Review:

A 2014 reprint of the 2006 Centenary edition of John Stott's amazing work on the Cross of Christ first printed in 1986, with the study guide that was later produced in 1989 included in it.
This is a weighty book indded as one would expect of such an important subject, but it is written in Stott's normal style and is therefore very readable , and yet with no lack of depth and insight to it for all it's approachableness.

Within the span of the 400+ pages Stott provides a clear explanation of the biblical and historical basis of most of the doctrine surrounding the crucifixion of Christ, however it is not just dry facts, there are here interesting and challenging questions that encourage us to think more about that which we sometimes simply just take as a given.

A modern classic to be sure and worthy of this reprint.
