To round out this summer of theological reprints we’ve published a completely new and re-typeset edition of Darwell Stone’s classic volume on the Holy Communion. This is a companion volume to his book, Holy Baptism, and A.C.A. Hall’s book on Confirmation—all volumes from the Oxford Library of Practical Theology. A century ago Stone was one of the great authorities on the history of the doctrines and practises surrounding the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. Several years earlier he had written a weighty two-volume work on the history of the doctrine of the Sacrament. In 1902 and 1903 he also wrote a series of article for the Church Quarterly Review on the subject. In this book Stone makes his expertise more accessible as he works his way through the biblical teaching on the Sacrament, then makes his way through the doctrine and practises of the Patristic and Mediaeval periods. He discusses at length the controversies of the Reformation, both on the Continent and especially in England. He also discusses the practical implications of the Sacrament for the Christian life.
