"To stand at the foot of the cross is to witness the purpose for which God created the world."

The cross is a wonder unfathomable. Time cannot contain its reach. No kingdom can surpass its power. No heart can endure its weight. And yet it is the center of everything. It cannot be passed over.

Pastor and author Erwin W. Lutzer believes that the better we grasp what the cross meant to Christ, the better we grasp what it should mean to us. To do this, Lutzer examines Jesus' cries from the cross.

Search with him and see how God's love and justice meet. Know the weight of sin and the power of redemption. Look upon Jesus in His weakness, obedience, sorrow, and compassion. Let the scandal of the cross give you pause.  

The cross deserves our attention. Journey forth into the heart of Jesus, that your own heart may be shaped to His.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Fantastic! A definite must have for all Christian households.

In this short, but power packed book, Pastor Erwin Lutzer explains the "cries from the cross," each utterance that our Lord Jesus Christ made as he hung on that cross at Golgotha 2000 years ago.    He uses scripture from the Old and New Testament to supplement his writing and the reader will come to see that Christ's death on that cross had been planned by God since before the beginning of time to save us all from an eternity without Him.   It's a book that can be read in a few sittings with writing that is clear and easy to understand.  Great read for Holy Week and Easter."

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The crucifixion of Jesus Christ brings us face to face with two seemingly contrary attributes of God-His love and His wrath, with two seemingly contradictory doctrines-the sovereignty of God and the free will of man. Once we understand Calvary, we can understand what it is to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily and follow Him. This is a work we should all read.
-Kary Arthur, Precept Ministries

Erwin Lutzer has a unique ability to make complex doctrinal issues crystal clear. In Cries from the Cross he explains the very heart of the Christian message, making it wonderfully clear in both its transcendent mystery and resplendent glory.
-John H. Armstrong, President, Reformation and Revival Ministries

With his unique insights and careful devotion to the text, Erwin Lutzer takes us deep into the mysteries of the incarnation, no more powerfully revealed than in our Lord's seven statements from the cross. This is not just compelling reading; this is divinely profound truth.
-John MacArthur, Grace Community Church

Cries from the Cross is truly a journey into the heart of Jesus. It has always been difficult for me to read the words of Jesus from the cross without being overwhelmed by the great love He expressed in His dying moments. You owe it to yourself to read it. Your devotional life will never be the same!
-Dr. David Jeremiah, Senior Pastor, Shadow Mountain Community Church
