Bring depth and spiritual enrichment to your understanding of the passion of Christ with Christina Baxter's The Wounds of Jesus. By examining the passion from the perspective of each of the wounds of Christ, readers gain a more meaningful understanding of the Lord's life and gift of sacrifice, as well as what his suffering means for us today. Each chapter includes a thorough description of one of six divine wounds (back, feet, hands, side, head, and heart) to deepen readers' understanding of the cross. In further exploration, Baxter sets each of the wounds of Jesus in the context of a major theme used by the New Testament to explain the theology of the cross. Practical applications are encouraged through discussion and reflection questions.
