One of the Best New Books I've Read: Counsel from the Cross

Counsel from the Cross: Connecting Broken People to the Love of Christ is one of the best new books I've read. This is a good and helpful book that should find a place on your reading list very soon. Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dennis Johnson team up to expose the power of the Cross in helping ourselves and others grow in grace.

They write, "When we lose the centrality of the cross, Christianity morphs into a religion of self-improvement and becomes about us, about our accomplishments, and about getting our act together."

In this book you will find solid Biblical exposition, helpful illustrations, gripping case studies, nitty gritty application, and rich gospel content. If the gospel of Jesus Christ has become stale and boring, you need this book. The authors remind us again and again how Christ's life, death, resurrection, and ascension relate to everything in our lives.

Get and read this book. You won't be disappointed.

I liked it, but it reminded me of The Great Work of the Gospel. I felt like if I read one chapter, then I read them all. Good though!
