Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Without Jesus, the Bible makes no sense, and without his atoning death on the cross, the Bible makes no difference. From Genesis to Revelation, the death of Jesus on Mt. Calvary is the Bible’s central theme.

“So, Calvary covers it all,” writes John Phillips. “Calvary was conceived in the mind of God in a past eternity. Its shadow lay across the inspired Old Testament page. Its stark reality is detailed for us in the Gospels. Its blessed results are the themes of the Epistles. In ages yet unborn, Calvary will be the lasting wonder of all God’s redeemed.”

The View From Mt. Calvary will deepen your appreciation of the finished work of Christ as John Phillips guides you through the entire Bible. Pastors, speakers, and teachers will find truths suitable for Communion services, Easter celebrations, and stirring devotional study.

“Dr. Phillips has the rare gift of bringing diverse Scripture passages together so that we see beautiful patterns in Scripture and as a result, better understand ‘the big picture.’ I highly recommend this book to all who want to draw ‘near the cross’ and be transformed by the Holy Spirit as they receive God’s Word and obey it.”

—Warren W. Wiersbe

John Phillips taught in the Moody Evening School and on the Moody Broadcasting radio network. He is the author of numerous books, including a multivolume expository commentary series. Now retired, Dr. Phillips remains active in his writing and preaching. He and his wife, Betty, live in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

About the Author

John Phillips served as assistant director of the Moody Correspondence School as well as director of the Emmaus Correspondence School, one of the world’s largest Bible correspondence ministries. He also taught in the Moody Evening School and on the Moody Broadcasting radio network.

He served as assistant director of the Moody Bible Institute's Correspondence School and became well known as a Bible teacher in the Moody Evening School and over the Moody Radio Network. For four years he directed the Emmaus Correspondence School, one of the largest in the world at that time with courses available in over 100 languages. Returning to Moody Bible Institute he traveled widely as an itinerant Bible teacher for the Institute's Extension Ministry. He is best known for his EXPLORING and INTRODUCING books. He has written on all the New Testament books and on numerous Old Testament books including EXPLORING GENESIS, EXPLORING PSALMS (2 vols), EXPLORING PROVERBS (2 vols) and EXPLORING THE MINOR PROPHETS. Dr. Phillips' resources have been the companions of pastors, teachers and Bible students everywhere who have turned to them for instruction, illumination, and illustration.

This is a great book. It causes you to look at what happened on Calvary from various viewpoints. The Christ of Calvary is truly magnified through this writing. Phillips touches on many of the shadows of Calvary, and gives insights that will bless both the baby in Christ and the mature saint. This book is a good read, and can be used for daily devotions.

I have read several other books on Christ's Cross--some of them considered 'classics'--Mount Calvary, in my opinion, should be added to that list. I appreciated his whole approach to the Cross & its meaning to us--VERY insightful & beneficial to the reader...JBL

The author, a personal acquaintance, was a man gifted by God to reveal the deep truths concerning God and His love for mankind, as revealed in the Person and the Work of Jesus Christ, contained in the Scriptures. This book, one of many which he wrote, will enlighten, encourage and challenge the earnest seeker of God's truth.
