Journey to the cross (Objectif Golgotha)
The cross of Christ has always held an important place for Christians, and it is good to keep coming back to this anchor point over and over again. It was she who opened the doors of salvation to him and it is she who forms the core of the message he believes, lives and announces.
But this book goes further. He claims that the Golgotha cross is "crucial" for God himself !
From the “instant of eternity” when the Triune God made a commitment to bring salvation to his elect, all of the Trinity and human history have tended towards only one event: Golgotha.
Without it, no biblical promises, no Old Testament, no coming of Jesus here. Without the cross of Calvary, there is no redemption, no salvation, no return of Jesus Christ to seek his Church. Everything is centered on the cross! Everything leads there and everything follows!
Through the history of redemption, the Old Testament, and the life of Jesus, the author traces how God always had the cross of Christ in the sights of his wonderful plan of salvation. With dynamic simplicity, he draws concrete applications from it, both for the life and for the message of the believer in the face of a disoriented and desperate world.
Pages to stir up in Christians a sense of wonder and awe of the awe of the work of Christ. They underline how the centrality of the cross of Christ is such as to give the Church the spiritual power and influence she so badly needs for her life and mission today.
