LEAHY FIVE-PACK: THE CROSS HE BORE; IS IT NOTHING TO YOU?, THE VICTORY OF THE LAMB; SATAN CAST OUT & THE HAND OF GOD
Frederick Leahy

THE FOLLOWING BOOKS WILL CARRY YOU TO THE CROSS AND THROUGH THE CROSS TO GLORY!

(1) THE CROSS HE BORE: Meditations Upon the Sufferings of the Redeemer by Frederick Leahy

Frederick Leahy spent a lifetime in the ministry of the Word. In these pages, preacher, pastor and theologian come together in a happy unity. No words are wasted. There is nothing of the frothy and insubstantial. Here is satisfying truth, painstakingly quarried and crafted for the needs of God’s people. A judicious selection of gems from the writings of others provides further enrichment and stimulus to thought.

TIM CHALLIES wrote the following helpful commendation of this small book-

"Sometimes I read a book that has come with such numerous and lofty recommendations that really it can only be disappointing. Having heard so much about how the book will change my life and cause my faith to grow in leaps and bounds, I have often found the reality to be disappointing. Conversely, sometimes a book comes unhyped and unheralded and takes my heart and mind by storm. Such is the case with 'The Cross He Bore' by Frederick Leahy.

Truthfully, I do not remember where I first heard of this book. I was surprised one day to see it turn up in the mail and I soon realized that at one point I had added it to my Amazon wish list. I knew nothing about it other than what the cover told me: “Meditations on the sufferings of the Redeemer.” Edward Donnelly writes in the Foreword that this book has three virtues: it provides solid instruction; gives full play to a disciplined and sanctified imagination; and it recalls the neglected art of meditation. He says further that “in rereading these chapters, I found myself more than once compelled by emotion to stop – and then to worship. I cannot help feeling that this is exactly how they were written and that the author’s chief desire is that each of us who reads should be brought to gaze in fresh understanding and gratitude upon ‘the Son of God,’ who loved me and give himself for me.” As with Donnelly, I was often compelled to stop and worship, to stop and meditate, or to stop and dry my eyes, thanking Christ for His immeasurable sacrifice.

The book is comprised of thirteen chapters, each of which is a short meditation or reflection on a different aspect of Christ’s sacrifice, from the close of the Last Supper to the blotting of the sun from the sky while He hung on the cross. It truly strikes to the very heart of the Gospel.

But I hesitate to say more. Perhaps part of the beauty and significance of this book, was that it came unannounced. There was no lofty position for it to attain to. And perhaps it is best that way. And so I will leave it with merely my wholehearted recommendation and the knowledge that I will return to it often. This short book is an invaluable treasure and I am certain that the reflections it contains will stay with me and come to heart and mind whenever I meditate upon the cross of Christ."

ONE READER SAID-

"A great short book that focuses on the sacrifice of Christ. Leahy gives insights that I have not heard before. The line that touched my heart the most was “Lord, forgive us for the times we have read about Gethsemane with dry eyes.” This book cannot be read with dry eyes. Highly recommended."

(2) IS IT NOTHING TO YOU? The Unchanging Significance of the Cross by Frederick Leahy

The cross of Jesus Christ proclaims a powerful and timeless message to all men and women everywhere. Through careful and patient explanation, Fred Leahy convinces us of its relevance for life in the twenty-first century. Here is a man who has good news to share with others. His book draws our attention to some of the events surrounding the death of Jesus. Every chapter highlights what is central and most significant about the passion of the Christ, calling on us to stop and think about issues we cannot afford to ignore.

‘Is is nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow, which was brought upon me, which the Lord inflicted on the day of his fierce anger’ (Lam. 1:12).

(3) THE VICTORY OF THE LAMB: Christ's Triumph Over Sin, Death and Satan by Frederick Leahy

At Calvary, the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, was not a victim of circumstances but a victor over circumstances: ‘The conflict at Calvary was the crucial and determining encounter between the Lamb of God and Satan…At the cross, Christ won and Satan lost, and Satan and his fellow-spirits knew it…There is liberation. Christ has won. Actual victory! That is something to preach!’

This is the theme which thrills all the redeemed in heaven. Frederick Leahy believes that it should also be their constant study while on earth. In this book he traces the theme of Christ’s triumph over sin, death and Satan from the first promise of redemption in Genesis 3:15 to the shout of triumph in Revelation 5:12 ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain…!’

The Victory of the Lamb is a companion volume to Satan Cast Out, the author’s much-appreciated study of the biblical teaching on Christ’s victory over all the powers of darkness.

(4) SATAN CAST OUT: A Study in Biblical Demonology

Leahy presents a lucid, biblical account of Christian teaching on such issues as the existence of angels – good and evil; the present position and strategy of Satan; the witness of Old and New Testament to demonic activity; the demonic in church history; and the challenge of the demons to the church of Christ, especially on the mission field.

While taking our ‘adversary the devil’ seriously, Leahy constantly emphasizes the victory of Christ over him, and the fact that, in the words of John Calvin, ‘The whole of Satan’s kingdom is subject to the authority of Christ.’

A REVIEW

"The aim of this book is to show the relevance of the Bible’s teaching on the sovereignty of God to our daily lives. In 10 chapters Fred Leahy shows how the sovereign Lord is the hand that creates, governs, provides, redeems, keeps, guides, chastens, blesses, enables and judges.

Mr. Leahy writes in an accessible, yet deep way. He grounds all he says in the scriptures and then brings it to life with anecdotes from the lives of famous Christians, illustrations from daily life and quotations from other men and women. He has also made the book up to date by referring to current events and today’s religious fads.

There have been many good books written on the sovereignty of God, notably that by A W Pink. Where this book excels is in making this wonderful doctrine so practically helpful for the Christian walk. This is not a dry scholarly work of a theologian, but a lively read by a mature Christian and experienced pastor.

When the author went to post the manuscript of this book to the publisher his wife asked him if he would like to buy a new notebook to begin his next work. The 83 year old man paused for a moment and then said “I think I have said all I want to say.” That evening he passed from this world. I am so glad that the Lord spared him to finish this book. It is a treasure that I am sure I will refer to again and again."
