When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

It’s always a pleasure to recommend a book by a local author.  And I do warmly recommend Frederick Leahy’s book The Cross He Bore. It is a wonderful examination of the trial and death of Jesus. In 13 short bites Leahy takes us through these events with a sure hand. It is a  warm, devotional book (which never descends into sentimentalism) , full of astutely used quotes from writers in the Reformed tradition. It is a delight from beginning to end. It is very moving and full of wonderful insights on familiar and often easily overlooked details. Especially apt at Easter it is beautiful meditation on the death of Christ that can be read and re-read. At £5 it may be the best £5 you ever spend.
