Are you flourishing in the life Jesus promised? Christians think of the cross as the instrument of their eternal salvation, not as the way to a beautiful life here and now.
In The Cross Before Me, award-winning author Rankin Wilbourne and co-author Brian Gregor offer a provocative perspective on why the cross is God’s wisdom about the way to a good and beautiful life. Drawing on biblical truths, historical writings, and modern examples they ask, “What does the cross have to tell us about the art of living a fully human life? What if the things we’re most afraid of are the pathway to freedom? What if the way of humility and suffering gives us peace in a way our successes never could?”
The Cross Before Me is for anyone who wonders what the shape of Jesus’ life has to teach us about finding the life Jesus promises. This unique book helps readers reimagine the good life as they learn to delight in releasing power and embracing the cross as the only path to human flourishing.
