Living the Cross Centered Life

C.J. Mahaney’s Living the Cross Centered Life: Keeping the Gospel the Main Thing is . . .

  • A treasure for those who are seeking to focus their lives upon the person and work of Christ
  • A challenge to those who believe that we "move on" from the gospel to deeper things
  • A reminder of God's providence, holiness, sovereignty, mercy, and forgiveness
  • A reminder of our depravity and the necessity of a Saviour
  • The cry of one man's heart for the church and non-Christians to grasp the importance and power of the cross
There are few things the church needs more than a return to a passion for the gospel of grace. Many practical problems stem from a lack understanding of theological truth. I recommend this book to you as readable and relevant. To be able to disciple others in the Christian faith, and lead them to Christ, we must understand the cross and apply its meaning to our lives. Reading this book is one way to be equipped to fulfill the Great Commission.

You can read another review of the book at Heat and Light. This review covers the book's challenge to consider what you are most passionate about, and its exhortation to "never move on" from the gospel.
