 About the Book 

Sadly, the most central truths of the historic, biblical Christian faith are sometimes neglected in the pulpit. In this moving collection of sermons that will appeal to readers across denominational boundaries, Dr. Garry Milley draws our focus to the central proclamation of the universal Christian church: the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Accessible to a general audience, yet informed by his life-long experience of teaching theology, new believers will be nurtured by these sermons, while mature believers and pastors will be challenged to proclaim these matters of first importance anew: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3).With the heart of a pastor, the mind of a theologian and the art of a preacher, Dr. Garry Milley skillfully weaves his reflections on Scripture with familiar hymns and popular literature, together with homey illustrations, to highlight in a fresh way the power of the Cross and the magnitude of the salvation to which God invites us in Jesus Christ.-- The Rev. Dr. John C. MellisProvost, Queen s College, St. John s, NewfoundlandWith surgical precision Dr. Milley has woven a theological tapestry of the atonement and its soteriological applications. His lucid and rewarding study and his preaching of the practical implications of holy communion and the new covenant cannot be commended too highly. It is an able vindication of the Cross of Christ.-- Rev. Clarence BuckleGeneral Secretary-TreasurerPentecostal Assemblies of NewfoundlandGarry E. Milley (DMin, Acadia University) has recently returned to pastoral ministry in Eastern Canada after a long career in theological education. He is also the author of Prophetic Voices in an Age of Upheaval: Meditations on the Minor Prophets.
