Overview

“Let me get this straight—God sentenced his own son to death for something he didn’t do, and you’re inviting me to become his child, too?

Overview

“Let me get this straight—God sentenced his own son to death for something he didn’t do, and you’re inviting me to become his child, too?

I’m not sure I want to do that, given how he treats his kids! What kind of a father is he, anyway?”

Have you ever questioned why Jesus had to die to save you from your sin? Have you wondered why a loving heavenly Father would punish his innocent Son in your place? Would you like to have a deeper understanding of Jesus’ atoning sacrifice and how it applies to your life? If so, Cross Purposes is the book is for you! Cross Purposes examines the basis and purpose for Jesus’ atoning work on the cross. Arguing against the notion that Jesus died so we could be forgiven, this book suggests Jesus died so we could embrace the forgiveness we already have! Firmly rooted in Scripture and faithful to the understanding of the earliest Christians, this work takes issue with the judicial view of the cross that is so prevalent in today’s Western church culture. Instead, Cross Purposes offers a very relational and hopeful perspective that will transform your understanding of the atonement.

Written in a clear, straightforward style and complete with discussion questions for small group reflection, Cross Purposes invites you to sit down with a warm beverage and revel in the incredible fact that you are deeply loved by God.
