The Cross of Christ by John R.W. Stott was published by Intervarsity Press in October 2006 and is our 12774th best seller. The ISBN for The Cross of Christ is 9781844741557.
A 2014 reprint of the 2006 Centenary edition of John Stott's amazing work on the Cross of Christ first printed in 1986, with the study guide that was later produced in 1989 included in it.
This is a weighty book indded as one would expect of such an important subject, but it is written in Stott's normal style and is therefore very readable , and yet with no lack of depth and insight to it for all it's approachableness.
Within the span of the 400+ pages Stott provides a clear explanation of the biblical and historical basis of most of the doctrine surrounding the crucifixion of Christ, however it is not just dry facts, there are here interesting and challenging questions that encourage us to think more about that which we sometimes simply just take as a given.
A modern classic to be sure and worthy of this reprint.

Study guide by David Stone
"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." - Peter Jensen
"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." - J. John
"In the twenty years since its publication, John Stott’s The Cross of Christ has established itself as the most respected and authoritative evangelical writing on this most important of subjects. It remains the standard work on its great themes, inspiring, challenging, encouraging and informing its many readers.
This, then, is a book that will amply repay study. Its continuing impact and relevance after the passage of twenty years since its publication suggest that this book has all the makings of a classic – a work written in and for one generation, which its successors continue to find important and illuminating." - Alister McGrath
