The power of the Cross
In a world where Christians are challenged to demonstrate the uniqueness of Jesus and the power of the gospel, we are forced to say that the weakness of God is greater than the strength of men, and the foolishness of God is greater than the wisdom of man. John Stott tells us that Christ's uniqueness, indeed the uniqueness of the Christian Faith lies in the death of Christ on the cross as substitionary sacrifice for sin. Stott lays the importance of this event by examining Old Testament prescedent, demonstrating human need, and pondering the idea held by Christians that God Himself died on a cross. A challenging book that gets to the point of Christian thought, faith, and grace. A must read for everyone who ever had questions about the cross and God's grace.

Excellent Book for Faith and Education
Stott's book is written from a solid perspective and requires some thought to read but worth the effort. It is a good choice for a discussion group for an ongoing class or meeting group.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
