Summary When it comes to the sacraments, the church has often been--and remains--divided. Can we still gather together at the same table? Based on lectures from the 2017 Wheaton Theology Conference, this volume brings together the reflections of Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox theologians, who consider what it means to proclaim the unity of the body of Christ in light of the sacraments.
