We all carry burdens of guilt and shame. We're weighed down, constantly reminded of where we've fallen short. But the truth is we're carrying around something that isn't ours. Our sins and shortcomings belong to Jesus. He carried them to the cross. He paid our debt. And he wanted to make sure we knew it.
In this book, readers discover the seven last sayings of Christ from the cross--both what he said and what his words mean for our lives today--so that they can lay their burdens at the foot of the cross and receive God's unsurpassable grace.
- good true stories
I was ready to quit after the first chapter or 2 because of so much unnatural repetition. It was like the author was trying to say his point with as many words as possible. I kept reading because of the story about the married couple he met at a restaurant and also about Michael Bloomberg. After the first 1 or 2 chapters, Kyle talks normal. There are a lot of good stories like the single mom who lost her son. Theologically it was rather shallow to me, but if you like the standard Calvinist gospel that is preached today about how we are still the worst sinners even after we are saved, then you would like this. It is very short.
