The Amazing Cross

27 March 2015

THE Keswick Convention trustees have commissioned a series of books on key themes. Jeremy and Elizabeth McQuoid, in The Amazing Cross: Transforming lives today, look at what happened, what difference it makes, how we can live a cross-shaped life, and the resurrection (IVP, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-84474-587-6).

Sarah Osborn was a wife, mother, and teacher in Rhode Island in the 18th century. She was at the heart of a religious revival, documented in her memoirs. Catherine Brekus tells her story in context in Sarah Osborn's World: The rise of Evangelical Christianity in early America (Yale University Press, £25 (£22.50); 978-0-300-18290-3).
