Item Description...
On a hill called Calvary, the son of God was nailed to a cross for the real sins of the world. Two thousand years have passed, and John Fischer believes we are in danger of forgetting why Christ had to die in the first place - on a hill too far away. In our eagerness to popularized Christianity, we have created a user-friendly gospel that asks for hardly a sacrifice. "On a hill away stood an old rugged cross, The emblem of suff'ring and shame . . ." Fischer urges us to face ourselves as we really are - the good, the bad, the terrible, and the wonderful. When we do, we can reclaim the cross as the center of life and discover mercy, life, acceptance, and forgiveness.

Publishers Description
The Cross is More Than a Symbol

John Fischer believes Christians are in danger of forgetting the power and passion of the gospel. Using the powerful image of a 5-foot cross bolted in front of the platform of a small Conneticut church, Fischer explores the centrality of the cross to a Christian's faith for all time, as well as the tragedy of the cross's apparent abscence in contemporary Christianity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Everyone should read this book  Mar 21, 2008
I read this book a couple years ago, loved it so much I lent it to a friend, but apparently didn't get it back. So I ordered it again, and finished reading it in one setting, sensing once again the impact of the cross John Fischer writes about in this book. It is rugged and splintered. It's not 'pretty' nor 'polished'. And this book helped me again realize it was an awful tool of death where sin was destroyed for me and those that accept His gift of redemption. This book will touch places of your heart possibly never visited before and I highly recommend it.
Remembering the Cross!  Jan 12, 2007
Somehow along the way in wanting to "appeal" to everyone and not wanting to offend anyone we forgot the words "sin" and "cross". John brings back what we have been missing.
New Light  Aug 3, 2005
The book is written in logical format and the material is very inspireing. I have never worn a Cross around my neck I am now in the market to by one.
Provides concrete Bible-based steps for Christian living  May 19, 2001
With On A Hill Too Far Away: Putting The Cross Back Into The Center Of Our Lives, John Fischer explores the centrality of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ to the Christian faith. Drawing upon the image of a 15-foot cross bolted front and center inside a Connecticut church, Fischer provides concrete Bible-based steps for Christian living. Other very highly recommended Fischer titles for a Christian readership include Ashes On The Wind; Saint Ben; The Saints' And Angels' Song; 12 Steps For The Recovering Pharisee; and True Believers Don't Ask Why.
