'A hideous mistake'. 'The pivotal event of world history'. These are but two of the multitude of opinions expressed down the ages about the momentus and mysterious crucifixion of Jesus. Warren Wiersbe takes us right back to the scene and shows us how Jesus himself understood the meaning of the cross, why he endured it, and what he actually said as he hung there. It becomes clear that Jesus was confronting cosmic forces. But, more than that, he was accomplishing his Father's purpose that would ultimately affect the destiny of our lives.
