Philip G. Ryken celebrates Easter with this thoughtful guidebook to understanding the cross. Seven answers to seven questions explain the why and the wherefore of the cross for a Biblical faith and a Christian life.
Ryken covers the necessity of the cross for salvation; the offense it gives to Jews, Gentiles, and any moral individual; the peace it brings to those who trust in Christ; the power it has to achieve God's loving, saving purpose; the triumph it wins over sin, death, and the judgment of God; the humility it displays in the character of Jesus; and the boast it becomes for every believer.
Philip G. Ryken became President of Wheaton College in July 2010. Prior to that he was Senior Minister of Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is also a prolific author and a member of the council of The Gospel Coalition.

The cross is the center of the Christian life and message... But what does it mean? And how does that apply to our lives? This little book will help explain that to interested readers.
Perfect for a thoughtful person who wants to know Christ and discover what it means to trust in Him.
Artful, but simple; compact, but loaded; sound, but fresh. This book is a jewel. Some passages sing. It well repays the time it takes to read it.
Dr. Ryken in his striking exploration of this question shows the many facets of the Bible's teaching on the cross. Jesus' identity and mission shine out clearly. This book will be interesting and helpful for Christians and non-Christians alike.
As practical as it is profound... It is a book that will encourage the believer and challenge the unbeliever as it displays the nature of God's redeeming love.
