Views of Calvary

No matter what changes and challenges we face in life, the plan, purpose, and power of the cross stay the same.

In Views of Calvary, renowned inspirational artist Rob E. Holt presents diverse images of a singular cross shot over a two-year period. He discovered this white cross a little over a year after God took his wife to heaven early.

For Rob, widowhood meant seeking out and soaking in many sunsets, always searching for new vantage points, until he stumbled upon this cross on an expansive, lonely hill. This cross became his secret hiding place, his personal prayer closet.

Rob kept going back to the foot of that cross to focus on Christ, abiding in His gaze, and imparting peace and wonder through the majestic photographs he captured.

In Views of Calvary, Rob has paired 31 of these images with their own devotion, inspired by the title of that image. Through his words and photography, you’ll be reminded that while everything around your life may be in flux, the plan, purpose, and power of the cross never moves. It is a safe harbor in the midst of any storm.

My History


After many years as a traditional photographer, I lost my wife to cancer. I then began seeking out sunsets and skyscapes to contemplate and photograph. This hillside cross became my secret place, my hiding place for a few years.


I began to spend time alone with the solitary cross on that empty hill, which became my place of solace and artistic expression. About a year into creating the collection, the ground was broken ahead of the construction of the Valley Christian School campus.


After shooting the cross for a few years, I toured a gallery show and published a book titled What the Cross Means to Me by Harvest House Publishing. My newest book, Views of Calvary is set to release in the fall of 2022.


I apply my cross on a wide variety of products, including wall decor, banners, posters, calendars, bookmarks as well both greeting cards and prayer cards. You can learn more about licensing options of these cross images at
