Dare to Go There

Although the cross is God’s decisive deed in human history, the full meaning of it is far too much for a mere human mind to grasp. But through Henry Blackaby’s careful examination, the cross becomes not a doctrine, but an experience. You’ll be overwhelmed with the utter significance of Christ’s death, leading you to a stronger sense of God’s power in your daily life. Steeped in the Blackaby distinctive of constant encouragement toward your personal experience of God, and firmly rooted in Scripture, this book exposes the tragic result of a casual attitude toward the sin in our lives that made the cross necessary. Learn to surrender to the deeper dimensions of the cross, so that nothing can block the Lord’s presence and power in your life!

Receive the reality. Discover the power.

Live the experience.

Jesus Christ died not so that you would recognize a historical fact. Or memorize a particular doctrine. Or continue with life as is.

No, Christ’s death was God’s decisive deed in your life, conquering sin once and for all. The cross beckons you every day, with power to transform every detail of your existence as you begin to see Calvary from God’s perspective.

Henry Blackaby leads you on an exploration through the deeper dimensions of the cross, ensuring that the further you go, the more you will: Deal radically and completely with sin Embrace true and lasting union with Christ Experience the fullness and reality of His victory in your life

Will you yield to God’s provision in His cross? Will you receive the power and presence of Jesus Christ? Will you dare to experience the cross?

“Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.”

Luke 14:27

The cross is not just His; the cross is mine, and the cross is yours. It transcends the physical dimension, and it transcends time. As you forgo your limited, human perspective, God’s complete and overwhelming, all-consuming love will envelop you. You’ll experience His blessings as they’ve never been seen, heard, or felt before–guaranteed. Because t he One who called you to bear your cross also goes with you. Every step of the way.

Story Behind the Book

"Our whole identity with Christ is found in the cross. It was there that God dealt totally with sin. And it is there that God intends us to be united with Christ in His death so that we would forever hate sin, abhor sin, and forsake sin. In our intimate relationship with Christ and His crucifixion, God intends for us to obtain His perspective on sin–to feel its horrors, as Christ does, and then to let God put sin to death in our lives–as He did in the crucifixion of His Son. The victory accomplished through Christ’s death and resurrection is the very same victory we can experience daily in our lives! " –Henry Blackaby

  • Excellent book to begin understanding discipleship
    From Amazon

    We just completed a very in depth teaching of the cross using this book. It is an excellent book to introduce discipleship to believers. Henry Blackaby uses simplicity when discussing the cross, but the teaching is powerful. I do not use many books when teaching, but this is one book I highly recommend.

  • What it is all about...
    From Amazon

    We all need to hear this message. We have only one opportunity for victory over sin, and this book deals with it. Everyone sins right? Well then it must be OK to sin. No! It is not OK. The fact that other people sin is not a valid excuse. God did not send Jesus Christ to die in vain! By keeping on sinning we are blaspheming the name of God amongst unbelievers. If all Christians experienced the cross with God the church would become the good example we need to be. We would be the light of the world. But most of all, those outside the faith would have a reason to believe that the Christian faith is alive and real. We receive an alarming warning from Jesus in Matthew 7:21. Go read it and think about the implications of this. Experiencing the Cross has the power to make you see the cross of Jesus Christ in a new light. It will set you free to start living as a true disciple of Christ. Buy a copy for yourself, and encourage others to do the same... Or just buy it for them. After you have read this book, ask yourself "Where is the evidence that my life has been transformed?" as Henry Blackaby encourages you to do. And be honest!

  • Not what I expected
    From Amazon

    Blackaby is better known for his book and study guide entitled "Experiencing God," from which he based his title for this book on the cross. If you come to this book, like me, expecting something similar to his previous work, you will be disappointed. Blackaby's book is short on profound insights or even new, engaging ways of interacting with old insights. His treatment of the cross is very basic theology on a layman's level. The style of the book is very propositional with only scant stories and illustrations--not very conducive to producing a touching sense of personal experience. For someone newly exploring Christianity, it may be a helpful book to understand the reason for Jesus' crucifixion. Blackaby's main agenda, however, seems to be trying to regain a sense of the importance of holy living in a Christian culture that sometimes doesn't take sin seriously. While this is a noble goal, and a needful corrective for some, a reading of his book may take many overly sensitive Christians even further from the joy of a grace-covered life that God wants to give them. Blackaby's emphasis will tend to reinforce in that kind of reader the guilt-ridden perspective that keeps them preoccupied with their failings, mourning their part in Jesus' death instead of celebrating his salvation. You can find much better books on the cross-shaped life.
