"Sometimes a book comes unhyped and unheralded and takes me by storm, and such is the case with The Cross He Bore by Frederick Leahy. Whenever I read it–and I have read it again and again–I am often compelled to stop and worship, to stop and meditate, or to stop and dry my eyes, thanking Christ for His immeasurable sacrifice. This little book is a true treasure." — TIM CHALLIES
