The universal symbol of the Christian faith is neither a crib nor a manger, but a gruesome cross. Yet many people are unclear about its meaning, and cannot understand why Christ had to die.
In this 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.
John Stott’s 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 the church to live under the cross.
- If not the best christian book?
If not the best, then definitely one of the best Christian books that will ever be written. Every Christian should have it and listen to it.
Stott was and is well known as trustworthy teacher and in this time, were we are flooded by spoiled theology this one is one of the soberest you will ever get over.
Buy it, read it, love it, pray over it and live it …
- An excellent read
Thought he wouldn't be able to catch my attention throughout the whole book on theology, but Stott is such a great writer and very rich and even practical issues are delved into.
- You want to hear this.
Read by Simon Vance. Simon does a fantastic job reading this book. I purchased the hardback version a couple years ago, and had difficulty getting past the first 2 chapters because of the scholarly wording of this book is not meant for those with a 5th grade reading level. I listen and read read the book at the same time. I'm up to chapter 5 and the wisdom Dr. Stott gives is life changing. Trust me. Get this on audio and listen to it as you read along. It will open your eyes in a way you never realized.

- So good!
Probably my favorite audio book of all time. I keep listening to it again and again. Vance does such a great job in this work. And Stott - this is his masterpiece. It's so good! He's such a good teacher. He presents everything so clearly and thoroughly, and beautifully. (But you should see Amazon.com's reviews for the book's content. "This is one of those rare must-own, must-read books."-D.A. Carson, etc.) But the combination of Stott and Vance really is great. I think reading this on my own, Greek words like "hilaskomai" would have scared me or bored me. But with Vance reading it, the whole discussion really comes alive.
- A great book, from a man...
A great book, from a man of God. Gotta love John Stott's balance and wisdom.
