Book Review--Living the Cross Centered Life
Living the Cross Centered Life: Keeping the Gospel the Main Thing. I really like the way Mahaney writes. As the book title would suggest, he tries to be Gospel centered, but he also writes humbly and from his heart. He passionately encourages Christians to keep the cross of Christ the main thing, to not "move on" from it. In the opening chapter, he cites David Pryor, who said "we never move on from the cross, only into a more profound understanding of the cross." That seems to be the heart of this book, to encourage readers to really sink their teeth into what the cross means in the life of believers. At 166 pages, it is a quick read, and one you will benefit from. 4 stars.
