Product Description

Jesus was condemned . . . so we could be set free.

He was wounded . . . so we can be healed.

He died . . . so we might have life.

The cross has lost much of its appeal as a symbol of Christianity. Yet what Christ did at the cross remains central to our faith.

In this richly designed book, A Violent Grace , Michael Card reflects on what it means for Christians that we meet our savior at a cross. Card combs the Old Testament prophecies and Gospel accounts of Jesus' self-sacrifice, seeking a renewed vision of the cross-the inconceivable meeting place of violence and grace.

Endorsements

Every encounter I've had with Michael Card has brought me closer to Jesus. I'm confident that this book will do the same.
-Max Lucado

Dietrich Bonhoeffer defined 'cheap grace' as grace without the cross. In these scalding pages, Michael Card touched my heart with the love of Christ crucified and led me to an unprecedented appreciation of undeserved grace.
-Brennan Manning,
author of The Ragamuffin Gospel

What Michael Card sings at this level I most need: The inaudible strains of warm truth that fly from heart to heart and nourish the soul where all too few have fed. Loving God is hungry work and only those who hunger enough can feed the rest of us. Michael Card knows how to set such a table.
-Calvin Miller

Always the careful teacher, Michael Card draws the church back to a much-needed look at the suffering Savior. Like me, you will gaze with astonished reverence at the One who endured such violence, then bow in humble adoration, crying, 'Lord, make me more like you.'
-Steve Green

Editorial Reviews

"Always the careful teacher, Michael Card draws the church back to a much-needed look at the suffering Savior. Like me, you will gaze with astonished reverence at the One who endured such violence, then bow in humble adoration, crying, 'Lord, make me more like you.'"
"With dramatic and cinematic lyrics and riviting prose, we are eyewitnesses, Scripture becomes flesh for us to see and feel and touch, to steph into and experience. Much like Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion, Card's book and CD stop us in our tracks and ask, even demand, a selah. To read through the book and share the life and death of Christ with others during Lent, and then experience the CD as a musical, during Holy Week, would be a truly rewarding and deepening journey for a community of believers."
