Written by an art history teacher at a major university, The Mystery of the Cross: Bringing Ancient Christian Images to Life looks like it will provide us with a study that will surely refresh…
At the center of Christianity sits the cross of Christ. From the beginning, Christ’s followers celebrated the cross as a symbol of their faith. It was honored in church worship, carved into rough tombstones, pressed onto loaves of bread and set out as a sign of sanctuary. The cross represented what Christ believed, who they hoped for and how they approached life.
In this thoughtful book Judith Couchman takes up forty images of the cross from early Christianity. We discover their meaning and learn a little about the early church. More than that, she helps us focus on the significance of the cross and the Savior’s sacrifice.
These artful readings will enrich your understanding of Christian tradition, draw you into Christ’s presence and deepen your appreciation for the mystery of the cross.(BibleDude.net group project post)
