Book Review: Counsel from the Cross

“Counsel From The Cross” by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick and Dennis E. Johnson

Counsel from the Cross is a book that focuses us on the Gospel. It is designed not only to help us all see our continued need for the Gospel, but also to help us to see how it can impact us. It is designed to help us see that nothing we can do could ever change the way God sees us, or the fact that we need a Savior.

Counsel from the Cross was amazingly written and really helped me to see the Gospel, and my life, in a whole new way. God has used this book to help change my focus from the things of this world (including myself), and move my focus to my Savior, and His love for me and for others. It has helped me to see that there are really only 2 ways that I should be looking at others, either they are my brothers and sisters in Christ, forgiven and loved by our Savior, or they are utterly lost and in need of the knowledge of our Savior. Who they are or what they do shouldn’t matter to me. All that should matter is “Christ Jesus and Him crucified.”
