I just received my copy. It is not a very big book, but what is inside is very helpful. As a serving Elder I wish that I a copy of this when I first started serving. The book goes into the history of communion for Disciples of Christ members including thoughts of Alexander Campbell's idea of the basics of what communion represents. The book has communion prayers for both those serving on both the "Bread" and "Wine" side of the Communion Table. There are prayer base on the different special days and seasons of the church, communion hy0mms, and specials occasions. I believe that this book will be a great addition not only to my prayer life, but an excellent resource for new prayers as I serve at the table. I It is a book that both the novice would recommend for both the novice and the experienced Elder.
