Joy Beyond Agony (Jane Roach)

$12.99 $5.00

A devotional commentary ideal for small group discussion and study. Jesus endured the cross in anticipation of the joy set before him: victory over Satan, sin, and death, and union with his glorified redeemed. Now he calls us to follow him with crosses of our own. What does this mean?

Each of the twelve lessons in this volume explores one aspect of Jesus’ cross through Bible study, application questions, commentary, testimonies, and hymns. Our familiarity with the crucifixion narrative can cause us to miss its deep teaching. Learn what the cross shows us about our Savior and the paradoxes of Christian living, and discover the hope and joy it gives us as we face life’s struggles and uncertainties.

“A wonderful tool to introduce the inquirer to the most important person in human history – Jesus. I commend this study tool to any and all readers. It is well written, pedagogically sound, theologically insightful, practically relevant, and personally penetrating.”
— Dr. John Hannah, Professor of Historical Theology, Dallas Theological Seminary

“This Bible study is thorough and doctrinally sound, and it speaks to the subject that is central in Christianity but often ignored in churches and Christian publications today: the cross of Jesus Christ. Jane Roach has taught the Bible for many years, and she has taught well. This book is no exception.” Rosemary Jensen, Founder and President, Rafiki Foundation
