Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


"If I want a school where love is taught and revealed, I must seek the academy of Calvary!" This is the focus of John Henry Jowett's book School of Calvary. He strives to live his life with Calvary, the place of Jesus' death, always on his mind. Jowett outlines Christ's journey from the Last Supper to Easter Sunday in language that is flowery and beautifully chosen. Readers will quickly become aware of Jowett's intelligence and deep study of the subject, and will benefit from his gentle sentences and deliberate message. As a preacher, Jowett always wrote his sermons down in full, and School of Calvary has a similar feel. He was a dedicated minister who served a number of churches with his respectful and caring manner, and his writing reflects that. Readers looking for a new way of life will be interested in Jowett's Calvary-centered philosophy.
