[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_wp_text text=”The Crux is not a Bible per se. It is a tool. It’s a way for you to better understand the whole story of the Christian Bible in brief. Think of it as something like a cheat-sheet Bible, or the Cliff’s Notes version, or even The Bible for Dummies. It’s something that will help you see the big picture of God’s involvement in the world, and connect His story to your own story today.

This issue of The Crux presents those pieces of scripture that speak about the victory of God. These are the integral components of a Christus Victor theology of the atonement, helping us to uncover that God is at work in the world to exhaust, defeat, and expose evil. Admittedly, this is only one of the many significant themes in the Bible, but being that this edition of The Crux will be revealed at Easter (2012), it also seems appropriate.”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
