What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Here is vintage J. I. Packer accompanied by some younger friends. The magisterial but too-little-known essay 'What Did the Cross Achieve?' is itself worth the price of the whole book. And there is much more besides. Here, then, are gospel riches, and In My Place Condemned He Stood marks the spot where the buried treasure lies. Start digging!"
Sinclair B. Ferguson, Professor of Systematic Theology, Redeemer Seminary, Dallas, Texas

"The essays in this volume by Packer and Dever are some of the most important things I have ever read. If you want to preach in such a way that results in real conversions and changed lives, you should master the approach to the cross laid out in this book."
Timothy J. Keller, Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City; best-selling author, The Reason for God

"This book contains some of the finest essays that have ever been written on the death of Christ."
David F. Wells, Distinguished Senior Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Every student and pastor should own this volume, for the contents are so precious that they deserve more than one reading."
Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Associate Dean of the School of Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Writing with the precision of learned theologians and the passion of forgiven sinners, J. I. Packer and Mark Dever explain the meaning of atonement, substitution, and propitiation-not just as words, but as saving benefits we can only receive from a crucified Savior."
Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College

I found this challenging to read but well worth it. I've always realized the sacrifice Christ made for us in terms of the physical torture and death, but it was only a few years ago that I began to understand how He really suffered. The spiritual pain He felt when my sins and the sins of the whole world were placed upon Him and separated Him from the Father was infinitely worse than the horrific physical pain He felt. In My Place Condemned He Stood reminded me of the magnitude of Jesus' sacrifice and made me even more grateful for His atonement.
