Can the Christian community get along without commemorating Good Friday? Has the cross become something we'd rather not mention since it doesn't make us "feel good," which our society seems to insist is the endgame of life? Or is the significance of Calvary and the death of Christ a theme that not only deserves, but requires, a central place in both our public and private lives?
This is the heart of Living in the Shadow of a Cross, a series of meditations on the cross. It calls us back to the foundation of our faith as believers in Jesus Christ. It reminds us of what we were, who we are, and where we are headed. Most of all, it draws us back to the One Person, the One Act, that brought us back into the most important relationship any of us will ever experience.
