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 todaythe 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 Roachs 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 Pauls 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. Roachs 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 Roachs approach is accurate in content and elegant in design. Youll surely benefit from the thoughtful questions and the opportunity to reflect on what the suffering Savior did for us.
