The Power of the Cross: Putting It to Work In Your Life
By Tony Evans

About the Book

“We need a right view of the cross. It is both a historical event that take us to heaven, and a current event that can bring heaven to bear on earth." – Tony Evans

In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans applies Christ's work to life today. In three parts, he systematically and pastorally explains three aspects of the cross:

-Its Person: What makes Christ unique, and how He is the center of salvation history

-Its Purpose: What was accomplished on it, and how it is to be the centerpiece of our lives

-Its Power: The stability and deliverance it provides in our everyday living.

We wear crosses around our necks, but do we apply it to our lives? Jesus' work holds incredible power for us. It's time we embrace it, for God's glory and our joy.
