Book Description:

The message of the Cross is the heart of the Christian gospel. The records of the life of Jesus devote more attention to it than any other part of his ministry. The rest of the New Testament constantly underlines its centrality for Christian faith.

But Jesus and the apostles spoke of 'the cross' as a principle of Christian experience as well as the chief symbol of God's love. Belonging to Jesus Christ (he said) meant taking up the cross personally and living for him rather than for ourselves.

In The Shadow of the Cross, Walter J. Chantry restores this often neglected teaching to its central place. Writing with the stirring and probing sharp-edged style which is the hallmark of all his books, he expounds in brief compass the practical necessity of bearing the cross and the joy of living under its shadow. He then applies this to such areas as Marriage, Christian liberty, and the work of the ministry and prayer.

Author:

Born in 1938 in the United States, Walter Chantry converted to Christ as a teenager. In 1960, he graduated from Dickinson College and then received a B.D. in 1963 from Westminster Theological Seminary. For 39 years, he served as pastor of a church in Pennsylvania and, after he retired in 2002, he served as editor for The Banner of Truth magazine. Walter Chantry books include Christian Living: The High Calling of Motherhood, where Chantry praises young women who are serious about motherhood and living a godly life of faith, love and holiness; Today's Gospel, a powerful book that shines a light on enormous differences between much of today's preaching and messages shared by Jesus; Call the Sabbath a Delight, where he reminds us why honoring the Lord's Day is intended to be a blessing for God's children; and Shadow of the Cross, a study in self-denial.
