The Cross of Christ

Full Product Description

  • Want to know more of the Cross' meaning?
  • This classic book unravels the poignant truth of Christ's sacrifice
  • You will find a new way to live in the light of the Cross
The universal symbol of the Christian faith is neither a crib nor a manger, but a gruesome cross. Yet many people are unclear about its meaning, and cannot understand why Christ had to die.

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

John Stott's modern classic is as sharp and pertinent as ever it was. It combines an excellent biblical exposition, and a characteristically thoughtful study of Christian belief, with a searching call to the church to live under the cross.

With study guide and a fore word by Alister McGrath.

The Cross of Christ by John R.W. Stott was published by Intervarsity Press in October 2006 and is our 3388th best seller. The ISBN for The Cross of Christ is 9781844741557.

From the foreword

"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
