The cross of Christ is the heartbeat of Christianity. It is a place of pain and horror, wonder and beauty, all at the same time. It is the place where our sin collided gloriously with God's grace.

But do we really understand what the cross is all about? Or are we so caught up in the peripherals of the faith that we have forgotten the core? We need to ask ourselves:

- How deep an impact has the cross made on my personality?
- Do I live in the light of the freedom it has won for me?
- Am I dying to myself every day, so that I can live for Christ?
- Do I face suffering with faith and assurance?
- Can I face death in the light of the hope of the resurrection?

The authors present us with a contemporary challenge to place all of our lives, every thought, word and deed, under the shadow of the amazing cross, and allow that cross to transform us here and now.



Commendations

'Skilfully blending clear Bible teaching, practical application and effective illustration, I especially appreciated the passion and conviction which have shaped this book. It is an ideal introduction to the heart of the Christian gospel, and a very welcome addition to the Keswick Foundation series.' - Jonathan Lamb, Chairman, Keswick Ministries

'In days of confusion surrounding the doctrine of the atonement I have been looking for a book which is clear on the doctrine, but also conveys the sheer wonder of the truth of Christ dying in our place, and the implications for our lives. This is the book I have been waiting for!' - Peter Maiden

'Jeremy and Liz McQuoid have written a book that is so simply, clearly and interestingly presented that it will make the message of the cross of Jesus come home vividly to you. But this is not a book for passive 'dummies' who simply want to read an interesting story; it is for people who are willing to be open to the obligation that the death of Jesus places upon them to make their own personal commitment to him as their Saviour and Lord.' - Howard Marshall, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, University of Aberdeen

'No matter where we are in our Christian experience we live in sight of the cross. We can never get over it or fully understand love "so amazing, so divine." Here is a book that has something for every one who lives within the shadow of Jesus Christ and him crucified.' - Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga Distinguished Professor of Preaching at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Boston
