Chapter 2, Part 4 - The Real Presence (p. 79)
Throughout his adult life Luther always held to the Real Presence. With no biblical argument for a symbolic view he would not change his position. However, he did begin to refuse transubstantiation. The Bible refers to the consecrated bread as bread. Yet Luther did not use the term consubstantiation and it has only been applied to Lutheran doctrine by a few authors. Sasse spends several pages detailing Luther’s arguments for a real, bodily, substantial presence of Jesus’ body and blood in communion.
