Summary:
In the midst of a troubled world, Christians believe in a good God who, as the Creator, has never lost interest in his broken creation. The key evidence for, and the chief symbol of, this divine commitment is the cross of Christ. The God, revealed in Scripture, has a project; and central to the divine strategy is Christ, his coming and his cross. The troubles and calamities will end. --from back cover.
