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.

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.

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.

One of the best books ever written after the Bible. Every Bible believer should read it.

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
