The Cross is Not Enough

Full Product Description

‘The Cross is Not Enough’, by two prominent Australian theologians, is a valiant attempt to reconnect Christianity with its most important and pivotal doctrine – the resurrection.

•    Has Christianity become so focused on the cross that we’ve lost sight of the aftermath?
•    What happens when we forget the resurrection?
•    What knock-on effects do this have on our worldview, evangelism and Christian practice?

Ross Clifford and Phillip Johnson explore these troubling questions and more in their book – ‘The Cross is Not Enough’. Together they explain how the resurrection has played a vital role in the Church and compel us to restore this linchpin doctrine into the centre of everything we do.

With chapters on other religions, the human psyche and cultural studies, this challenging book aims to explain the theological significance of Christ’s resurrection is the key to living a Christian life in our postmodern society.

The Cross is Not Enough by Philip Johnson; Ross Clifford was published by Baker in January 2012 and is our 38033rd best seller. The ISBN for The Cross is Not Enough is 9780801014611.

Publisher's Description

If Christ had not risen from the dead, if God's plan for redemption had ended at the cross, what would our faith look like? Have we become so fixated on the cross that we have lost an understanding of the centrality of the resurrection? And if we ignore the resurrection, what effect does that have on our worldview, our evangelism, and our Christian practice?

In The Cross Is Not Enough, Ross Clifford and Philip Johnson explore how the resurrection of Christ has been understood in times past and restore this linchpin doctrine to its rightful place as the basis of our hope, our worldview, and the way we live our lives. They compare Christianity's unique understanding of resurrection to other world religions and explore why the resurrection connects so readily with the human psyche.

Pastors, teachers, students, and anyone involved in ministry will benefit from this insightful and engaging treatment of Christianity's most important doctrine.
