Recipient of a 1988 ECPA Gold Medallion Award!An Eternity 1987 Book of the Year!"I could never myself believe in God, if it were not for the cross . . . In the real world of pain, how could one worship a God who was immune to it?" With compelling honesty John Stott confronts this generation with the centrality of the cross in God's redemption of the world -- a world now haunted by the memories of Auschwitz, the pain of oppression and the specter of nuclear war.Can we see triumph in tragedy, victory in shame? Why should an object of Roman distaste and Jewish disgust be the emblem of our worship and the axiom of our faith? And what does it mean for us today?Now from one of the foremost preachers and Christian leaders of our day comes theology at its readable best, a contemporary restatement of the meaning of the cross. At the cross Stott finds the majesty and love of God disclosed, the sin and bondage of the world exposed.More than a study of the atonement, this book brings Scripture into living dialog with Christian theology and the twentieth century. What emerges is a pattern for Christian life and worship, hope and mission.Destined to be a classic study of the center of our faith, Stott's work is the product of a uniquely gifted pastor, scholar and Christian statesman. His penetrating insight, charitable scholarship and pastoral warmth are guaranteed to feed both heart and mind.… (mehr)

Stott's, The Cross of Christ, is a very good book but not always an easy read. Stott provides a detailed examination of the meaning of the cross and God's sacrifice and explores how that should impact the believer's life. ( )

This is a very fine book that I hope to reread every 3-5 years. It covers critical areas: the centrality of the cross as Christ described His mission; the centrality of it in the epistles; the true sinfulness and guilt of men; the just wrath of God; the need for satisfaction of wrath; substitution; propitiation, justification, redemption, reconciliation; the cross as a display of God's justice and love; victory in the cross; and others.

This is Stott's best book and the best book I have read on the importance of the cross. Every believer should take this seriously and take the tie to read it carefully. For many today it will not be the easiest read but the cross is not easy and it is a necessary read. One of my top five books.

Lots of amazing (and important) stuff in here, but not an easy or quick read. Took me almost five months (not solidly of course) and after that I'm sure there would be an awful lot to be gained from reading it again. Hopefully I will at some point in the future. ( )
