Outrageous Mercy: Rediscovering the Radical Nature of the Cross by William P. Farley

192 pages | $12.99 | Paperback


How can God demand justice and be merciful at the same time? What meeting ground exists between one who is infinitely holy and those who are utterly sinful?

The cross of Christ answers these questions—and many more—so why do we take such an important symbol so lightly? Why do we print it on bumper stickers and wear it as a fashion accessory but seldom reflect on its significance?

Bill Farley urges you to examine the cross closely and discover the rich spiritual truths deep in its grain. Journey with him to the foot of the cross and learn new, transforming lessons from Jesus’ suffering.

Whether you’re a new believer, an experienced Christian, or a veteran of ministry, making the cross central to your life will give you fresh insights into God’s purposes for you.

The spirit of the cross is revolutionary. It tells you everything you need to know about God, positively impacting your relationships with relatives, friends—even enemies.

Journey inside and see why the cross is most valuable not when worn around the neck, but when embraced by the heart.


“Farley has given us a beautiful book that ‘lifts high the cross’ and thus imparts mercy and grace for the Christian life. Outrageous Mercy is a book to read and reread.”

R. Kent Hughes

“Bill Farley has created a winsome reminder of how essential, radical, and mind-blowingly merciful the gospel actually is.”

Carolyn McCulley
