He Chose the Nails by Max Lucado (Dust Jacket)

Much has been said about the gift of the cross itself, but what of the other gifts? What of the nails, the crown of thorns? What about the garment taken? What about the garments given? Have you taken the time to open these gifts?

He didn’t have to give them, you know. The only required act for salvation was the shedding of blood, yet he did so much more. So much more. Search the cross, and what do you find?

A wine-soaked sponge.

A sign.

Two crosses beside Christ.

...As you touch them — As you feel the timber of the cross and trace the braid of the crown and finger the point of the spike — Pause and listen. Perchance you will hear him whisper: I did it just for you.
