Admittedly, Hughes didn't so much offer tons of new information about the cross in this book, as much as the information, backed by hundreds of scriptures, leaped off the page with heart piercing targets and pure sincerity. Hughes takes the reader through understanding the necessity for the cross, the nature of the cross, the power of the blood of Christ, how precious the blood truly is, along with several other chapters detailing the powerful event which was the cross.
One chapter that stood out to me the most was Hughes' continued push for today's churches to recognize that the most important topic, the foundational element, and the pure focus of the early church was the cross. In focusing on the cross and what Christ did in living, dying, and resurrecting, the floodgates of God's power opened in the early's church's ministries and midst. Hughes declares that there is no other way to touch the Lord and to give service to His commands than to preach the cross, hold high the blood of Christ, and proclaim its freeing power over sin.
Loved this book! It's hard to believe I bought it for $1 at a book sale at Church of God Campmeeting. Best $1 book I've ever bought. Tons better than many $20 books I've bought!
