On a hill called Calvary, the son of God was nailed to a cross for the real sins of the world. Two thousand years have passed, and John Fischer believes we are in danger of forgetting why Christ had to die in the first place - on a hill too far away. In our eagerness to popularized Christianity, we have created a user-friendly gospel that asks for hardly a sacrifice. "On a hill away stood an old rugged cross, The emblem of suff'ring and shame . . ." Fischer urges us to face ourselves as we really are - the good, the bad, the terrible, and the wonderful. When we do, we can reclaim the cross as the center of life and discover mercy, life, acceptance, and forgiveness.
-Publisher

Fischer writes that Christians are in danger of forgetting the power and passion of the gospel. Fischer explores the centrality of the cross to a Christian's faith for all time as well as the tragedy of the cross's apparent absence in contemporary Christianity.
