Publisher's Description

Rediscovering the Beautiful, Scandalous Cross of Jesus Christ
 
The cross is the hinge-point of human history. It is the fulcrum of God’s grand, brilliant, lever--four thousand years in the crafting--that in a single day pried a fallen world from Satan’s grasp. The centrality of the cross is the hallmark of an authentic, life-giving gospel. But today we stand at an intersection, a literal crossroads of history, in which for many, even those with a genuine love for God and His Word, the cross has lost its importance.
 
In The Cross Rod Parsley takes you deep into the mysterious territories of what the Bible calls “the foolishness of the cross” and the “scandal” of Jesus’s sacrifice to explore the significance of the cross in the unfailing light of Scripture.
 
It is at the foot of the cross, and there alone, that we can look with wonder upon the raw ferocity of God’s love for us. To accept it and glory in it, this is the only truly rational response. Come along as we rediscover the power, majesty, and beauty of the cross and learn anew how to claim that power for your life.

    Without the cross there is no gospel

    Crosses are being removed in America, often a result of a twisted interpretation of "separation of church and state." We're even hearing less of the cross from the pulpit.

    We are becoming a cross-less society and Parsley is concerned. He explains why the cross is so offensive and notes that even modern "Christian" authors try to do away with it. "A cross-less generation must be pointed back to Calvary," he writes. (11) It must first begin in the house of God.

    Parsley has written this book to help recalibrate our "thinking about Christian faith and put the cross at the center where it belongs." (16) To do that he reflects on the crucifixion, what happened on earth and in the spiritual realm. He desires that we gain a life-transforming understanding of the price paid for us.

    This is a very timely and important book. I was impressed with his section explaining why the cross is such an affront to mankind. He does a good job reminding us that the cross is the heart of the gospel.

    If you have been concerned lately that the cross is being ignored, you need to read this book. It is a great encouragement and reminds us of the importance and centrality of the cross. Without the cross there is no gospel message.

    This would make a great book to read during Lent. It is also a great book to give to your pastor.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

    From the back cover: Rediscovering the Beautiful, Scandalous Cross of Jesus Christ

    The cross is the hinge-point of human history. It is the fulcrum of God's grand, brilliant, lever—four thousand years in the crafting—that in a single day pried a fallen world from Satan's grasp. The centrality of the cross is the hallmark of an authentic, life-giving gospel. But today we stand at an intersection—a literal crossroads of history—in which for many, even those with a genuine love for God and His Word, the cross has lost its importance.

    In The Cross Rod Parsley takes you deep into the mysterious territories of what the Bible calls "the foolishness of the cross" and the "scandal" of Jesus's sacrifice to explore the significance of the cross in the unfailing light of Scripture.

    It is at the foot of the cross, and there alone, that we can look with wonder upon the raw ferocity of God's love for us. To accept it and glory in it—this is the only truly rational response. Come along as we rediscover the power, majesty, and beauty of the cross and learn anew how to claim that power for your life.

    It is time to refocus our attention on the cross of Jesus. Jesus went to the cross so that you and I and everyone else could be freed of the burden of Sin. Pastor Parsley details the incredible significance of the cross and the sacrifice Jesus made on it. His last words were, "It is finished." "The Cross" lets us know exactly what work was finished that Friday and how we are changed by that work. I believe that this book should be read a number of times and then put on a shelf where it can be referred to over and over. It is also a great gift for friends and family so that they, too, can refocus their attention on Jesus and His cross.
