This is a great book, I'm so glad I found it. Some blessed soul bothered to copy this and make it public...it had to be God inspired!
It provides insight into what it means to believers, that Jesus became our perfect sacrifice, by explaining communion's symbolism and how Jesus death on the cross is meant to be of immense benefit to us...if we but gain understanding of it. Yet it is practical, simple and straightforward. I have found many of the old authors books tend to be packed with truth and depth but a bit hard to read due to the language...but this book happily is actually an easy read.
It will help you greatly in self correction. It has insights and angles that are so obvious, but seem to be lost to us in today's world. It will help you identify those annoying unGodly habits you have and nip them in the bud. The bible says we don't receive health because we take communion unworthily. Don't you want to know what that means? Communion is a supernatural act of oneness with Christ, not to be taken lightly, and to be seen as the ultimate opportunity to get to know the Savior intimately. He gave it to us, we ought to strive to understand it, and better than that, to experience its holiness. I don't know why this isn't preached...
Unless you are already perfect, you need to read and chew on this book. It should be required reading for every believer as "Communion 101". At least that's my not so humble opinion.
