Product Description:

The statement 'The life of the flesh is in the blood' is as incontrovertibly true of the Bible and its message, as it is of the animal kingdom. Rob the body of its blood and life departs; death follows with its decay and corruption. So with the Bible. Expunge from it the story of redemption by shed blood, woven so wonderfully into its warp and woof, and in our hands will be left a lifeless, cold and dead book, containing some good ethical teaching, but lacking in life-giving energy. The gospel story is its heart, its life-blood. The Cross is the central theme of revelation, it towers above all other events as the glory-crowned Everest of human history. It is the focal point between two eternities. All the purposes of God, whether in grace, in government, or in glory, find their centre in it.

In this book, J.M. Davies considers some touching aspects of this tremendous truth in a way that will touch the reader's heart while edifying the soul.

Reviews:
The Mount Everest of Scripture and of Time - By J. M. Davies

This is a work of Mr Davies which has long been out of print. It is one of the treasures from his pen which has been hidden for a long time, and it is good to see it presented to the Christian reader in this new format. Dealing with a subject of immense importance to every believer, the author examines the Cross in various aspects - as revealing Divine love; as satisfying Divine holiness; as meeting human need; as securing eternal salvation; as fulfilling Old Testament type and prophecy. When these pages are read carefully and worshipfully the reader will come away refreshed and convinced anew that the Cross of Christ towers above all other events as the glory-crowned Everest of human history. Highly recommended for its spiritual instruction and insight.
