When C.H. Spurgeon spoke at communion meetings they were often times of great solemnity, sometimes of rejoicing, but always times when God's presence was at work within the hearts of the assembled congregation.
You, too, may have felt the thrill of God moving in your heart, or had the experience of meeting with him at a time of worship. You can experience such times again as you read this collection of the addresses Spurgeon gave at the Lord's supper.
Spurgeon was not only a great orator but he was also a man with a warm pastoral heart. To him the times together around the Lord 's Table were when both features of his ministry came together. A moment of shared rejoicing and an opportunity to urge the congregation to think more deeply about the great event they were celebrating.

John Charles Ryle 1816 1900 was the first Bishop of Liverpool England. After a dazzling sporting career at school and university poised on the verge of national recognition he gave it all up to become a minister in the Church of England.However his leadership abilities on the field of play stood out and prepared him for the difficult task of being an evangelical leader of a mixed diocese in the most sectarian of English cities. Throughout his period in office Ryle was respected by his colleagues to the extent that even one of his most strident opponents broke down and wept at the news of his death. He was able to master the difficult task of being firm in his beliefs and loving in his application of them. His gracious spirit is an example to us today. This is probably why many of Ryle's writings have been continuously in print for over 100 years. Here Ryle explains that divisive often derided and misapplied by advertising term 'born again'. He explains what being 'born again' means why it is necessary and how you can tell whether you are. Much of the value of this publication though lies in what Ryle writes next. In his gracious yet firm way Ryle devotes the majority of the book to explaining how the objections people have had to the doctrine should be handled and overcome with gentle persuasion.It is a supreme example of the art of persuasion.
