Unashamed Gospel5 Stars Out Of 5Remembering the Gospel Every DayOctober 1, 2011Unashamed GospelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4A group of individuals at church were all talking about this book called Comforts from the Cross. They kept telling me that I had to read the book because it helped put Jesus Christ as the central focus of their lives. I have to say that I found the book to be full of gospel truth, as well as full of encouragement, conviction and a challenge each day.
The book is written as a daily devotional and designed to be read each day over the course of the month. Each devotional is about 4 pages long. What I found beneficial was how Elyse Fitzpatrick shared scripture each day and challenges the reader to "fix our eyes on Jesus" (Heb 12:2). Each day Elyse focuses on the scriptures and implores the reader to grab hold of the gospel. Throughout the book you see her passion for the Gospel to be a guiding truth of a believer's life. Each devotional ends appropriately with a prayer. I found this to be one of the great assets to the book because it takes the reader to the next level where they can confess what they just learned as well as ask for help to carry out the truth for the day. Every devotional feels like Elyse Fitzpatrick is speaking specifically to the reader each day.
Comforts from the Cross does a great job at centering the readers thoughts and actions around Jesus. The whole premise of the book is to "proclaim the gospel to yourself today and everyday" (page 17). Comforts from the Cross has a word for you if you are struggling with sin or need a fresh encounter with God. It speaks gospel truth over and over again. This is a life altering book because at its core it's focus is the fresh hope of the Savior Jesus Christ.
Comforts from the Cross is a great book because it directs the reader back to the truth of Jesus. It encourages the reader to be transformed by the gospel with each day. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to center their lives on Jesus and would encourage this book to be reread on a regular basis.
