This is one of the best and most helpful Christian books I’ve ever read.
I can remember first reading this book over 20 years ago. It made a profound impact on me then and has on subsequent readings never ceased to increase both my love and knowledge for the one who died for me on a cross. I need to be clear that this is a big read and is certainly not light bedtime reading (Though personally I enjoy demanding books at bedtime). It is a university level read, though if you enjoy reading, love Jesus and want to grow in your closeness to him then why not give it a go.
Don’t ever be afraid of reading a book with a dictionary to help. I do it all the time.
This is a book worthy of my effort, concentration and commitment. We tend to avoid those things which take time and work, sometimes avoiding the big investment which leads to rich reward. I would recommend any literate Christian to study this book. The back notes well describe the book.
In his magisterial and best-selling book, John Stott explains the significance of Christ’s cross and answers the objections commonly brought against biblical teaching on the atonement. This modern classic is as sharp and pertinent as ever it was. It combines an excellent biblical exposition, and a characteristically thoughtful study of Christian belief, with a searching call to live under the cross.
If two other people want to read this before Easter then let me know and we can organise meet ups to talk and support each other.
