A Sacramental Scoop

I have just been tipped off that Jon Payne and the chaps at Tolle Lege Press are reaching the final stages of a very secret publishing venture: a near 1,000 page tome by Hughes Oliphant Old on the Lord's Supper in the Reformed tradition.  I remember a decade ago causing a near riot at an Anglican college in the UK when I gave a lecture expounding the Book of Common Prayer's theology of the Lord's Supper and highlighting it as a much neglected element in the arsenal of pastoral care. I had carelessly forgotten than Anglican evangelicalism by and large defines itself as not being Tractarian and thus as downplaying the role of the Lord's Supper (and baptism) in the church.  Old's book looksOld on Communion.jpg set to rectify that position, reminding us all how important the Lord's Supper is for believers and as a pastoral tool.   The work is vast in scope, discussing the Supper from the beginnings of the Reformation to Jean-Jacques von Allmen.    I have only seen the introduction and table of contents but imagine this will be a very important book for Reformed pastors to have on their shelves.
