What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"These thirty-one short readings will scoot you up to the banquet table of God's grace and glory and leave you feasting on your Savior and the cross. But beware: this cross-centered diet will change the way you live. Get ready for joy, power, contentment, security, and hope to flood your life as you sink your teeth into this feast. These short meditations will shape your heart and mind. We need this book! The church today, particularly in America, has been languishing in selfish, impotent, shallow immaturity-barely able to survive, let alone thrive and make an impact on our culture. So this book is a gem that stands out in the mountain of Christian self-help, feel-good, and name-it-and-claim-it books that have dominated the Christian landscape for too long. Get this book. Read it, and give it away to someone else who needs a gospel booster shot."
Brad Bigney, Senior Pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Florence, Kentucky

"The love of God in its deepest intensity is found in the immediate vicinity of the cross, and this is where Elyse invites her readers to dwell for thirty-one days of gospel meditation. Poignant and thoroughly biblical, Comforts from the Cross presents an endearing view of Christ that will encourage Christians with a fresh hope in their Savior. This book also provides a wide-ranging tour of gospel truths and shows readers how to apply them with life-changing results. This book is truly a gift to women who want their lives to bear more deeply the imprint of God's love."
Milton Vincent, author, A Gospel Primer for Christians
