Daily comforts from the gospel of Christ provide busy Christian women with brief but deep reminders of how his truths powerfully connect to their daily lives.
Nothing comforts a woman's soul more than a fully understood and embraced gospel. But many women aren't finding solace in their relationship with Christ because they don't see how his life, death, and resurrection connect with soccer practices and swim lessons. Besides, they just don't have time to sit down and read a theology book, no matter how much they might hunger for God's truths.
That's where Elyse Fitzpatrick's latest book comes in. Comforts from the Cross provides those well-intentioned women with bite-sized readings to remind them of their place in Christ and of his love and ministry in their busy lives. It also dusts off the facts of the gospel to show how ancient truths such as justification, sanctification, and redemption can free and enliven their souls every day. Even more, these five-minute celebrations of the gospel relieve readers of legalistic condemnation and empower them for joyful obedience by engendering fresh love for the Savior.
A perfect choice for gift-giving or personal encouragement, Fitzpatrick's book helps active women grasp the practicality of the gospel message and experience its deep comforts.
"The love of God in its deepest intensity is found in the immediate vicinity of the cross, and this is where Elyse invites her readers to dwell for thirty-one days of gospel meditation. Poignant and thoroughly biblical, Comforts from the Cross presents an endearing view of Christ that will encourage Christians with a fresh hope in their Savior. This book also provides a wide-ranging tour of gospel truths and shows readers how to apply them with life-changing results. Comforts from the Cross is truly a gift to women who want their lives to bear more deeply the imprint of God's love." Milton Vincent, author A Gospel Primer for Christians

Unashamed Gospel5 Stars Out Of 5Remembering the Gospel Every DayOctober 1, 2011Unashamed GospelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4A group of individuals at church were all talking about this book called Comforts from the Cross. They kept telling me that I had to read the book because it helped put Jesus Christ as the central focus of their lives. I have to say that I found the book to be full of gospel truth, as well as full of encouragement, conviction and a challenge each day.
The book is written as a daily devotional and designed to be read each day over the course of the month. Each devotional is about 4 pages long. What I found beneficial was how Elyse Fitzpatrick shared scripture each day and challenges the reader to "fix our eyes on Jesus" (Heb 12:2). Each day Elyse focuses on the scriptures and implores the reader to grab hold of the gospel. Throughout the book you see her passion for the Gospel to be a guiding truth of a believer's life. Each devotional ends appropriately with a prayer. I found this to be one of the great assets to the book because it takes the reader to the next level where they can confess what they just learned as well as ask for help to carry out the truth for the day. Every devotional feels like Elyse Fitzpatrick is speaking specifically to the reader each day.
Comforts from the Cross does a great job at centering the readers thoughts and actions around Jesus. The whole premise of the book is to "proclaim the gospel to yourself today and everyday" (page 17). Comforts from the Cross has a word for you if you are struggling with sin or need a fresh encounter with God. It speaks gospel truth over and over again. This is a life altering book because at its core it's focus is the fresh hope of the Savior Jesus Christ.
Comforts from the Cross is a great book because it directs the reader back to the truth of Jesus. It encourages the reader to be transformed by the gospel with each day. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to center their lives on Jesus and would encourage this book to be reread on a regular basis.
