Book Release: The Church Under the Cross by William Powell Tuck
Energion Publications is pleased to announce the February 7, 2012 release of The Church Under the Cross by William Powell Tuck. This book challenges pastors, and the entire church, to make the cross central to both our theology and our actions.
By: Henry Neufeld
“For those who seek a church with no strings attached this book will not offer good news, but for those who seek to find a church that is willing to follow God’s leading and sink itself in breaking new pathways, and follow in the footsteps of Jesus wherever God chooses to lead us – without restrictions – this book will prove to be good news,” says Dr. Robert D. Cornwall in the Foreword.
“This is a serious book about a subject we focus on all too seldom these days — the power and the meaning of the Cross of Christ. I’m glad to say it warmed my heart. I think it will warm yours as well,” says John Killinger, professor, pastor, and author of 50 books.
In the pages of this book you will start by looking at the cross as the central symbol of the gospel, a symbol that you cannot forget if you want to preach and live an authentic gospel. From there you will look at how the cross illuminates our understanding of God, and then to the way it guides the way we will teach and serve.
The cross is truly a difficult subject to preach, both because we stand amazed at what it represents and because of what it calls for each of us to do. But however difficult it is, we must not avoid it. Only if we become the church under the cross will we be the genuine body of Christ.
“I’m delighted to be publishing this book,” said publisher Henry Neufeld. “I believe that our preaching, teaching, and indeed our living as the church of Jesus Christ will be more effective if we read this and put it into practice.”
