Christ and Him Crucified attempts the impossible!

What has happened to Christianity in recent years; that the passion seen in the New Testament scriptures almost seems to be reduced to a sigh or an inconvenient duty? Why do some people want Jesus but they don’t want His bloody cross; or they’ll take the cross and Christ but need to enhance it or make it interesting; or they just don’t want anything to do with Christ at all?

Pastor and author Jon J. Cardwell answers these questions and more in Christ and Him Crucified (124 pp., tpb, $12.95), a systematic look at the very core truths of the Christian gospel. Its blessed message is bigger than the book. This modest book attempts the impossible because the gospel message is infinite and eternal, contained in the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation.

Christ and Him Crucified resonates with young people as well. Sixteen-year old blogger, Corey Poff (, writes, “As I read this book, I was repeatedly reminded of one of my favorite theologians, J.C. Ryle; and particularly, his works How Readest Thou? and A Call to Prayer. I do not invoke the name (or those titles) lightly. Christ and Him Crucified resembles the aforementioned books, not only in length– it’s very short, and could be read in a single sitting– but also in style. And I mean that as a compliment.”

Jon Cardwell lives in Anniston, Alabama with his wife, Lisa, and his daughter, Rachel. He is the pastor at Sovereign Grace Baptist Church in Anniston after having ministered as a missionary and as a missionary-pastor in the Philippines, California, and remote bush Alaska. He has served as the vice-chair of the national Sovereign Grace Baptist Fellowship (2009-2011), and has recently been elected as the Fellowship’s current chairman. He has written thirteen books and edited five.
