After a journey of years through a variety of religious experiences and frustrations with mysticism and eastern religions, liberal theology and social justice programs, and several branches of Christianity, Dr. Gene Veith found answers in Christianity and specifically with "the first evangelicals (Lutherans)."

For Veith, Christianity is not about a general vague force called God but about "God in the flesh and God on the cross" and why this matters in everyday life. It all "hinges around this one historical faith ... around this mystery of incarnation, atonement, redemption."

He found this "framework big enough to embrace the whole range of human existence, a realistic spirituality."

Topics include

the Word of God justification by faith means of grace worship theology of the cross vocation the two kingdoms and the church. In The Spirituality of the Cross, the author discusses in detail the biblical views of "the first evangelicals," why and how they satisfy our deep hunger for the spiritual.
-Publisher.

The author uses his own spiritual experience as a backdrop to examine what led him to a relationship with God that was rooted and anchored in the Gospel.
