Cross Triumphant, The


(8 customer reviews)
Award-winning author of Titus: A Comrade of the Cross, Florence Kingsley has written another gripping drama that begins seventeen years after the crucifixion. The Cross Triumphant powerfully portrays the chilling events that led to the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. Loyal Jews desperately clung to the burdensome sacrifices and traditions of The Law—in spite of the evil hypocrisy within its highest ranks—in a futile attempt to bring cleansing and forgiveness to their empty souls. Roman persecution prevailed under the mighty hand of Nero. Corruption reigned. Yet, amidst the turmoil and destruction, hope is birthed and a remnant of believers in the true Messiah cried out, “The grave could not hold Him; He lives today and forever!”
These were days of confusion for the young Nazarite, Phannias, who was determined to find out the truth. The Law had entered into every moment of his waking life, filling his mind with the never-ending clamor of “thou shalts” and “thou shalt nots,” for one day he would dwell in the Temple. Would the horrific events that had shaken the world blind him to the loving presence of the world’s perfect Burden-bearer? If you enjoyed Titus, you will not want to miss this classic!
The Cross Triumphant is part of the Epic Collection.

    The Cross Triumphant Enjoyable. I believe that the reader should keep in mind the date of authorship, 1898. Prior to the Holocaust, and the reestablishment of the nation of Israel, 1948.
    Just as Jesus read from the scroll of Isaiah in Luke 4:16-20. He stopped reading in the middle of the sentence; Isaiah 61:1-2a, and proclaimed ” Today the scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” The last words of that scripture was to be fulfilled at a future date. Much is the same for the scripture quoted in this volume.

    Highly Recommended Really enjoyed reading this! It has helped me to picture more of what the early Christians might have had to live with, and you find yourself caught up in the life of the young Nazarine. Very exciting!

    Fantastic! Such a wonderful book, with surprisingly good eschatology. All of the doomsday prophecies that we keep hearing about these days really were fulfilled at the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. I recommend all of Kingsley’s books, and this one has such an intense story line that it really is hard to put down!

    A Delighted Reader Florence Kingsley’s books are some of my favorites in the Lamplighter Collection. And this one is no exception. It is a wonderful representation of the struggles of the Christians in that time, and helps us to better understand the trials that beset them. This book is packed with beautiful truths and amazing heroes that will profoundly strengthen you in your walk with God. I have no doubt that the Father will use this book to work in your heart, and better prepare you for the battles to come.

    The Cross Triumphant It gave me information about what the Jews priests did when Jesus had risen from the dead. The priests followed the Law. They judged the people by the Law.

    Well Written One of the things I loved about this book was that the author brought in real people from the Bible (such as Mary, the sister of Lazarus) and also real events from history in the taking of Jerusalem and the Temple. And through it all is the beauty of the Gospel story, still in the newness of the New Testament Age, being lived out in the lives of godly people who will bless you with their courage, love, and faithfulness!
