In this practical book for those who serve the Lord’s Supper, Howard Griffith provides an understanding of the sacrament and twenty-eight pastoral meditations that span both the Old and New Testaments. Spreading the Feast will help students to understand different facets of the Lord’s Supper and pastors to form their own words of explanation and exhortation as they minister at the Table, proving especially helpful to those who celebrate communion frequently.
I have profited greatly from Spreading the Feast. . . . Howard’s treatment is biblically sound, and he opens up rich themes, of which some pastors may be unaware. The book will be very useful for pastors and students of theology. I recommend it highly.

A dip into these pages immediately offered new and helpful thoughts about the Lord’s Supper; a dive into the book has already changed the way in which I celebrate this sacrament with God’s people. If you love the written Word and visible Words of God, this book will be a treat!

Able and edifying. . . . biblically and theologically sound and insightful throughout. Here indeed is a feast for all who value their participation in the sacrament, but especially for pastors, whether beginning or experienced, looking for help in making their own ministering at the Table more meaningful and honoring to the Lord.
