About the Book

          Confession and Communion — can there be any more important aspects in the Christian life?  Indeed, our communion with God requires that we first confess our sins.  But to whom should we confess our sins?  And what is the basis through which we can be forgiven?  Before partaking of the communion elements, what does the Scripture mean by "examining" ourselves?  And do we simply partake in remembering Christ, or are we also receiving Him — and perhaps even re-presenting His sacrifice? These and many other questions are answered in this book.

         This book is unique in the following ways:

1. This book offers a thoroughly biblical understanding of all New Testament passages that relate to the Christian ordinance of communion and the practice of confession.

2. This book challenges unbiblical teachings and practices on these two subjects.

3. The two subjects of confession and communion are interrelated to each other in this book in a way that is not presented in any other book.

       Would you like your life to be characterized as a life of confession to God and communion with God?  If so, this book is for you!
