But through Henry Blackabys careful examination, the cross becomes not a doctrine, but an experience.

Steeped in the Blackaby distinctive of constant encouragement toward your personal experience of God, and firmly rooted in Scripture, this book exposes the tragic result of a casual attitude toward the sin in our lives that made the cross necessary. Learn to surrender to the deeper dimensions of the cross, so that nothing can block the Lords presence and power in your life! Receive the reality. Discover the power. Live the experience.
