The message of the cross is the centerpiece of New Testament proclamation and a defining feature of evangelical faith. Each generation of faith must carefully revisit and faithfully rearticulate this message. New challenges lay new questions at the door of faith, and this is no less the case at the turn of the third millenium.

In this book Derek Tidball first reviews the state of the message of the cross in evangelical spirituality and theology today. He then revisits the key biblical texts in which the cross is anticipated in the Old Testament, experienced in the Gospels, and explained and applied in the Epistles and Revelation.

A careful exegete who is conversant with both current theology and contemporary culture, Tidball reaffirms the classically honed truth of the gospel and responds to objections in a pastorally sensitive manner. The Message of the Cross is a book that will inform students, reward laypeople and assist preachers in proclaiming the unsearchable riches of the cross of Christ.

Derek Tidball is visiting scholar at Spurgeon's College, London. Previously he served as principal of the London School of Theology where he lectured in pastoral theology. His books include The Reality of Christ: The Message of Colossians for Today, Skillful Shepherds: Explorations in Pastoral Theology, and commentaries in the Bible Speaks Today Series. In addition, he is series editor for the Bible Speaks Today Bible Themes Series.
