Publisher's Description

A devotional commentary ideal for small group discussion and study. Jesus endured the cross in anticipation of the joy set before him: victory over Satan, sin, and death, and union with his glorified redeemed. Now he calls us to follow him with crosses of our own. What does this mean? Each of the twelve lessons in this volume explores one aspect of Jesus’ cross through Bible study, application questions, commentary, testimonies, and hymns. Our familiarity with the crucifixion narrative can cause us to miss its deep teaching. Learn what the cross shows us about our Savior and the paradoxes of Christian living, and discover the hope and joy it gives us as we face life’s struggles and uncertainties.

Editorial Reviews

What a wonderful tool to introduce the inquirer into the most important person that has stood in human history, who through His life and death brought life out of death and hope for our world. I commend this study tool to any and all readers. It is well written, pedagogically sound, theologically insightful, practically relevant, and personally penetrating. What a useful tool for personal and group Bible study.
Jane Roach has produced a classic Bible study on the true meaning of the cross of Jesus Christ. Her stimulating study questions, insightful commentary, use of the powerful poetry of classic hymns of the faith along with her very meaningful and Christ-exalting prayers will serve as a great resource for individuals and Bible study groups seeking to dig deeper into the meaning of the sacrifice made on the cross of Christ. I am happy to endorse and recommend “The Ecstasy in the Agony.”
I highly recommend this Bible study by Jane Roach. It is thorough, doctrinally sound, and speaks to the subject that is central in Christianity but often ignored in churches and Christian publications today––the Cross of Jesus Christ. Jane Roach has taught the Bible for many years and she has taught well. This book is no exception and I see it best used in group Bible study although it could certainly be helpful as a personal daily devotional.
Jane Roach’s book on Jesus’ crucifixion and cross takes us to the very center of our faith. Roach reminds us that the cross, which was a scandal in Paul’s day, is still scandalous today. At the same time, we see that the cross is our only hope and our greatest joy. In the cross we find both the provision for our sin and the pattern for our lives. Roach’s work is biblically rooted and devotionally powerful. Readers will be encouraged and challenged by this wonderful treatment of the cross.
“The Ecstasy in the Agony” is an excellent resource that puts the biblical truth of what Christ has accomplished for Christians on bold display. True to the Scripture and challenging in every degree, Jane Roach’s approach is accurate in content and elegant in design. You’ll surely benefit from the thoughtful questions and the opportunity to reflect on what the suffering Savior did for us.
