Last Words: Seven Sayings from the Heart of Christ on the Cross by Robert J. Nash

Last Words: Seven Sayings from the Heart of Christ on the CrossABOUT THE BOOK

"Christ's final words on earth are full of forgiveness, hope, and compassion. Last Words by Robert J. Nash explores a fresh perspective on the obedience of the cross, revealing the heart of God who sent his son to die. Find new meaning in the power and hope of his death"--

Jesus's words in Scripture capture who he was and what he was about. His last words on the cross, over two thousand years ago, offer gospel hope for our spiritual journeys today.

Come and ponder the wisdom of Christ and see for yourself a new view of the cross.

This is a small book, just 96 pages long, but it is packed full of information and inspiration. Author Robert J. Nash has chosen the last words of Jesus and he specifically targets seven sayings that he hopes will challenge our souls. To help deepen our understanding even more, he then focuses on seven specific words from those sayings: Forgive, Today, Behold, Why, Thirst, Finished, and Father. There is a chapter devoted to each of these words and I especially like that in each chapter he shares Bible scripture, ideas for Reflection. and a suggested Prayer. He also offers an Index of Scripture to help readers easily find the many scriptures.

It is very apparent that Nash has devoted much research to this project and I consider "Last Words" a wonderful resource. I believe it would be an excellent devotional to use during the week leading up to Easter and very appropriate for both individual or group Bible study.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from New Growth Press. There was no obligation for a favorable review and I am voluntarily sharing my honest thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
