About the Book

The Breaking of the Bread contains messages on the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion), which resembles the holy of holies in Christian experience. Better for every one of us if our love for that high hour at the communion table were more noteworthy. Better for the church if the blessed fellowship of the presence could cast its spell on present-day life until love feels its praising touch. Christians have discovered a place whose spirit is elevated and gathered by the very idea of the communion, until one purposes that nothing will be allowed to break his trust with his Savior. It is with hope that these communion messages may develop such a mind-set that I am sending them out. If they will coordinate reflection as the heart gets ready for the hour when we meet at the Lord’s table, they will serve to enliven faith and arouse love; if they can by one way or another show his companions in any supportive way what more noteworthy love has done that he ought to be remembered, at that point, these communion messages will fill their need. “And the disciples devoted themselves to . . . breaking of the bread” (Acts 2:42). “On the first day of the week, when we gathered to break bread” (Acts 20:7). It holds a central place in our Christian worship.

About the Author

The Reverend Dr. John Thomas Wylie is one who has dedicated his life to the work of God’s Service, the service of others; and being a powerful witness for the Gospel of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Dr. Wylie was called into the Gospel Ministry June 1979, whereby in that same year he entered The American Baptist College of the American Baptist Theological Seminary, Nashville, Tennessee. As a young Seminarian, he read every book available to him that would help him better his understanding of God as well as God’s plan of Salvation and the Christian Faith. He made a commitment as a promising student that he would inspire others as God inspires him. He understood early in his ministry that we live in times where people question not only who God is; but whether miracles are real, whether or not man can make a change, and who the enemy is or if the enemy truly exists.
