The message of the Cross is central to the Christian faith. It is still relevant to us today. Finlayson explores the significance and the mystery of the cross focusing on 2 Corinthians 4:3-6 and Isaiah 53. The truth is applied in a most compelling manner, a manner which ensured that no reader can be left unmoved. Introduction by Carl R. Trueman.
R. A. Finlayson
Roderick Alick Finlayson was born in Lochcarron in 1895. After studying at the Free Church College, Edinburgh, from 1919 to 1922, he was minister in various Free Church congregations before returning to the College in 1946 to lecture in Systematic Theology, which he did for many years. Prof Finlayson went to Glory in February 1989.
"Here is faithful preaching which seeks to go beyond the normal parameters of preaching on Christ and yet to remain faithful - indeed, more faithful by virtue of that fact - to the Christ not only of Paul but of the gospel narratives too."
