    A collection of sermons or studies from history's greatest teachers/preachers, past and present.I went through this as an exercise for Lent.These chapters were so good, it will be on my list to read again. For instanceCh 1: True Contemplation of the Cross - "The whole value of the meditation of the suffering of Christ lies in this, that man should come to the knowledge of himself and sink and tremble." Martin LutherCh 2: He Set His Face to Go to Jerusalem - "And their (the disciples') misunderst [...]

    I love this book! It's an inspirational read for me every year as we lead into Resurrection Sunday. For such a small book, it contains a wealth of good teaching. The author has collected writings both classic and modern, touching on topics relevant to the cross and resurrection of Christ. The authors range from Martin Luther and John Calvin to contemporary voices such as R.C. Sproul, John Piper, and J.I. Packer. My childhood pastor even has a selection in here! The book starts off strong with Ma [...]

    I’m typically not a fan of devotional books but after being impressed with the editor’s previous book titled Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus: Experiencing the Peace and Promise of Christmas I actually looked forward to reading this book. The editor Nancy Guthrie did an excellent job compiling great writings for Christian meditations concerning Christ’s death and the cross.The book has twenty five chapters from Christians both past and present. Most of the writings are from preachers althoug [...]

    Great meditations, particularly during Lent, about Jesus. Each chapter is from a different theologian, exerpts from a sermon or book of theirs, about the suffering of Christ before his crucifixion. Martin Luther, Charles Spurgeon, John Piper, etc.

    As we approach Easter, Christians everywhere remember Christ's sufferings on the old, rugged cross and the triumph of his resurrection. Indeed, the symbol of the cross is one of the few near universal Christian symbols. Protestants, Catholics and those who view themselves as neither, still cling to the cross. The gospel depends on it, Jesus' earthly life is shaped by it, the Four Gospels almost speak of nothing else. Salvation depends on it, and sanctification is fed by it. And with Paul, we all [...]

    We often label really good books/sermons as being "meaty" because they give us something really big to chew on. It would be like having a steak dinner instead of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Well, with that said, this book must be an all-you-can-eat dinner buffet! This book is a small anthology of 25 short essays that relate to Easter. Check out the content. I will let it speak for itself: 1. Martin Luther, "True Contemplation of the Cross" 2. John Piper, "He Set His Face to Go to Jerusal [...]

    I’m not Catholic, but in my parents’ home and in the reformed(Presbyterian) church I attended until I married, I grew up with a keen appreciation for the passing of the seasons and the celebrations of the church year. And this time of year, as we’ve entered the Lenten season, I find myself growing more contemplative. It’s a wintry time of examination but also of anticipation for the Resurrection.Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross is a book I pull out to read during Lent every year. It’s a f [...]

    I have never been a fan of the genre of devotional books, but because I have so much else to read, I have found myself in books that are not as long, because I have less time. This is a pretty good volume, a bit uneven in terms of content, with a different person writing each chapter. Some I gained much from, others less so. But a few well-thought-through works made this volume worthwhile for me.

    My wife purchased this book for me to go through while one an extended trip for work. The book is full of sermon excerpts from giants of the Christian faith. I found it easy to digest each excerpt during a lunch break. The focus is Christ and the cross and intends to push the reader towards this topic during the Easter season. Thanks to my wife for the thoughtful gift!

    In keeping with a Florida theme I started back in March, I picked up this book because it contains a brief essay by R.C. Sproul whose church is in Florida. That and I thought it would be great reading for Lent. In the end, it was the perfect book to read in this time leading up to Easter; really prepared my mind and heart for worshiping the Lord on Easter Sunday.

    I read this book through the Easter season and it was very sobering. This book is filled with short chapters about Christ, his crucifixion and resurrection. The excerpts are written by different pastors and authors of past and present time which add a sweet sense of variety to the book. I really loved this book. I plan to make it a routine to read it around every Easter. :)

    As my Westminster Seminary professor Clair Davis used to say, "the Christian life is a combination of amnesia and deja vu: 'I can't believe I've forgotten this again.'" This book reminded me how quick I am to forget the meaning of Christ's atonement, and how much I need to remember it every day. I found the excerpts from Spurgeon, Ortlund, and Keller particularly helpful.

    A variety of authors wrote the devotionals, including Martin Luther, CJ Mahaney, John Piper, Charles Spurgeon They have been so mind and heart-provoking, reminding me in new ways of what Christ did for me. I have been overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness as I read them. This is a really good book!

    This is one of the best preparations for Easter I have ever read. It features chapters from a number of great authors, from Augustine to John Owen to Raymond Ortlund and Joni Eareckson Tada (25 in all), including one of my former pastors! You won't find all equally fascinating, but you are sure to be challenged and encouraged in your relationship with the Savior.

    This is a wonderful, meaty devotional to prepare your heart for the season that was soul-satisfying! There are 25 mediations that take you up to Resurrection Sunday. Since there are no dates, this book can be read every Easter season. I highly recommend it!

    Meditations drawn from “the writings and sermons of classic and contemporary writers and teachers” to prepare the reader’s heart for Easter. For me, the selections from Ray Ortlund and Tim Keller stood out from the rest. Other contributors include Luther, Spurgeon, Owen, Calvin, Piper, and Sproul.

    I thought this was a very good read. It was easy to understand and spoke to my heart many times. It's a great book to read during the Easter season.

    This Easter devotional is compiled by the same lady who compiled the Advent devotional I read this past Advent. I can't wait for to deliver it!
