Gate of Glory

Overview

Believing that the cross is at the heart of the Christian faith, George Carey has written The Gate of Glory to counter the growing trend among modern Christians to "brush the cross aside" in favor of "more relevant" subjects such as the resurrection, the Spirit, and the church. Carey maintains, however, that to lose the cross is to lose everything; to shift it from the center to the circumference of Christian faith is to water down the Christian gospel. From this perspective, Carey explores the cross in relation ...

Overview

Believing that the cross is at the heart of the Christian faith, George Carey has written The Gate of Glory to counter the growing trend among modern Christians to "brush the cross aside" in favor of "more relevant" subjects such as the resurrection, the Spirit, and the church. Carey maintains, however, that to lose the cross is to lose everything; to shift it from the center to the circumference of Christian faith is to water down the Christian gospel. From this perspective, Carey explores the cross in relation to the Old and New Testaments, and describes the significance of the cross for our daily lives. The Gate of Glory is divided into four sections:. Part One, "Background to the Cross," considers certain issues connected to the cross and examines some of the Old Testament themes that relate to the theme of the cross. Part Two, "The Cross Explored," looks at Jesus in the New Testament and at how the apostolic writers viewed his death. Part Three, "The Cross Explained," studies some of the explanations of the cross that Christians have developed over the years. Part Four, "The Cross in Christian Experience," draws a connection between the cross and our life today. In addition to serving as a valuable resource for church leaders who wish to deepen their understanding of the faith, The Gate of Glory is a comprehensive handbook for theological and Bible college students, and an inspiring guide for all Christians who wish to journey to the cross anew.
