Watt, Gordon - The Meaning of the Cross: Studies of the Cross of Christ throughout the Bible
Soteriology (Salvation) Christology
9.x - 10.x
This book presents the message of the Cross in a clear and Biblical way. Watt presents the Cross throughout the Bible, and how it holds the central place in salvation, victory, power and service.
Watt examines the doctrinal meaning of the cross and how it relates to other aspects of Christian faith and living, reinforcing the prominent place the message of the cross should have in our daily lives as well as in all church services.
Isolating the cross from the Christian's life, removes the meaning and purpose of Salvation and redemption, as well as the reason for witness before the world, along with the source for all spiritual guidance and divine power. It is imperative that all Christians get back to the simple message of Salvation and consecration, and a real understanding of the cross in faith and conduct.
About Gordon Watt
Gordon Beattie Watt was born on September 25, 1865 in Stonehaven, Kincardine, Scotland, in the church parsonage.
He received an M.A. from the University of Aberdeen, in 1888.
He became the minister of the High Kirk, in Kilmarnock, Scotland, in 1896.
In April, 1901, Gordon was 35 and working as a minister of High Parish Kirk. He was living with his mother, Elizabeth, who was 70.
On July 15, 1902, he was married to Agnes Michie Dobie at St. Michael’s Church of N. Merchiston, Edinburg.
From 1912 to 1921, he was the minister of the stately yet beautiful and recently rebuilt (1906) St. Laurence Church of Forres, Moray, Scotland.
As with many of the popular Holy Spirit led preachers of the time, he entered the ministry and it was 15 years later when he finally came to the end of himself and quit trying to work for the Lord, and instead allowed God to work through him, making God his All in All.
Gordon Watt was one of the better known preachers (along with Griffith Thomas and Charles Trumbull) at the early American Keswick meetings. These meetings were held in Northfield, Massachusetts; Stony Brook, New York; Cedar Lake, Indiana; and the permanent “America’s Keswick” in New Jersey.
