This chapter argues that the cross is a brand symbol of the Christians. It is also the symbol of conquest, compassion, and through it, one can witness the suffering of God. The chapter adds that the cross embodies the truth which is both terrible and hopeful: death and triumph. It is a symbol inspiring a kind of wonder that leaves many out of words. There is nothing in Islam that can compare to this symbolic icon. The chapter states that if there is anything like a symbolic cross in Islam, Muslims will either reject or ignore its significance.
