The events in the upper room where Jesus shared the Last Supper with his disciples provides Dr. Lynn J. Radcliffe, pastor of High Park Community Methodist Church, Cincinnati, with rich material for a series of sermon essays most appropriate for Lenten reading. He is familiar with the Palestinian landscape, and he writes with a style well suited to his vivid imagination. He brings both the place and the story of what happened there into the present by transporting the reader into the past. ""I would"", he writes, ""that through this little book we could stand together, reverently recalling the Christ of the Upper Room and recapturing in our hearts the wonder of the deathless words and abiding insights which He shared with Mankind on His last night on earth."" In this he is largely successful. His earlier books are With Christ in the Garden and Making Prayer Real.
