It is sad that in much of the Christian church the importance of the Lord's Supper has lost its appeal. How soon we forget the great cost of our salvation. This book sets out to stimulate once again a love for the Lord and to emphasise the central role of the remembrance of Him in our lives. Drawing upon Old Testament types and pictures along with studies on the Person of Christ, this is an excellent read for those thinking about obedience to the Lord's request: "Remember Me."

Christianity today is often presented as an emotional experience or a social responsibility. In this, there is a danger that the doctrinal basis of Christianity is neglected. The short studies in this book present the foundation truths of Christianity in a way that can be understood by young people. The book also seeks to stimulate the reader into further study of the Word of God, which is the only way of ensuring that we hold to the faith once delivered to the saints.
