Publisher's Description

Christians worldwide have been blessing themselves with the sign of the cross for centuries. But few who use this simple, familiar gesture know its impact as a powerful prayer.  Author Bert Ghezzi shows how this potent prayer engages the Holy Spirit and affirms Christian identity.  With insights derived from Scripture, church teachings, and personal experience, Ghezzi encourages people to utilize this powerful sign in their daily life.

Drawing on the fascinating history of the sign of the cross, Ghezzi reveals six dynamic truths of the spiritual life that God gives.  The Sign of the Cross brings forth an opening to God, renewal of baptism, mark of discipleship, acceptance of suffering, defense agains the devil, and victory over self-indulgence.  This inspirational book brings to life the blessings of this ancient prayer and guides Christians to a renewed experience of God.
