Overview

Spirituality: the lived, vital, personal dimension of Christianity.

The topic of spirituality in Christianity is muddled with mysticism rather than the mysteries of Christ: the Sacraments and His resurrection. With the rise of people identifying as "spiritual but not religious" and moving away from "institutional" religion, this book offers a bridge to bring people to Christ. More importantly, Spirituality of the Cross brings people to Lutheranism and its teachings of the cross and Christ's sacrifice for our savlation.

Gene Veith has guided thousands to Christianity through this best-selling CPH book, and the revised third edition will help you in learning about the faith. In this edition, Veith digs into a new topic called Christology in the Lutheran faith, along with updating much of the language and examples to reflect contemporary issues. Finally, some additonal material adapted from Authentic Christianity is now in the pages to speak to a more modern audience. 

Spirituality of the Cross also offers an updated list of resources to help further your understanding of Lutheran spirituality. This list covers many different topics within Lutheranism to help make it easy for you to find where to go next to grow. 

Topics covered: Justificiation, Means of Grace, Theology of the Cross, Christology, Vocation, Living in Two Kingdoms, and Worshiping God. 

"Indeed, the teaching that we are justified by faith in the atonining work of Christ on the cross is considered 'the chief article'—the underpinning of every aspect of Lutheran theology and, indeed, of the Christian faith." - from the Introduction. 

 

What Others are Saying

Lutheran theology needs to rule the day. In it, one will not only find biblical fidelity, near company with the church ancient, but also the most comprehensive and relevant verbiage for contemporary quirks and concerns. The Spirituality of the Cross is for all those who are seeking the simplicity of God’s good news for humanity but structured in a systematic way that sticks.

—Flame, Grammy Nominated Christian Rap Artist

The Spirituality of the Cross is essential reading for all who desire meaningful Christianity in these otherwise meaningless modern times. Veith provides readers with an updated and expanded version of his classic exploration of what makes Lutheran theology unique and permanently relevant. Just as this edition reflects Veith's own journey in the spirituality of the cross, I highly recommend this book to all who journey through this life longing for a stout spirituality of the cross. 

—A. Trevor Sutton, author of Being Lutheran, Why Should I Trust the Bible?, and Clearly Christian: Following Jesus in this Age of Confusion
