The Cross

“The Missionary among Moslems (to whom the Cross of Christ is a stumbling block and the atonement foolishness) is driven daily to deeper meditation on the mystery of redemption, and to a stronger conviction that here is the very heart of our message and our mission …

The cross-jpgmore unbelievers deny its crucial character, the more do believers find in it the key to the mysteries of sin and suffering…  We find that, although the offence of the Cross remains, its magnetic power is irresistible.”

(Samuel M. Zwemer, in “Glory of the Cross” – as quoted by John Stott in “The cross of Christ“.  Zwemer laboured in Arabia an is sometimes called “the Apostle to Islam.”  He edited the Muslim Word for 40 years.)
