An interesting lecture: “The Real Presence and the Presence of Reality”

January 13, 2018

This is a podcast from the Davenant Institute, with which I am not that familiar, though I do like the general idea.  (It reminds me a little of the Secker Society.)  But this particular lecture, given by Dr. Brad Littlejohn, was given at Hillsdale College.  The notes say that it was focused “on the doctrine of the Eucharistic real presence in the Protestant Reformation. In the lecture, he argued that contrary to many popular narratives and misrepresentations, the Reformed did hold to a kind of real presence of the body and blood of Christ—only not in the elements outwardly considered, rather in the act of faithful reception. Moreover, he argued, they did this precisely to preserve the integrity of the bread and wine as creaturely means of God’s gracious action.”  In some respects it reminds me of Hooker’s thoughts on the Real Presence, so I thought I would mention it.
