An ongoing issue for clergy as well as Christians in general is how to approach New Testament narratives about the crucifixion of Jesus in relation to Jews, Judaism, and the horrific events of the Holocaust. The popular movie "The Passion of the Christ" has brought one aspect of this problem into widespread public attention. The events of Holy Week pose particular challenges for clergy and congregations. In this book Henry Knight helps us deal with Holy Week texts in light of our post-Holocaust world and provides practical examples of prayers, liturgies, and resource material to help pastors prepare for and lead worship and teach during this important time in the life of a congregation.

In "The Bread of Life," Ron Byars provides a clear and concise understanding of what the Lord’s Supper means for Presbyterians. His fresh insights explain the significance of the words we hear and pray when we come to the Lord’s Table, why the Lord’s Supper is a celebration of thanksgiving that extends beyond these words, and why this joyful feast compels us to look toward God’s promised future. This immensely helpful guide, which includes questions for individual reflection or group discussion, is ideal for church school classes and new member classes eager to learn the biblical, theological, and practical aspects of the Lord’s Supper.
