CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED is the gospel of Jesus Christ condensed in a phrase. This book answers some essential questions of the Christian faith. Who is Jesus Christ? Is Jesus Christ God? What is the gospel according to the Bible? Why did Jesus have to die? What should we think of Jesus today? Did Jesus suffer the wrath of God upon the cross? What does it mean to be a born again Christian? What are the Christian essentials? Who Jesus Christ is and what He has done is the sum of the gospel.
The truth of Jesus Christ crucified is a supremely important and essential truth because it is a heavenly truth condescending unto fallen man from the throne of God. Not only is the truth of Christ crucified a supremely important and essential truth because of its heavenly revelation, but is also preeminent because of its divine work of redemption.
The person of Jesus Christ should never be divorced from the work of Jesus Christ. What He has done flows from who He is; and who Christ is necessitates what He does. Jesus is not merely the Christ, but He is the Christ who was crucified. Sadly, too many churches, too many preachers of the gospel, and too many professing Christians are losing this central and essential truth.
In this book, Christians will rejoice in a reemphasis of the Biblical truths exalting Jesus Christ. Non-Christians will gain understanding of what Biblical Christians actually believe concerning their God, His Messiah and His work of salvation to sinful men.
American churches are standing for something other than, or something more (?!) than Christ, and Him crucified. My friends, this ought not so to be.
