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.
