We are going to be talking to a lady tonight who has written a book, Joy Beyond Agony.
Jane Roach, used to be training director for the massive Bible Study Fellowship International group, and she has written a book, all about the cross of Jesus, and how it ultimately leads to joy.
It is based on Hebrews 12:1-2.
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
