Overview

"Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps." 1 Peter 2:21

What must it have been like to draw near to Christ as he drew near to the cross? Reflecting on Michelangelo's majestic Pieta, in which Mary gathers the suffering Jesus into her arms, Ken Gire offers seven meditations on a costly discipleship that invites us to take up our cross and follow our Savior—through death to life everlasting.

As a result, Ken's gift of writing has had a profound impact on me and many others at our church.
