The book contains 12 lessons to be applied for personal growth in the lives of both the seeker and the Christian. While the most important lesson learned from the thief on the cross may be that it is never too late to choose Christ, there are numerous life lessons to be unlocked from the brief account of this repentant criminal on the cross next to Jesus. As the reader journeys back to the hill at Calvary, he is invited to interact with Scripture at a deeper level and fix his eyes and his heart upon the brief exchange between two dying men: one serving a sentence as the just punishment for his own sins and the One serving the sentence for the rest of mankind. In just five verses from Lukes Gospel capturing the words spoken between the two near the hour of their deaths, God reveals twelve life-changing lessons that will strengthen the hearts of believers and open the eyes of the unbelievers. As the hymn proclaims, The Savior is waiting- why dont you let Him come in.
