Publisher's Summary

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.

Pithy implications of the cross of Christ

There's a lot to absorb from this book. I feel compelled to get the written version to highlight the many succinct points Stott makes. I'm sure I will listen to this audiobook more than once. It sometimes seems to follow rabbit trails, but always comes back to the cross. Stott treats a lot of heterodox theological issues in juxtaposition to orthodox ones, so it can be hard to follow if you can't listen straight through in one sitting.
