In volume two of At the Cross, Richard Allen focuses on the sanctification that follows a believer's initial commitment to Christ. The cross of Christ represents the spiritual, physical, and metaphoric reasons for our existence. 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, and discover the ramifications of, that commitment. At the Cross is also written for nonbelievers 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.
Richard H. Allen has been a public speaking and leadership instructor at home and abroad and has preached the gospel of Jesus Christ in many different venues.
