Why has the symbol of the cross remained so popular? Was there anything unique about the crucifixion of Jesus? Why was he put to death? What difference does the cross make today? Here is a booklet from best-selling author, John Blanchard, that answers all these questions - and many more - and makes it clear that the death of Jesus is our only hope for forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Ideal for giving to unbelievers. The cross represents not the character, life or teaching of the founder of Christianity, but the gruesome way in which he was put to death while still in his early thirties. For millions today a cross has become little more than a charm or good luck bracelet, tattooed on their bodies or worn as jewellery. The huge gap between the original event and the current symbol therefore raises some massive questions.
