Review 2 for Comforts from the Cross: Celebrating the Gospel One Day at a Time
Remembering the Gospel Every Day
Date:October 1, 2011
A group of individuals at church were all talking about this book called Comforts from the Cross. They kept telling me that I had to read the book because it helped put Jesus Christ as the central focus of their lives. I have to say that I found the book to be full of gospel truth, as well as full of encouragement, conviction and a challenge each day.
The book is written as a daily devotional and designed to be read each day over the course of the month. Each devotional is about 4 pages long. What I found beneficial was how Elyse Fitzpatrick shared scripture each day and challenges the reader to “fix our eyes on Jesus” (Heb 12:2). Each day Elyse focuses on the scriptures and implores the reader to grab hold of the gospel. Throughout the book you see her passion for the Gospel to be a guiding truth of a believer’s life. Each devotional ends appropriately with a prayer. I found this to be one of the great assets to the book because it takes the reader to the next level where they can confess what they just learned as well as ask for help to carry out the truth for the day. Every devotional feels like Elyse Fitzpatrick is speaking specifically to the reader each day.
Comforts from the Cross does a great job at centering the readers thoughts and actions around Jesus. The whole premise of the book is to “proclaim the gospel to yourself today and everyday” (page 17). Comforts from the Cross has a word for you if you are struggling with sin or need a fresh encounter with God. It speaks gospel truth over and over again. This is a life altering book because at its core it’s focus is the fresh hope of the Savior Jesus Christ.
Comforts from the Cross is a great book because it directs the reader back to the truth of Jesus. It encourages the reader to be transformed by the gospel with each day. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to center their lives on Jesus and would encourage this book to be reread on a regular basis.

Fitzpatrick has written a months worth of devotional material to help keep you focused on the most important matter in ones life: the saving truth of Christs life, death, and resurrection that is the gospel. In a style that I would describe as motherly, she sets out to show the centrality of the gospel and the joy found therein.Brad Bigney, from his blurb on the back of the book, says, The church today, particularly in America, has been languishing in selfish, impotent, shallow immaturitybarely able to survive, let alone thrive and make an impact on our culture. Need I say more? This month long set of devotions will quicken your heart to love Christ for what He has done for you on the cross. In addition, you will be challengedthrough your own joy in the gospelto share it with others. If you struggle to find joy in the gospel, allow Elyse Fitzpatrick to help you. If you do not struggle, chances are you know someone who does; this book would make a perfect gift.
