I'm grateful you would put Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross on your list! More than anything about the book, it speaks to the beauty of his cross and our gladness in it being lifted high.

Thanks for your comment. Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross is a great book. I gave it to several people for Christmas this year.

Thanks for serving us by editing it.
