Item Description...
The central doctrine of Christianity is that Jesus died to save sinners from eternal doom. Until we see ourselves as deserving of that fate, we will never understand the cross. Pastor Lutzer offers a fresh perspective on the last words of Christ. You'll see your own needs in the Savior's cry for pardon, assurance, compassion---and victory!

Publishers Description

Last words are always important-and Jesus was not silent while on the cross. As we turn our attention to His cries, we stand on holy ground. His cries reveal the deepest longings of His heart, and here we see His final act of selfless suffering.
This book was written with the conviction that the better we grasp what the cross meant to Christ, the better we will understand what the cross should mean to us. "To stand at the foot of the cross is to witness the purpose for which God created the world.
"Erwin Lutzer, pastor of the Moody Church, gently leads readers on a journey into the heart of Christ to help them grasp what Christ Himself wants us to know. Come turn your attention to His cries and be utterly changed.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great devotional on the meaning of Jesus' death  Apr 17, 2006
Filled with readable theology and helpful illustrations and anecdotes Cries From the Cross is a great introduction to the doctrine of the atonement. In this book Dr. Lutzer breaks down Jesus' last seven "cries" into chapters that explain the reason Jesus had to die. It is a short book and very readable, but packed with a smorgasbord of food for thought. I found it a very helpful devotional guide on Good Friday as I thought about the price My Lord paid for my salvation.
Audible Cries  Sep 1, 2005
A few years ago, a friend invited me to go with him and his family to Snow Mass, Colorado. After one day of snowboarding, a teenager slammed into me and my left shoulder essentially froze to where I couldn't move it. It was the first day of that week, and a few weeks before Easter. I couldn't fly back home because of the added expense, but fortunately, I had brought my Bible as well as "More Than a Carpenter" and "Cries From The Cross". I went through most of the New Testament pretty quickly up to Revelation (and I was already saved at the time), and after I read Josh's book one day, I started on Lutzer's.

I can't tell you what it meant to me. I know that God allowed me to incur a temporary injury that first day which left me in bed while the rest of my friend's family were off on the slopes that week. I had a view of the mountain top, and all I did was read and pray. After they came back and would pass out from fatigue at 9 P.M. each night, I took up where I left off. Until 3-4:00 in the morning.

"Cries From The Cross" was one of the most profound books I've ever read, where I literally felt like I was at the foot of the cross. And again, this was just before Easter, so I do believe that God was intervening on my behalf to get me out of my lukewarm state of mind. Over and over, I could almost hear Jesus from the cross, with His eyes searching me out from the crowd. Wonderful Savior. Max Lucado has written several great books such as "Six Hours One Friday" and "He Chose The Nails". Those are also worthwhile reads. But if you really want to feel moved and feel as if you were there at Calvary...understanding what every word out of Jesus's mouth was truly meaning for all of eternity, this is the book for you.

In Christ,
Discover the utmost importance of those seven phrases uttered on the cross  Aug 29, 2005
Another winner from Pastor Lutzer. This book is a mix of inspirational and theological styles. Lutzer attempts to dive into the vastness and profoundness of Jesus' mind, managing to teach us and awe us about the greatness of our Lord. I never imagined how extremely important are those 7 phrases uttered by Jesus while on the cross until now.

This book analyzes each of the 7 phrases Jesus spoke in his dying moments and I challenge you not to be deeply touched with their message and the deep meaning they carry. It will make you better comprehend what Jesus was enduring while on the cross and more importantly why he chose to endure it. Read this book if you want to be overwhelmed by how much God loves us: you will in turn return the favor!

Why not 5 stars? Because I wished it was a little bigger, it will hook you and keep you wanting for more. Full 4 stars.
A true blessing of a book.  Jun 15, 2003
I picked up this book about a week ago. The past few weeks have been hard on me and in life in general. My relationship with God was, to say the least, unhinged. There was a lot of disapointment on my part, a lot of that produced be honest...I was letting my will rule me instead of bowing to God's will.

Yet this book helped me get past the depression on so many respects. It is not a book for deep theological study, but it is a comfortable reading that helped me out while studying all the sayings of Christ Jesus on the Cross...

Those sayings are:
*"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing" Luke 23:34
*"Today you will be with me in paradise" Luke 23:43
*"Dear woman, here is your is your mother" John 19:26-27
*"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Matthew 27:46
*"I am thirsty" John 19:28
*"It is finished" John 19:30
*"Father, into our hands I commit my spirit" Luke 23:46

How Lutzer explains and examines each of these sayings of our Savior and Lord upon the cross really helped me realize just how much God cares for me and just how much...even if I dont feel worth in this world...on the grand scheme of things...I have humbled worth because Jesus died and rose on the third day for my that I may be with the Lord God.

I suggest anyone and everyone to read this book. It will truly help you grow closer to our Lord.

Wise Words and Insightful Commentary  Apr 23, 2003
I was intrigued by Dr.Lutzer's radio sermons as I scanned the dial while intrigued, I bought this book. Dr. Lutzer dissects each word of the seven utterances as Christ hung from the cross demonstrating that each one is pregnant with meaning and that these may have been the most important words from Christ in His time on earth. Added are many historical perpsectives and anectdotes that might make the message more palatable to skeptics; to believers it is a reaffirming read and a quick one, too. Highly recommeded.
