The message of the Cross is central to the Christian faith. It is still relevant to us today. Finlayson explores the significance and the mystery of the cross focusing on 2 Corinthians 4:3-6 and Isaiah 53. The truth is applied in a most compelling manner, a manner which ensured that no reader can be left unmoved. Introduction by Carl R. Trueman.
