Mass, Eucharist, Holy Communion, The Lord's Supper, Breaking of Bread—the communal meal stands at the center of worship in most Christian traditions. In this new edition of John Henson's classic, we are again confronted with the question, Have we been doing it right? John Henson suggests that by basing our practice and understanding of communion on the event of the Betrayal Night we have ignored those other occasions when Jesus ate and drank with the people of his day, with the result that we have reversed the intentions of Jesus. These studies challenge us to return to the practice of Jesus and to a joyful, inclusive and bountiful celebration.
