The Cross is More Than a Symbol

Reviews - What do customers think about On a Hill Too Far Away: Putting the Cross Back into the Center of Our Lives?

Everyone should read this book  Mar 21, 2008
I read this book a couple years ago, loved it so much I lent it to a friend, but apparently didn't get it back. So I ordered it again, and finished reading it in one setting, sensing once again the impact of the cross John Fischer writes about in this book. It is rugged and splintered. It's not 'pretty' nor 'polished'. And this book helped me again realize it was an awful tool of death where sin was destroyed for me and those that accept His gift of redemption. This book will touch places of your heart possibly never visited before and I highly recommend it.
 
Remembering the Cross!  Jan 12, 2007
Somehow along the way in wanting to "appeal" to everyone and not wanting to offend anyone we forgot the words "sin" and "cross". John brings back what we have been missing.
 
New Light  Aug 3, 2005
The book is written in logical format and the material is very inspireing. I have never worn a Cross around my neck I am now in the market to by one.
 
Provides concrete Bible-based steps for Christian living  May 19, 2001
With On A Hill Too Far Away: Putting The Cross Back Into The Center Of Our Lives, John Fischer explores the centrality of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ to the Christian faith. Drawing upon the image of a 15-foot cross bolted front and center inside a Connecticut church, Fischer provides concrete Bible-based steps for Christian living. Other very highly recommended Fischer titles for a Christian readership include Ashes On The Wind; Saint Ben; The Saints' And Angels' Song; 12 Steps For The Recovering Pharisee; and True Believers Don't Ask Why.
