    This is a tremendous Easter read Explains a lot about the importance of the Cross and also about atonement I gave it 3 stars because it had a lot of theological references I couldn t understand It therefore demands a second read.Here are some few notes I got from the book Don t forget the Cross because it was on the Cross, through the Cross and by the Cross that our Saviour performed His work of redemption and gathered His people for eternity An atonement was not merely hypothetically neces This is a tremendous Easter read Explains a lot about the importance of the Cross and also about atonement I gave it 3 stars because it had a...

    I had really enjoyed The Holiness of God by R.C Sproul so I had high hopes for this book, which I picked up for a Lent and Easter read Unfortunately, this one did not live up to my expectations The theology in this one was too verbose, too repetitive, and too lecturing It did no...

    Excellent exposition of the Cross and the theology of substitutionary atonement Sproul does a great job at explaining intimidating doctrines in simple terms.

    Very easy to read and inspiring presentation of the meaning of the Cross of Christ and why it was absolutely necessary R.C looks at the concept of atonement from different views we find in the Bible and shows that the necessity for the atonement of Christ finds its genesis, in the first instance, in the character of God Because He is holy and righteous, He cannot excuse sin Rather, He must pass judgment on it The judge of all the earth must do right Therefore, He must punish sinners or Very easy to read and inspiring presentation of the meaning of the Cross of Christ and why it was absolutely necessary R.C looks at the concept of atonement from different views we find in the Bible and shows that the necessity for the atonement of Christ...

    This book is excellent explanation of the Cross, and the Questions and Answers in the back are worth the price I always knew that Jesus had died for my sins on the Cross, and as I grew I began to have the vague idea that this was what was meant by Substitutionary Atonement I never thought there was another view of it I surely would not have been wise enough to defend the Biblical view against the heresies I had heard that I had the Righteousness of Christ, but did not know if that was diffe This book is excellent explanation of the Cross, and the Questions and Answers in the back are worth the price I always knew that Jesus had died for my sins on the Cross, and as I grew I began to have the vague idea that this was what was meant by Substitutionary Atonement I never thought there was another view of it I surely would not have been wise enough to defend the Biblica...

    A short, winsome presentation of the classic Protestant view of the cross Sproul doesn t break any new ground with this volume, but, like most of Sproul s writings, it s warm and devotional without sacrificing doctrinal precision.The first two chapters deal with the need of the atonement and the justice of God.Chapters 3 5 deal with metaphors of the atonement, but he rightly sees penal substitution at the heart of Christianity If you take away the substitutionary atonement, you empty the cr A short, winsome presentation of the classic Protestant view of the cross Sproul doesn t break any new ground with this volume, but, like most of Sproul s writings, it s warm and devotional without sacrificing doctrinal precision.The first two chapters deal with the need of the atonement and the justice of God.Chapters 3 5 deal with metaphors of the atonement, but he rightly sees penal substitution at the heart of Christianity If you take away the substitutionary atonement, you empty the cross of its meaning and drain all the significance of the passion of our Lord himself, 81.Chapter 6 deals with depravity and justification.Chapter 7 presents Christ as the Su...

    This is an excellent little book on the cross and what exactly Jesus did on it Sproul does an excellent job of exploring Christ s sacrifice on the cross and why exactly that specific act is central to Christianity He does use a decent amount of Christian vernacular, but he also does a pretty good job of explaining thetechnical termsI would recommend this to any believer who desires to read a little deeper on Christianity It is a smaller, gift sized book, so it s not very intimidating B This is an excellent little book on the cross and what exactly Jesus did on it Sproul does an excellent job of exploring Christ s sacrifice on the cross and why exactly that specific act is central to Christianity He does use a decent amount of Christian vernacular, but he also does a pretty good job of explaining thetechnical termsI would recommend this to any believer who desires to read a little deeper on Christianity It is a smaller, gift sized book, so it s not very intimidating But, if someone isn t very interested in reading something that dives a little below the surface of Christianity, then they might become a little bogged down in the writing It is a very well written book, but I think it would have a harder time holding the attention of a skeptic.That said, the theology expressed within is solidly reformed so be forewarned if you re not of that persuasion Then again, in my opinion, if you ve never wrestled with some of the calvinistic concepts of salvation you need...

    R.C Sproul is an excellent author and can explain things very clearly Here are some of my favorite quotes thoughts from the book If anything has been lost from our culture, it is the idea that human beings are privately, personally, individually, ultimately, inexorably accountable to God for their lives But if people understood that there is a holy God and that sin is an offense against that holy God, they would break down the doors of our churches and ask, What must I do to be saved The p R.C Sproul is an excellent author and can explain things very clearly Here are some of my favorite quotes thoughts from the book If anything has been lost from our culture, it is the idea that human beings are privately, personally, individually, ultimately, inexorably accountable to God for their lives But if people understood that there is a holy God and that sin is an offense against that holy God, they would break down the doors of our churches and ask, What must I do to be saved The prevailing notion of justification in Western culture today is justification by death It s assumed that all one has to do to be received into the everlasting arms of God is to die God is loving, but a major part of what He loves is His own perfect character, with a major aspect being the importance of maintaining justice and righteousness Though God par...

    Sproul is one of the few authors I read without having to wonder about his theological trustworthiness He teaches soundly, a true scholar with a talent of explanation.This book is a jewel amongst crucifixion writings The bare historical data about the crucifixion, writes Sproul in chapter seven, is that Jesus was executed by the Romans by being affixed to a cross outside Jerusalem Our concern, however, is not so much with what happened but with the meaning of the crucifixion The small book Sproul is one of the few authors I read without having to wonder about his theological trustworthiness He teaches soundly, a true scholar with a talent of explanation.This book is a jewel amongst crucifixion writings The bare historical data about the crucifixion, writes Sproul in chapter seven, is that Jesus was executed by the Romans by being affixed to a cross outside Jerusalem Our concern, however, is not so much with what happened b...

    A really helpful book Really easily read but yet theologically deep A memorable passage that is so sad but so true talks about justification Some have justification by faith, some by works but so many by death So many people think that no matter what, when they die they will automatic...
