Some Christians struggle with doubts and dread the thought of participating in the Lord’s Supper for fear of taking it unworthily. In this book, Arie Elshout provides tender encouragement to such sensitive souls. Distinguishing between the assurance of faith and the assurance of sense, Elshout reminds us that weak faith is faith nonetheless. Wise pastoral counsel is also given on areas of self-examination and the distinguishing marks of true grace. Here is a helping hand extended to all who are sorry for their sins and take refuge in Christ, and a reminder that the Lord desires to comfort and refresh penitent sinners with the gospel promises of His Table.
The title of this book relates to the manner in which we are to be exercised with the Lord's Supper, and is derived from the words of the Lord Jesus when He instituted ... The words, “This do in remembrance of me,” are a loving command.

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.
In Remembrance of Christ, which is his seventh book, 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 ...

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.
