

The detail in this book and the research are astounding. However, I do not believe his scriptural discussions prove as much as he or Calvin think. The book gave me pause to think about new ways of looking at the Eucharist, but in the end I remain unconvinced by Calvin's doctrine. ( )
