Amazing Book! John Piper breaks down 50 of the reasons that JESUS went to the cross. This book is very enlightening. Perfect for the Christian longing to know JESUS better and understand HIS passion and love for us.
John Piper comes through again in a very readable, easily understandable explanation of many of the reasons for Christ's Death. Each reason explained precisely and concisely in two pages or less. This book is great for evangelism and/or outreach or for personal study.
It's by John Piper, one of our great modern Christian authors (and I don't consider many of them great being fond of the classic authors), it is about our favorit subject, and its a very pretty book. What more can I say - its great!
Fifty reasons why Jesus came to die. The most important questions anyone can ask are: Why did he suffer so much? What has this to do with me? Finally, who sent him to his death? The answer to the l ast question is that God did. Jesus was God's Son.
This book fails to answer the questions. It gives fake/pat/child answers that can easily be argued against. Read my review on The Cast For Christ by Lee Strobel. This book is much like his - only not quite as bad. But don't waste your time for money, unless you want to learn some fake answers that never really answer the questions.
