Description

The Cross in the Experience of our Lord 

With a Foreword by Carl Trueman

The relevance of the message of the cross remains unchanged – It is central to the Christian faith. In this book Finlayson focuses on 2 Corinthians 4:3 – 6 and Isaiah 53, looking at the theological significance of the cross and its mystery. He applies the truth in a most compelling manner, a manner which ensures that no reader can be left unmoved.

About the Author

Roderick Alick Finlayson was born in Lochcarron in 1895. After studying at the Free Church College, Edinburgh, from 1919 to 1922, he was minister in various Free Church congregations before returning to the College in 1946 to lecture in Systematic Theology, which he did for many years.

Endorsements

“Three features deserve commendation. First of all, Finlayson’s book is utterly biblical. Throughout the book the reader is given the Scripture’s view of Christ and his cross. Furthermore, the reader is shown that Christ and his cross are throughout the Scriptures. While there is some effort made to draw a connection between each chapter, the reader is just as well off treating each chapter as a separate entity.

Secondly, the book contains an exciting combination of simplicity and profundity. Although a former professor of systematic theology at the Free Church College, Finlayson’s insights into the death of the Saviour will prove helpful to both the preacher of the unsearchable riches and also to those who hear them preached.

Finally, the warmth with which these central truths have been investigated promotes within the reader a dissatisfaction with the often lazy and overworked clichés glibly used. Any book that does that must be worth buying.” — Evangelical Times

More Endorsements

“Here is faithful preaching which seeks to go beyond the normal parameters of preaching on Christ and yet to remain faithful – indeed, more faithful by virtue of that fact – to the Christ not only of Paul but of the gospel narratives too.”

— Carl R. Trueman, Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

“As we read, we can sit at the feet of a wonderful preacher who took delight in leading his hearers to see the glory of Christ crucified.”

— Allan Harman, Research Professor of Old Testament, Presbyterian Theological College, Melbourne, Australia

“This invaluable book cannot fail to enrich our understanding and deepen our devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ.”

— Derek Prime, Author and former pastor of Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh, UK
