The Mystical Presence And The Doctrine of the Reformed Church on the Lord’s Supper

The Mystical PresenceIn this work, Nevin’s original text is preserved “while providing extensive introductions, annotations, and bibliography to orient the modern reader and facilitate further scholarship.”  In a day when so many neglect sacramental theology, Nevin restores a Calvinian view of the Lord’s Supper, and provides a strong rebuke to the revivalism of the 19th century, and the undoing of this sacramental Reformational emphasis even in this century.

Peter Leithart writes about this book:

“Over a century ago, John Williamson Nevin planted an exotic seed in the ground of American Protestantism . . . [He] cultivated a high-church, liturgical and sacramental Protestantism that starkly contrasted with and sharply challenged the populist revivalism around him . . . By launching this excellent new edition of Nevin’s works, Brad Littlejohn and his colleagues give us hope that it is finally time for the dead seed to grow into a tree. May it bear much fruit.”
