Eating and Drinking with God (Paperback)
In the Lord’s Supper, Jesus calls His Church to a bountiful feast. Yet we may still have questions or reservations as the bread and wine are served on Sunday morning. Is this practice truly biblical? How should it be administered? Should I participate, or refrain?
If you wish to better appreciate the Lord’s Supper, this book was written for you. May you grow to desire the Supper more, miss it more earnestly when it’s not available, and long more zealously to participate in the wedding supper of the Lamb, to which our present Supper humbly points.

"This is a fantastic exploration of one of the Bible’s richest themes. With all the fears and anxieties surrounding us today, people need hope. There’s no better one than the promise of eating and drinking with God. Please read and re-read this book!"
— Michael Horton, J. G. Machen Professor of Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
"More than offering biblical answers to common questions surrounding the Lord's Supper, Ken Golden's new book instills in his readers a desire to be at the meal, and to be there often. After all, it is food for the hungry heart and drink for the thirsty soul. Eating and Drinking with God is a delight itself, but more importantly it is an invitation to the greatest feast imaginable. Come, taste and see that the Lord is good!"
— Jonathan Landry Cruse, pastor, author, The Christian's True Identity, Hymns of Devotion, and What Happens When We Worship
"Christians sometimes have a tough time understanding and explaining the Lord’s Supper. This a big topic that has been discussed vigorously throughout church history. That is why I recommend Ken Golden’s book Eating and Drinking with God. It’s a readable, Reformed, and biblical summary of the doctrine of the Lord’s Supper. This book is one I’ll point to when people ask for an introductory resource on the sacrament of the Supper."
—Shane Lems, pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church (Hammond, WI) and author of The Doctrines of Grace: Student Edition
