Citing the Biblical canon, evangelical speaker and author Jessie Penn-Lewis discusses the pivotal roles that the cross plays in the Bible and wider Christianity. This book aims to teach readers how vital the cross which Christ carried and was crucified upon is to Christianity. The cross gained a multi-faceted symbolism in the Holy Scriptures, and it is in this book that Jessie Penn-Lewis explains - with frequent citations of the New Testament - the various attributes of significance that the cross has. Each of the ten chapters covers a specific theme. These topics include: How the cross proclaims one's adherence to, and following of, the principles of Jesus Christ. The role of the cross in the Christian Revival, whereby God flows through the human soul and spirit. The cross as a powerful symbol suitable for one to contemplate in quieter moments of prayer. The cross as a means of deepening one's relationship with Christ, following the path set by Him, and liberating one's spirit.
