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. 448 pages, from IVP.

Recipient of a 1988 ECPA Gold Medallion Award! An Eternity 1987 Book of the Year! "I could never myself believe in God, if it were not for the cross ... In the real world of pain, how could one worship a God who was immune to it?" With compelling honesty John Stott confronts this generation with the centrality of the cross in God's redemption of the world -- a world now haunted by the memories of Auschwitz, the pain of oppression and the specter of nuclear war. Can we see triumph in tragedy, victory in shame? Why should an object of Roman distaste and Jewish disgust be the emblem of our worship and the axiom of our faith? And what does it mean for us today? Now from one of the foremost preachers and Christian leaders of our day comes theology at its readable best, a contemporary restatement of the meaning of the cross. At the cross Stott finds the majesty and love of God disclosed, the sin and bondage of the world exposed. More than a study of the atonement, this book brings Scripture into living dialog with Christian theology and the twentieth century. What emerges is a pattern for Christian life and worship, hope and mission. Destined to be a classic study of the center of our faith, Stott's work is the product of a uniquely gifted pastor, scholar and Christian statesman. His penetrating insight, charitable scholarship and pastoral warmth are guaranteed to feed both heart and mind.

This is a classic!
5 stars By Gary, Nov 22 2017
I read this book 20 years ago, and after all this years I still reading it. I recently brought the hard cover and use it in my bible study on the topic atonement.  Stott words on the Cross always carry me up when I encounter spiritual depression. He is just a great gift to the church.

Very Thorough
4 stars By YDLife, Apr 29 2015
I haven't read a book as thorough as this one in respect to the Cross and the Atonement. Stott carefully forms a very compelling theology, while addressing alternative views on certain related subjects through the lens of scripture. I particularly enjoy the last section that goes through how the work of Christ on the cross is to effect our daily living. I read it in conjunction with Leon Morris' "The Atonement" and recommend the same  (https:www.koorong.comsearchproductatonement-the-its-meaning-and-significance-leon-morris0877848262.jhtml)
