The Cross Maker

The Cross Maker Audio Drama

The Cross Maker - A Dramatic Audio Presentation

In 1st-century Jerusalem, it is a time of unrest and oppression by the might of the Roman Empire. The Cross Maker is the story of a man whose dream was shattered by the strictures of a hated government. It is the story of a life that was forever changed--first by cruelty and hatred, then by the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. This audio dramatization chronicles the journey of the carpenter who crafted the instrument that brought death to one, and life to millions.
