The Amazing Cross
Transforming lives today
by Jeremy and Elizabeth McQuoid
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
At the heart of the Christian faith lies the cross of Christ. At the heart of Keswick ministries lies the priority of the cross of Jesus.
The cross of Christ is the irreplaceable heartbeat of Christianity. It is a place of pain and horror, wonder, confidence and mystery, all at the same time. It is the place where our sin is embraced by God's grace and sacrifice. This deep exploration is pacey, accessible and sure to warm the heart and nourish your faith. We need to work out our salvation, and invest in a deep understanding and enjoyment of what God has done for us. The pressure of our culture can distract us from the beauty of Jesus. This will be a rich antidote for struggling faith and an uncertain heart.
While there are very many books available on the redemption narrative, here the McQuoids offer a unique warmth and readability about how the Cross is to be applied for the transformation of our lives today. It's accessible material for all types of readers. This is a quality keeper of a read! May it stir you to live a cross-shaped life.
