The Lausanne Movement The Glory of the Cross: The Great Crescendo of the Gospel

All of the books were priced right, the shipping cost was reasonable, and the books were exactly what I expected.

You might think that a small book on a well-known theme isn't worth getting. But this is gold. It is so clear, pastoral and engaging, that I found it warming my heart again to worship God in Christ. An advantage over some others is that the author takes us so clearly through the gospel narrative, so we can see where his teaching is coming from - and that makes it far from a dry study, but truly letting Scripture take us to see Christ. And its small size and price makes it easy to get several copies to give away to friends - even handy to mail to someone to encourage them!

This is such an unusual booklet - written by one of the great Scottish preachers and with a Foreword by Sinclair Ferguson (Columbia, South Carolina). It traces the familar story of Jesus's final hours on earth, from the Last Supper to Calvary. But as you read, you find it isn't so familiar after all. There are many new insights here. Wherever this is read it becomes talked about. There is a suggested study guide at the end. It would make good material for a Church approaching Easter. You would be blessed in new ways. I can't commend it highly enough.
