In lecture 16, Dr. Trueman continues discussion of Zwingli and the Swiss Reformation. However, the main emphasis is on the Lord’s Supper and the contrast of views among the reformers. Trueman spends much of the time explaining the context in which these men lived and its bearing on their practices and thinking.

This is a fascinating lecture, giving one the tools needed to get into the mind of Luther as he parted ways with Zwingli and others over communion and what it meant for the church. Professor Truman makes the point that if one can die for taking the Lord’s Supper in an inappropriate way, then the Lord’s Supper is a serious thing, not a light thing for us to trivialize.
