Full Product Description
Attempts to make sense of the Bible that do not integrate the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus are doomed to failure. Jesus' own followers did not expect him to be crucified; they certainly did not expect him to rise again. Yet after these events their thinking and attitudes were so transformed that they could see the sheer inevitability that Jesus would die on a cross and leave an empty tomb behind, and absolutely everything in their lives was changed.
However much the Bible insists on the historicity of these events, it is as important to know what they mean as to know that they happened.
With clarity and conviction, D. A. Carson unpacks what some of the earliest witnesses wrote, in five New Testament texts, to provide an introductory explanation of Jesusí death and resurrection.
Scandalous by D. A. Carson was published by Inter-Varsity Press in February 2010 and is our 17176th best seller. The ISBN for Scandalous is 9781844744169.

ScandalousDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
Don Carson explains clearly and in depth the core of Christian belief – Christ’s death and resurrection and what they mean. He uses five passages from the Bible: Matthew 27:27-51 – The Ironies of the Cross; Romans 3:21-26 – The Centre of the Whole Bible; Revelation 12 – The Strange Triumph of the Slaughtered Lamb; John 11:1-53 – A Miracle Full of Surprises; and John 20:24-31 – Doubting the Resurrection of Jesus, and uses them to demonstrate the Person of Christ, the fundamental issues of sin and atonement, the importance of proclaiming the gospel above all else, the outrage of death and the triumph of the resurrection. This is pivotal, counter-cultural stuff excellently and uncompromisingly expressed, and I thoroughly recommend it, especially for those engaged in explaining these matters to those outside the church, though regular reminders of the truths highlighted here would be of benefit to all of us.
