About the Author

Roy Hession (1908-1992) was a British evangelist and author. Hession was born in London in 1908. He was educated at Aldenham School where his introduction to religion led him to expect "anything but boredom" from God. He accepted Jesus in 1926 while on a Christian holiday camp, largely through the witness of a cousin who was a navy officer. After working for Barings, the merchant bank, for ten years, he committed himself to fulltime preaching and became one of the most effective Christian evangelists in post-World War II Britain, especially among young people. His understanding of the Christian life underwent a radical change in 1947 following a conference that he had arranged to which he invited members of the East Africa Revival Movement. He was very much influenced by their strong emphasis on a personal implementation of the basics of the Christian faith, in particular the healing powers of openness and repentance. His preaching subsequently incorporated these new insights. This brought criticism because of its introspective element, from some he had previously worked with, but it was much appreciated by many Christians on both sides of the Atlantic. In the years that follow Roy, together with Dr. Joe Church, the leader of a group of missionaries from East Africa, ministered to many churches and conferences in Europe, Brazil, Indonesia, North America and Africa. He was also involved for more than forty years in organising Christian holiday conferences for family groups at Abergele, Clevedon and Southwold in the United Kingdom. In 1967 he lost his first wife, Revel, in a tragic road accident. He later married Pamela who had worked as a missionary in East Africa. Roy Hession died in 1992 but he is remembered for his infectious enthusiasm and his humor, but above all for his unwavering stand on the principles of repentance and grace that had become so precious to him. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Back in the 1960's, we met Roy Hession and his first wife, Revel, at a retreat where they were sharing. We had never heard honesty and openness from Christians like that before. They told how sin keeps us from that abundant life that Jesus promised and how important it was to start right where we live, in our homes, and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any sin that was blocking Him from filling us to overflowing. Calvary Road helped us to see how we had been exusing sin rather than calling it what it was, how we had been "stuffing it" rather than repenting. We thought that the way was to climb up, but we saw the way up is down, down to the foot of the cross. Jesus began to reveal Himself as we allowed Him to show us where we needed His light and cleansing. As we humbled ourselves before Him, He has shown us that this simple way of walking in His light and repentance and coming to the cross is the result of seeing Jesus. Jesus has transformed and is continuing to transform us into His image and our marriage gets sweeter and sweeter as we both keep our eyes on Him, putting Jesus first, serving each other out of love for Jesus. We highly recommend this book and also "We Would See Jesus", he and Revel's second book.

Format: Paperback
I was 16 the first time I read this book and it greatly impacted my life then. It was the first stepping stone to walking in freedom in Christ, showing me that the fears, insecurities and shyness that I never thought of (and even blamed others for, "If only they'd do this...") were from my own sins, and Jesus could free me from them.

Life has taken many paths and I forgot much of what was talked about in the book, and more recently the old fears and insecurities crept in again. I picked up the book again and the Lord exposed the places I'd tried to hide - where I'd tried to be strong, able, and just proud, trying to prove that I was okay, rather than agreeing with God that I'm not good without Him, and letting Jesus be my goodness. I discovered that the thing I was running from (conviction, brokenness, and humility) is the thing that has brought me the peace I otherwise hadn't been able to find.

Format: Paperback
For such a small book, this packs quite a punch. This book is for those Christians seeking a closer walk with their Lord Jesus Christ. Not for the non-Christian. Well worth any Christian's time to read and re-read this book. Your life will never quite be the same. Page for page, may very well be the very best book I've ever read.

Format: Paperback
As I read the first few pages of this book, back a long while ago, I knew that what was to be spoken in it was from God. When I was 16, living in Colombia, South America, what Roy Hession here describes in words from God is what God did to me. Here in this book, God uses Hession to display his only desire and purpose-- what the entire Bible is saying. That all He wants is exactly who we are-- all our purpose, all our desire, all our life, all our worth, all our needs, all our actions, everything. And that He has the victory to take us entirely every moment of the day. He can live within us. We can know Eternal Life right here on earth. Give up all you are to Him, and know the only joy of loosing everything to be found in Everything. Read this book if you know you aren't enough, and even in all your Christianity, you are a "valley full of dry bones"-- you have missed Him.

It is hard to write a review of a book that changed me from the inside out. Mr. Hession identifies sin; clarifies sin and offers the only cleansing solution...Jesus' Blood shed on Calvary. You are lead along the road to sin identity, sin admission, and cleansing. Relationships and how we respond to others are given new light...Jesus' light. A superb book for any Christian who would like a closer more fulfilling relationship with Jesus and the gift He gave us...eternal life. I strongly recommend this book. Be warned, you will see sin in a different light and realize what a daily battle we all have in fighting the flesh.

Format: Paperback
Reading this book was like the getting to know the Lord over again. To be made aware of how far my path has wondered from His.Refreshing to see how easy, but painful, to get back on the path, and what is required to stay their.I use to think brokeness was something to be feared. But, Oh,what freedom it can offer. The book reveals living the independent life,from God,is not freedom, but bondage.This needs to be read and re-read,it has a way of bringing the Word's basic truth's to applicable living. An other book similar to this is "A Chritianity That Really Works". By Ron Marr

Format: Paperback
In this little book published by Christian Literature Crusade (CLC), Roy Hession focuses on the road a Christian must take in order for him/her to be useful to God. Brokenness, humility of heart and mind, purity, and other virtues are necessary, and at the end of the book, he speaks about his own "Calvary Road" so many years ago which prompted him to write this book.

A powerful little book with a great deal of insight for the Christian.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Timothy Dickinson on November 16, 2000
Format: Paperback
There is no room for the stiff necked and proud at the foot of the cross. This book reinforces that those that are readied to serve are those that have bent the straight and stiff "I" into a bowed head and a humble heart. If you believe that you've arrived in your Christian walk...if you believe that you're "Good Enough", take the time to reach these few powerful pages and realize that the only good in us is Christ. And when you realize this...you're read for Christ to use you.
