Why are people still talking about a carpenter’s son who lived 2000 years ago? What is the go with this thing called a cross, and why do we see it on church rooftops and around people’s necks? And, really, what does this have to do with our 21st century lives?
In short, we all need the cross. We’ve all done horrible things that need forgiveness. In this book, you’ll meet people like this: Simon, an indifferent church kid; Johnny, a student who hides his faith; and Becky, a girl who compromises her sexual purity. Funnily, these characters start to look like people we know, or even like us.
This book looks at each character’s problem through the shape of the cross, how it heals and has victory over it. You’ll soon start to catch onto why the life and death of this guy Jesus is still so important not just for Christians, but for everyone.
