Product Description

The cross is more than a symbol. On a hill called Calvary, the Son of God was nailed on a cross for the real sins of the world. Two thousand years have passed, and John Fischer believes we are in danger of forgetting why Christ had to die in the first place - on a hill too far away. In our eagerness to popularize Christianity, we have created a user-friendly gospel that asks for hardly a sacrifice. On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, The emblem of suff'ring and shame... Fischer urges us to face ourselves as we really are - the good, the bad, the terrible, and the wonderful. When we do, we can reclaim the cross as the center of life and discover mercy, life, acceptance, and forgiveness. 189 pages, softcover from Bethany House.

Publisher's Description

The Cross is More Than a Symbol



John Fischer believes Christians are in danger of forgetting the power and passion of the gospel. Using the powerful image of a 5-foot cross bolted in front of the platform of a small Conneticut church, Fischer explores the centrality of the cross to a Christian's faith for all time, as well as the tragedy of the cross's apparent abscence in contemporary Christianity.
