Experiencing the Power of The Cross Book Review


When you see the cross, what comes to mind? It is clearly a symbol of Christianity. For most of us it was brought into a more serious light when we watched the movie "The Passion of the Christ," but recognizing its real significance goes even deeper.

Gary Kinnaman's book is a practical, contemporary look into unlocking the supernatural power of the cross in our life. How do I give you a short, one page description of this book? I found so much wisdom and teachings that gave me so much to think about and to ponder, that I was tempted to write several pages on each chapter in an effort to share some of the insight. But Mr. Kinnaman did it so well; I'll leave it to him.
"For the person who meets Christ, everything changes and nothing changes. In one sense, everything stays the same. Same house, same furniture. Same relationships, same job. On the other hand, how you understand the ordinary and daily routines of life changes dramatically. Every day becomes God's day, and every moment is a sacrament." Page22


I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Experiencing the Power of the Cross". The author drew me on from point to point, making each detail, that I have read and studied about many times, seem profoundly new. In the book, he often encourages readers to study certain parts of the Bible in preparation for his teaching. Mr. Kennaman writes clearly and in a straight-forward manner making it equally
understandable to the seasoned Christian or a new believer. Be prepared to take your time. This book is so easily read that you may be tempted to continue chapter to chapter in one sitting, but I suggest that you stop to prayerfully consider the depth of meaning in each chapter before moving on to the next.

The book includes a Scripture reading plan for the Lenten and Easter season. Read it now and then make a point to come back to it at the beginning of Lent.

Gary Kinnaman is senior pastor of Word of Grace Church in Mesa, Arizona. He has written several other books including "Angels Dark and Light," all of which I plan to read in the near future. He is on my A list of authors.
