Witness at the Cross Book Review:

Experience Holy Friday from the perspective of those who watched Jesus die: Mary his mother; the Beloved Disciple from the Gospel of John; Mary Magdalene and the other women from Galilee; the two men, usually identified as thieves, crucified with Jesus; the centurion and the soldiers; Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus. Jews and Romans, friends and strangers, the powerful and the powerless, the hopeful and the despairing. In Witness at the Cross, Amy-Jill Levine shows how the people at the cross each have distinct roles to play in the Gospels. For each, Jesus has a particular meaning and message, and from each, we learn how those meanings and messages cross the centuries to any who would come to the cross today. Additional components for a six-week study include a DVD featuring Dr. Levine and a comprehensive Leader Guide.

"Christian laughter is a maze: you could easily get snarled up within it." So says Michael A. Screech in his note to readers preceding this collection of fifty-three elegant and pithy essays. As Screech reveals, the question of whether laughter is acceptable to the god of the Old and New Testaments is a dangerous one. But we are fortunate in our gu

Comforts from the Cross Book Review:

Daily comforts from the gospel of Christ provide busy Christian women with brief but deep reminders of how his truths powerfully connect to their daily lives. Nothing comforts a woman's soul more than a fully understood and embraced gospel. But many women aren't finding solace in their relationship with Christ because they don't see how his life, death, and resurrection connect with soccer practices and swim lessons. Besides, they just don't have time to sit down and read a theology book, no matter how much they might hunger for God's truths. That's where Elyse Fitzpatrick's latest book comes in. Comforts from the Cross provides those well-intentioned women with bite-sized readings to remind them of their place in Christ and of his love and ministry in their busy lives. It also dusts off the facts of the gospel to show how ancient truths such as justification, sanctification, and redemption can free and enliven their souls every day. Even more, these five-minute celebrations of the gospel relieve readers of legalistic condemnation and empower them for joyful obedience by engendering fresh love for the Savior. A perfect choice for gift-giving or personal encouragement, Fitzpatrick's book helps active women grasp the practicality of the gospel message and experience its deep comforts.

The Spirit at the Cross Book Review:

What was the Holy Spirit doing at the cross of Jesus Christ? Jesus' death and resurrection are central to God's reconciliation with humanity. Does the Holy Spirit's work pause between Gethsemane and the resurrection? What does the phrase "through the eternal Spirit" in Hebrews 9:14 mean? In this book, Tan examines the perspectives of John Vernon Taylor, Jürgen Moltmann, and John D. Zizioulas, from whom three views of the Spirit's role at the cross are discerned: the Spirit as the "bond of love" between the Father and the Son; the Spirit as the Son's coworker, enabler, and power; and the Spirit as the unifier who unites humanity to the Son. In addition, Karl Barth provides the intriguing concept of the Spirit as divine Judge (along with the Father and the Son) and specifically the one who carries out God's judgment in Jesus Christ, the Elect. Integrating these theological perspectives with an in-depth examination of the manuscript and exegetical and hermeneutical history of Hebrews 9:14, Tan offers another way of understanding the role of the Spirit at the cross: Christ as the Father's "pneumatic crucible" in whom sinful humanity is judged, destroyed, and reborn through the power of the Holy Spirit.

At the Cross with Jesus Book Review:

By combining a compelling sermon series with an insightful group of monologues, "At The Cross With Jesus" offers flexible, effective resources that will keep the cross central in your congregation's minds and hearts during Lent. Practical for use in any church, large or small, the material in "At The Cross With Jesus" is perfect for midweek worship or Holy Week services, and could also be used for a Bible study. The five moving messages in The Symbols Of The Cross examine Jesus' final days by focusing on powerful images from the Passion story. Each homily relates these events to our everyday lives by exploring a specific symbol and the human characteristic it exemplifies. There are also directions for creating a searing memory of these symbols by placing visual representations of each image on a wooden cross. Symbols included are: - The Palms (a symbol of our fickleness) - The Money Bag (a symbol of our greed) - The Towel (a symbol of servanthood) - The Crown of Thorns (a symbol of mockery) - The Nails of the Cross (a symbol of suffering) In Five Who Knew Jesus, five persons who were intimately acquainted with Jesus describe their personal relationships with him. Through hearing the perspective of those who played critical roles in Jesus' life, we are encouraged to look more closely at our own relationships with Christ during the introspective season of Lent. The monologues may be performed in readers' theater format, but are even more effective if memorized. Few props are required, and costumes are a nice touch but not essential. Characters represented are: - John -- a hot-tempered man who becomes the disciple of love - Mary, the mother of Jesus -- a woman who suffers a mother's pain while humbly accepting God's will - Peter -- an arrogant man who becomes a humble disciple - Judas -- the disciple who failed because he thought he knew best - Mary Magdalene -- a woman of the world who strives to love herself as Jesus loved her Carl B. Rife has pastored United Methodist congregations throughout Maryland and Pennsylvania for more than 30 years. His sermons and worship resources have appeared in several CSS publications, and he is the author of "Bumper Sticker Religion" (CSS). Harold D. Shaffer, an active member of St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Arbutus, Maryland, is a licensed clinical counselor who currently serves on the staff of an addictions clinic in Catonsville, Maryland. Shaffer is also on the adjunct faculty of Baltimore City Community College and the Maryland Office of Education and Training for Addiction Services (OETAS).

At the Cross Book Review:

From the traveling snake oil salesman of yesterday to the modern "how to" seminars of our age, man has persistently searched for the all-purpose, fast-acting, miracle cure. In hope of finding the remedy to everything from simple aches and pains to society's life-threatening diseases, it seems man will endure any complicated formula. However, in this endless search for healing there is one scenario that humanity has intentionally overlooked: simplicity. Although the gift of healing is as valuable as an emperor's treasure, it is also as available as the air we breathe. What blinds most people to this simple truth is a lack of understanding about the very thing they seek. What event made healing necessary? When did this terrible incident take place? How did mankind figure in? What role did God play in this drama? In this fascinating volume, Rod Parsley answers these questions by pointing to one place, one incident, one moment in time. Understanding the gift of healing is easy, once you've been with Jesus...At the Cross. Book jacket.

The Panther at the Cross Book Review:

This is the story of Carlton and his challenges as a young African American growing up with the trials of the sixties, seventies, and eighties. This fictional story closely relates to the lives of those who grew up during the Civil Rights movement. He started out in Sunday school, recruited by the Gangster Disciples at the age of twelve, following the death of Dr. M. L. King Jr., and joined the Black Panthers as a high school student. He attended Malcolm X College, recruited by the nation of Islam, converted back to Christianity as a young adult. He is now a pastor, a teacher, a mentor, a community leader, and a Christian author. This book should be read by every person who has chosen to take a stand against racism and injustice by every Christian, every African American, every African, and every man, women, boy and girl of African descent. For the record, we are all of African descent. This story will help to clarify the challenges of the African American growing up in America today and what the previous generation had to endure and how the next generation must continue to advance the cause of justice, righteousness, and the cross of Christ.
