Publisher's Description

Imagine bearing a cross to remind you of Christ's sacrifice. This is a common practice in Christianity -- contemplating the pain Christ bore for our sins. But now imagine bearing a cross, literally. This is what Henry Suso did for much of his life. Suso was so adamant about feeling Christ's pain and being reminded of his own ineptitude that he drove nails and needles into a wooden cross and strapped it to his back. This practice of self-harm for religious purposes is known as mortification, and Suso's autobiography profiles a perfect example of this unique custom. Along with many chapters on his suffering and how he made it through, Suso writes of his family, his conversion, and how God blessed his work. The intensity of Suso's faith and actions will spur many believers to reevaluate their lifestyle and perhaps make some changes. We don't all have to wear a literal cross, but Suso will inspire many to think of Christ's sacrifice in a new way. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer
