review Blessed Are the Hungry: Meditations on the Lord's Supper 103 The Lord s Supper is the world in miniature; it has cosmic significance Within it we find clues to the meaning of all creation a. After finishing Defending Constantine I sat down with another book by Peter Leithart Blessed are the Hungry Meditations on the Lord s Supper I originally intended to use Dr Leithart s meditations as devotional material but I found that I couldn t put the book down and finished it in a few daysThe majority of the book is a series of prolonged meditations on various aspects of the Lord s Supper Dr Leithart draws on Ancient Near Eastern religions Greek philosophy and other historical material in order to highlight the uniue character of Israel s God and explain how these things inform our view of the Lord s Supper Most of his meditations are typological pointing to some aspect of Israel s history being fulfilled in the Christian rite At the end of the book he includes an academic article originally written for the Westminster Theological Journal entitled The Way Things Really Ought To Be Eucharist Eschatology and Culture As the reader progresses through this book he will soon realize that arguments about the substance of the bread and wine that have divided the Church for centuries are not present Rather Leithart focuses on the event of the Supper instead of the individual elements In the closing essay the reason for this is made clear For many years the Church has focused on the Lord s Supper through a zoom lens looking only at the elements on the altar and not seeing the Lord s Supper as an act performed by Christ s body The Eucharist is not merely the physical elements but the performative act as well demonstrating in miniature the way the world ought to be It is an eschatological vision of the wedding feast of the Lamb and the meal of Christian unity Though a discussion of the elements may be helpful and Leithart doesn t mind mentioning offhand that he is after all a Protestant it is not the major focus of the event I think Leithart would wholeheartedly agree with St Augustine s summary If you want to know what the body of Christ is you must listen to what the apostle Paul tells the faithful Now you are the body of Christ and individually you are members of it If that is so it is the sacrament of yourselves that is placed on the Lord s table and it is the sacrament of yourselves that you are receiving You reply Amen to what you are and thereby agree that such you are You hear the words The body of Christ and you reply Amen Be then a member of Christ s body so that your Amen may accord with the truth Because of Leithart s focus the book would be eually appropriate for a Roman Catholic an Anglican a Lutheran or a Christian of any other denominational persuasion He even uotes the Archbishop of Canterbury Eastern Orthodox writers and others in his meditations and essay For a book on the Lord s Supper that seeks to be ecumenical in the best non liberal sense of the word Blessed are the Hungry is a gem
