The cross of Christ represents the spiritual, physical, and metaphoric reasons for our existence. Old Testament scripture foreshadows Christ and his sacrifice at the cross. New Testament scripture reiterates that Old Testament vision as we are led to the singularly most significant event in the history of mankind. At the Cross is a line-by-line examination of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John as these apostles describe events from the Garden of Gethsemane to the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ.
This book is written for both new and seasoned believers so they may find direction for their commitment and the ramifications of that commitment. At the Cross is written for non-believers so they can see why believers from the martyrdom of Christ to the most recent Chinese Christian jailed and tortured for his faith would forfeit their lives and liberty rather than deny their Savior.
