John Hargis

$7.99

Paperback
The cross is the defining model for the life of the Christian...We are to take up our "cross and follow [Jesus]" (Matthew 16:24). The Christian is to have the mind or mentality of Christ (Philippians 2:5). Christ emptied himself of his divine prerogatives in order to take on human form. As the culmination of that act of self-emptying, he died on the cross. God then raised him to the very highest heights in heaven (Philippians 2:6-11). That movement from cross to resurrection, of emptying one's self of one's prerogatives on the one hand to the ultimate vindication by God on the other, is the pattern of life to be embraced by Christian disciples. John Hargis invites the reader to follow the "way of the cross" and to be as Christ to others. Through the study of the Revised Common Lectionary texts we will discover the sustaining grace of God and gain confidence in God's resurrecting power. A seven-session leader's guide is available.

- Publisher The Way of the Cross is the new lectionary-based small-group study for Lent 2004. Using the Old Testament, Epistle, and Gospel readings from the Revised Common Lectionary and the NRSV translation of the Bible, each lesson includes commentary on each Scripture and relevant questions. A separate Leader's Guide is available and is designed so that leaders can rotate responsibilities for teaching. The Psalm is used during a worshipful prayer opening or closing.
