A-Cross the Word

Martyn PayneBetty Pedley

$36.99

Paperback
Around the world today the cross is, arguably, the one universally recognised symbol of the Christian faith, but this unifying sign for diverse Christian communities has been much adapted, decorated and interpreted to convey particular stories that are dear to the community from which they come.

This book tells the stories behind 40 crosses from a wide diversity of cultures and Christian faith traditions and sets out to promote discussion and debate on why this single, historical event continues to exercise such an influence worldwide.

The book is divided into two sections. Section One contains:
Stories, information, Bible links, questions and suggested activities on the 40 crosses, together with suggested prayers and words from across the world based on that particular cross. The material for this section was originally produced in-house by the Church Mission Society.

Section Two contains:
A wealth of extension material ideal for use in the classroom or in collective worship and in church-based activities, including icebreakers, games, prayers and poems, crafts and session outlines for special activity days, assemblies, holiday clubs and all-age worship.
