The cross is one of the most recognizable images worldwide. Worn as jewellery, even by those with no faith at all, and forming the basis of art and decoration in church buildings, the cross is remarkable because an instrument of tortuous execution has become a symbol of religious importance. The cross itself is no more than a couple of blood stained rough timbers but what it represents: the death and resurrection of Jesus is quite literally the crux of history itself. The message of the cross reaches out to us across 2,000 years and is as significant today as it was that first Easter. These two books help us recapture the wonder and power of these historical events.
‘Living the Cross Centred Life’ by CJ Mahaney is radical in its impact. CJ’s stock answer to the greeting ‘How are you’ is ‘better than I deserve!’ Yet this response is not a clever platitude but a humble recognition that Christ’s death and resurrection has utterly transformed everything. CJ takes us to the centre of God’s plan to save his own enemies. He leads us through profound truth and helps us to see how that affects us day to day.
