This is 'The Bible Speaks Today' at its finest. Derek Tidball's exposition of the cross from Genesis to Revelation is masterful. The highlight for me was his chapters on 'The cross anticipated', carefully unfolding from Old Testament passages how the cross was God's plan for the redemption of mankind long before it happened. Highly recommended.
The magnificent theme of the cross of Christ is treated in a readable and practical manner. In a wide-ranging exploration, Derek Tidball brings out its implications for Christian living, community and spirituality.
Opening up key passages throughout the Bible, Tidball considers the anticipation of the Cross in the Old Testament, the experience of it in the Gospel accounts, its explanation and application in the New Testament letters and the Book of Revelation.
He writes: 'Before the cross of Christ countless men and women of every generation and culture have stood in adoring wonder and humble penitence. The cross stands at the very heart of the Christian faith, manifesting the love of God, effecting salvation from sin, conquering the hostile forces of evil and inviting reconciliation with God.'
