The Cross of Christ

The Cross of Christ

The Cross is the universal symbol of the Christian faith. But what does the Cross mean? Why did Jesus have to die?

In this magisterial and best-selling book, John Stott unpacks the significance of Christ’s cross and answers objections commonly brought against biblical teaching on the atonement.

Stott will help you discover how Jesus himself understood the cross, and how ‘Christ in our place’ is at the heart of its meaning. Understand what the cross achieved, and learn what it means to live under the cross.

This modern classic combines excellent biblical exposition, and a characteristically thoughtful study of Christian belief, with a searching call to the church to live under the cross.

This, more than any book he has written, is his masterpiece.

I have no hesitation in saying that this is the most enriching theological book I have ever read.

—AJITH FERNANDO

Outside of the Bible itself, this may be the best book I’ve ever read on the cross of Christ. It is thorough, thoughtful, and timely.

—Ann Graham Lotz

There are not many ‘must-read’ books—books that belong on every minister’s shelf, and on the shelves of thoughtful laypersons who want a better grasp of what is central in Scripture—but this is one of them

—D.A. Carson

As relevant today as when it first appeared, The Cross of Christ is more than a classic. It restates in our own time the heart of the Christian message.
