About This Book

A New View of the Old Rugged Cross

Let Cross Purposes spark a fresh revival of love in your heart for the One who cherished you enough to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Each of the 48 short devotional readings will help you approach the crucifixion of Jesus Christ from a different perspective. Together they’ll take you on a moving journey to the very core of your faith…to explore the truths that matter most in our lives:

·At the cross you’ll find a clearer focus of God’s purpose for your time on earth.

·At the cross you’ll find Him opening your heart and mind to more fully receive His intimate love.

·At the cross you’ll find Him sharing with you His victory over all evil and connecting you to His eternal plan for all humanity.

So let these pages bring you before the cross to explore its depths from the Lord’s perspective–so you’ll never forget all He’s done.

Cross Purposes is the most important Christian book that has come out in years. It is an easy read and yet a profound study. There hasn’t been a book of this caliber in this important area of understanding the Christian faith since C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity. Cross Purposes helps us to understand and communicate the Christian faith in a clear, concise, and comprehensive way. Everyone should read this book.”
- Ted Baehr, Chairman of Christian Film and Television Commission and publisher of Movie Guide®

“Hebrews 12:1-3 tells us that Jesus willingly went to the cross. Only His immeasurable love for us would move him toward such excruciating temporary pain to relieve our eternal suffering. In Cross Purposes, Dr. Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe beautifully remind us that the old rugged cross was transformed into an altar of sacrificial love for our sakes.”
- Janet Parshall, National syndicated radio host

“Many devotional books are available in the Christian market, but this one is the finest I’ve ever read. It bursts out of the ordinary with sparkling illustrations, brilliant logic, fascinating citations, and solid theology. I plan to re-read it on an annual basis.”
- Paul Maier, Professor of history, Western Michigan University, and bestselling author

“Read these pages and discover a fresh way the cross of Christ brings forth songs of praise, forgiveness for enemies, and hope for the despairing. You will remember what’s so amazing about grace.”
- Dr. Peter Lillback, President of Westminster Theological Seminary
