In Remembrance of Christ challenges Christians to live sacrificially in view of who Christ is and what He meant when He adjourned His disciples to do this in remembrance of Me. Such attitudinal understanding will help Christians to live a more overcoming life, especially in the areas of obedience, forgiveness, sacrifice, and holiness. Remembering a person helps us to relate to, and reflect on, the persons beliefs, philosophies, legacies, contributions and achievements in life. It also helps us to aspire to live up to those values the individual believed in during his or her lifetime. This book will also direct our attention to other ramifications of Christs death, the importance of His blood, divine healing, feeding His sheep, proclaiming His death etc. Chapter 1 introduces readers to the general world of remembrances, highlighting key historical world and American personalities, landmarks and memorials, and showing how Jesus legacy is the only one that has eternal and all-inclusive values in comparison. Chapter 2 discusses divine healing aspect of Jesus passion from the perspective of it being one of the key benefits of Gods children when we remember Him as He commanded. Chapter 3 discusses the subject of sacrificial forgiveness as a practice Christians should engage in from two key perspectives: forgiveness as God gave it to mankind, and forgiveness as we must give it to our neighbors. Chapter 4 delves into the subject of loving Jesus more than these as addressed to Peter in John chapter 21. The topic of feeding Gods sheep is discussed in chapter 5. Chapter 6 is designed to show readers that there are other areas of life in which we can remember Jesus as living sacrifices. Chapter 7 is designed for all persons who desire to receive Christ as their Lord and Savior.

"Do This in Remembrance of Me" is a fifty two week devotional written to transform Communion from a “religious ritual” into a powerful experience with God. The truths in this book are designed to accompany you to the “Lord’s Table” with the potential to liberate you from guilt, shame, sickness, and disease. The Lord’s Supper will become a meal for your hungry soul. The weekly lessons will feed your faith and deposit the knowledge of the blood covenant within you. You will grow in the knowledge of your God-given inheritance and you will stand in awe of Jesus Who laid down His life for you. You will give Jesus His rightful place of preeminence at the head of the Communion table. Do This in Remembrance of Me takes you on a journey through the wonders of salvation. It is a diamond that reflects the different angles of the great salvation that Jesus made available for you through the shedding of His blood and His sacrifice on Calvary as your substitute. It is written to bless you and to cultivate a heart and attitude of thanksgiving. You will experience joy in your life—a byproduct of a greater understanding of the words of Jesus. “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” (1 Corinthians 11:25 NKJV)
Remembrance. of. Me”. EVERYTIME. WE partake of Communion, our minds must be engaged with accuracy. We are not thinking about the clutter in life's kitchen. As often as we sit down at this table, we do so in remembrance of Jesus.

Bryan Spinks is one of the world’s leading scholars in the field of liturgy and to have a comprehensive work by him on the Eucharist is a major catch for SCM. Like the author’s previous work on Baptism, this will become a standard work about the Eucharist and Eucharistic theology worldwide. The book, a study of the history and theology of the Eucharist, is the fifth volume in the SCM Studies in Worship and Liturgy series and will help to establish the series as a place for landmark books of liturgical scholarship.
wine is withdrawn and these become bearers of Christ's gift of himself – 'Take and eat, this is my body.' Christ's gift of himself, however, is not ultimately directed towards bread and wine, but towards the faithful.
