A short book (92 pages, larger than normal type on smaller than normal paper) about the meaning of the crucifixion of Jesus. The chapters come from a series of sermons preached on a series of Friday's leading up to Easter at Philadelphia's Tenth Presbyterian Church. Presented as seven chapters, each emphasizing one aspect of Jesus' death by crucifixion, including: it's necessity, offensiveness, peace an power offered, the triumph over sin and satan, Jesus' humility in going to the cross, and the fact that the cross should be our only boast. The key thing I learned from this short book is just how repulsive the Jews, and Greeks viewed the use of the cross. They avoided even using the work "crux," preferring instead vague descriptions such as "hang him on the unlucky tree." This book would be a good introduction on the meaning of the cross to a new believer. ( )
