A biblical journey of faith is a tightly scripted series of events divinely composed at the limits of creative imagination.
The second half of the cross is not just a New Testament concept. As Abraham leaves Haran and journeys towards Canaan, he is leaving behind his own Haran-based plans in favor of the new life-plan God has composed for him. Here begins the mysterious blend of God's sovereignty and mankind's free-will choice, combined within the dynamics of an individually tailored, God-composed life-script that requires subordination of our ways to God's higher plans for our lives. This is The Second Half of the Cross.
For a quick read, I recommend Chapter Four...Joseph, and Chapter Ten...Jesus. These are two of my favorite chapters in the book.
