THIS volume completes Dr. Schilder’s Trilogy on the Passion of our blessed Lord.
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto myself.”
All manner of men.
All kinds of people.
In many different lands.
This statement of our Lord still rings through time with ever increasing force.
It is proclaimed by tongue, by pen and by brush of all those who love Him, and who look for His appearing.
Professor Schilder as an orator lifts up the Christ and draws men unto Him.
As a pen-artist he pictures the Lord as One altogether lovely and much to be desired.
This particular volume has to do with Christ in the deepest agony of His suffering. He went into the valley of death, but came out as the Victor over Satan and his hosts, leading a great company of sons and daughters to the glory of salvation here, and everlasting life hereafter. Christ in His Suffering, and Christ on Trial, the two volumes already published, enjoyed a fine welcome. The publishers now offer the last volume in this trilogy to the English speaking world.
In our day the forces of darkness and light are pitted against each other in more definite battle array than ever before. But, strange to say, the brotherhood of believers, the ecumenic character of Christendom, looms larger than ever before.
Men and women of all lands cling closer to the Cross and to the wounded side of the Crucified One than in days of national quietude and material prosperity.
There is an inner conviction and a strong faith that after all Jesus is THE PILOT of the vessel which carries His chosen ones.
Dr. Schilder, in this monumental trilogy, has rendered a real service to the Christian Church.
