Comforts From The Cross: A Book Review

About The Book:

Many women don’t always find solace in their relationship with Christ because they don’t see how his life, death, and resurrection connect with daily pressures and frustrations. 
Comforts from the Cross provides bite-sized readings to remind women of their place in Christ and of his love in the midst of their busy lives. Elyse Fitzpatrick shows how gospel truths such as justification, sanctification, and redemption can refresh women’s souls every day. These five-minute celebrations of the gospel relieve readers of legalistic condemnation and empower them for joyful obedience.
Great for gift-giving or personal encouragement, Fitzpatrick’s book will help busy women grasp the comforts of the gospel message. Now redesigned.  
About The Author:
Elyse M. Fitzpatrick holds a masters in biblical counseling from Trinity Theological Seminary. She is a member of the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors, is a retreat and conference speaker, and is the head of Women Helping Women Ministries. Fitzpatrick has authored nearly a dozen books, including Because He Loves Me.


My Review:


Comforts From The Cross by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick is the perfect devotional for busy moms, wives and Christian women in general.


 Each devotional runs about three pages, and in each you will be challenged and encouraged to live out your faith and keep your eyes on Jesus. With theologically sound writing, a daily scripture reference and prayer, you can use this book as part of your daily devotion time, and it will also make the perfect gift idea.


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!


BUY IT: You can purchase Comforts From The Cross online, directly from Crossway. It is also available from your favorite, local Christian bookseller.
