Praise for The Lord's Supper as a Means of Grace:
"It is good to be able to recommend this book in which Baptist pastor and theologian Richard Barcellos, reclaims the Lord's Supper as a means of grace and argues for its significance in the life of the local congregation. it is to be hoped that this book will have a significant influence in encouraging us all to think more carefully about the role of the Supper."
