Publisher's Description

In each of Sunday's assigned lectionary readings -- the First, Second, and Gospel lessons -- we are invited to view the glorious narrative of scripture through three different, yet harmonious, perspectives. In the gospel lesson, we return to the fountainhead, bringing the congregation back to where Christianity began. Like the first disciples, we walk with Jesus, hearing his words and witnessing his miracles as we journey to the Cross.
As part of the Sermons on the Gospel Readings, Series III, Cycle A series, "To the Cross and Beyond" takes us through Jesus' final days on earth as recounted in the Sundays of Lent and Easter. David O. Bales explores some of the gospel's best-known moments as Jesus journeys to Jerusalem and, ultimately, to the Cross and then the empty tomb.
This collection of sermons is a valuable resource for:
+ Sermon starters and illuminating illustrations
+ Gaining a new homiletical perspective to the lectionary
+ Offering a newer, deeper understanding and appreciation of scripture
+ Using as a starter for adult Bible study groups or personal devotions
This insightful collection of sermons includes:
Looking Down on God
Putting the World Back Together
Jesus' Prayer: The Pause in the Battle
... and many more
