ike a skilled jeweler, Dave picks up the cross of Jesus and turns it gently under the light to reveal its many beautiful and painfully sharp colors. As he dwells intently over each facet, he finds no flaw in the gem but helps us see how the gem reveals our own, for our good. At a time when so much Christian writing tells the world's most blessed how to find even more selfish blessings, Dave preaches Christ and him crucified. He moves with equal facility between deep theological reflection to practical application without ever making the reader struggle to understand the most profound truths of the Christian faith. Dave also helps the reader see the cross from more than the pervasive legal/courtroom perspective which seems to smother all other facets of the cross today. The chapter on the impact of the cross on women alone is worth the price of the book. I can just imagine the rich conversations and prayers which will follow the study of this book in small groups and private studies for years to come. David has given us all a great gift and one that helps us be more like the savior who triumphed in his death.
