The Lord’s Supper is the World

Peter Leithart begins his delightful Blessed are the Hungry by observing that “the Lord’s Supper is the world in miniature…within it we find clues to the meaning of all creation and all history, to the nature of God and the nature of man, to the mystery of the world, which is Christ.” If this is true–and I assume it is biblically and historically valid–then could the reason so much of evangelicalism despises the Church and confines this sacred feast to utter insignificance stem from the forsaking of this glorious mystery? As Mathison rightly concludes, “nature determines frequency.”
