Product Description

Combining expert biblical scholarship and seasoned pastoral wisdom, Christopher J.H. Wright guides readers through Christ's journey from the Last Supper to Calvary in To the Cross. Through the lens of the Old Testament, Wright navigates the Gospel accounts of events that include the meal in the upper room, Peter's denials, the taunts and jeers of soldiers and bystanders, and the anguish of crucifixion, inviting us to meditate on their significance for us.

Jesus' death on the cross offers us the forgiveness that Jesus prayed for, and through his resurrection we can know redemption. This is good news!

Adapted from sermons Wright preached at All Souls Church in London, these pages are ideal for personal study and reflection. The book includes an appendix for pastors preparing to teach and preach on these passages, offering insight on sermon preparation as well as helpful commentary.

"Originally delivered at All Souls Church in London by Christopher J. H. Wright, these sermons on Jesus' journey to the cross are narrative and deeply theological. Wright brings keen pastoral insight to a traditional view of atonement."

    After years of producing quality mid-sized commentaries, Christopher Wright has shown himself adept at writing fine sermons with helpful devotional material. In fact, this is his third such title in the last several months. One of those other titles was also by IVP and entitled Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit. This latest volume called To the Cross is just in time for Easter.

    One of the things that I especially noticed in this volume is how well Mr. Wright follows in the footsteps of his mentor, John Stott. I mean that as a sincere compliment that it is. In this exposition, he brings the story of the last days of Jesus to life. The sermons are warm, thoughtful, insightful, and touching.

    His first sermon is on the Last Supper. I appreciate how he tied the blood of the covenant to this story. The next sermon on Peters denial was even better. He showed how failure was a part of Peters life and how that Jesus knew those failures and could handle them. The sermon on insults and paradise highlighted the people around the cross and described how Jesus last three temptations were so full of irony. He ended the sermon with two of the sayings of Christ on the cross. The last two sermons covering Jesus sufferings on the cross were gripping. He brought that to life far better than most Ive seen. The sermons were over by page 108 and make outstanding devotional reading for Easter.

    I was surprised to find the appendix where he talked about the process of preparing these sermons. Its like a nice bonus, especially for younger preachers, who can greatly glean from surveying the methods of an effective preacher like Mr. Wright.

    This book deserves to find a large audience. Every reader would have to be blessed by what they find on these pages. You wont regret the time spent reading this fine book.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
