With Easter in the offing, a book on the Cross is sought by teachers and preachers as well as individuals for private devotions or gifts. But not every book fills the bill as well as this one. It is practical and unmistakably clear. The Cross, as the central figure, becomes an intensely personal challenge to the reader, penetrating the problems and passions of everyday life. There are no strictures of either age or creed to the marketability of this book.
