Jesus was condemned . . . so we could be set free.
He was wounded . . . so we can be healed.
He died . . . so we might have life.
The cross has lost much of its appeal as a symbol of Christianity. Yet what Christ did at the cross remains central to our faith.
In this richly designed book, A Violent Grace , Michael Card reflects on what it means for Christians that we meet our savior at a cross. Card combs the Old Testament prophecies and Gospel accounts of Jesus' self-sacrifice, seeking a renewed vision of the cross-the inconceivable meeting place of violence and grace. Slightly Imperfect.
