Jesus was condemned . . . so we could be set free. He was wounded . . . so we can be healed. He died . . . so we might have life. The cross has lost much of its appeal as a symbol of Christianity. Yet what Christ did at the cross remains central to our faith. In this richly designed book, Michael Card reflects on what it means for Christians that we meet our savior at a cross. Card combs the Old Testament prophecies and Gospel accounts of Jesus' self-sacrifice, seeking a renewed vision of the cross&mdashthe inconceivable meeting place of violence and grace.

Review quote

"With dramatic and cinematic lyrics and riviting prose, we are eyewitnesses, Scripture becomes flesh for us to see and feel and touch, to steph into and experience. Much like Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion, Card's book and CD stop us in our tracks and ask, even demand, a selah. To read through the book and share the life and death of Christ with others during Lent, and then experience the CD as a musical, during Holy Week, would be a truly rewarding and deepening journey for a community of believers."--Andrea Hunter, Worship Leader, March/April 2013
