Endorsement

‘Sometimes a book comes unhyped and unheralded and takes me by storm, and such is the case with The Cross He Bore by Frederick Leahy. Whenever I read it, and I have read it again and again, I am often compelled to stop and worship, to stop and meditate, or to stop and dry my eyes, thanking Christ for His immeasurable sacrifice. This little book is a true treasure.’ — TIM CHALLIES

Book Description

Frederick Leahy spent a lifetime in the ministry of the Word. In these pages, preacher, pastor and theologian come together in a happy unity. No words are wasted. There is nothing of the frothy and insubstantial. Here is satisfying truth, painstakingly quarried and crafted for the needs of God’s people. A judicious selection of gems from the writings of others provides further enrichment and stimulus to thought.

    A great short book that focuses on the sacrifice of Christ. Leahy gives insights that I have not heard before.

    The line that touched my heart the most was “Lord, forgive us for the times we have read about Gethsemane with dry eyes.” This book cannot be read with dry eyes.

    Highly recommended
