Alex Metherell, a physician with a doctorate in physics, explains why Christians have a symbol of execution--the cross--as a focal point of their faith. Why commemorate a crucifixion? Metherell investigates the importance of Jesus' death and recounts the physical and spiritual onslaught Christ endured during his trials and execution, including the trauma that His body experienced. Two conclusion become clear: the suffering was great, and Christ's response was supernatural. Metherell reminds readers that the cross signifies God's incomprehensibly marvelous gift to humankind.
