What does the Lord’s Supper represent? Who ought to come to it? What should they think about before, during and after the service? These and related questions are answered in this easily-read book. It was written particularly for those who, having professed faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, are coming for the first time to ‘remember’ him at his table. But its heart-warming gospel truth and searching practical directions will also be appreciated by all who seek to obey his command until he comes again.
