Satisfaction through Substitution
In order for Christians to appreciate and enoy their assurance of salvation, it is only natural for them to understandly the purpose of the cross of Christ. Dr Stott in this wonderful book, "The Cross of Christ" gives a superb biblical exposition on this important topic. The first few chapters are slow, but once you get into the fourth chapter to the end, then it is thought provoking and biblically sound, especially the chapter on "the self-substitution of God". The real resons why God chose a cross is revealed. The answers to questions such as, why Jesus needed to die? Why is God the Father's wrath appeased by the death of His Son? Also, critical words such as justification, propitiation, redemption and sanctified are discussed and explained throughout the book. This book is heartily recommended for all those who want to get to the crux of the cross. A must read.
