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.
“I well remember the excitement of reading The Cross of Christ when it was first published. It expanded my mind and warmed my heart like nothing I had read before or have read since, apart from the Bible.” Vaughan Roberts
“John Stott brings together the capacity to inspire a devotion of mind and heart to the Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that this book will be a continual reminder of the centrality of the cross for human life and hope.”
“Thorough, thoughtful and timely. As I read The Cross of Christ my mind was challenged, my heart was warmed, my faith was strengthened, and my focus was sharpened on the cross.”
Anne Graham Lotz
“This book is a timeless classic deservedly republished for a new generation of readers – it is an illuminating theological gem.”
