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.
