Description

In this book, Dr. R.C. Sproul surveys the great work accomplished by Jesus Christ through His crucifixion — the redemption of God’s people. Dr. Sproul considers the atonement from numerous angles and shows conclusively that the cross was absolutely necessary if anyone was to be saved.

Opening the Scriptures, Dr. Sproul shows that God Himself provided salvation by sending Jesus Christ to die on the cross, and the cross was always God’s intended method by which to bring salvation. The Truth of the Cross is an uncompromising reminder that the atonement of Christ is an absolutely essential doctrine of the Christian faith, one that should be studied and understood by all believers.

    Dr. Sproul has been instrumental in helping me live a cross-centered life. There are few people who have taught me more about Jesus. In Dr. Sproul's The Truth of the Cross, you get a 167 page survey of the atonement of Jesus Christ. Below are how the ten chapters of the book are divided. The last chapter consists of nine thought-provoking questions. 1. The Necessity of an Atonement 2. The Just God 3. Debtors, Enemies, and Criminals 4. Ransomed from Above 5. The Saving Substitute 6. Made Like His Brethren 7. The Suffering Servant 8. The Blessing and the Curse 9. A Secure Faith 10. Questions and Answers The Truth of the Cross is not fun reading, yet it was a book I wanted to read and is the type of reading we should all undertake. Although the topic is complex, Dr. Sproul explains the atonement in a way that many can understand. I'm thankful for Dr. Sproul and the impact he has made on me and on thousands of others. If you hold to an Arminian viewpoint, you may disagree with Dr. Sproul's take on various theological topics; however, I still strongly recommend The Truth of the Cross. Dr. Sproul provides solid Scripture references and logical arguments that everyone should consider - arguments that I wholeheartedly agree with and point me to the cross. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth. Isaiah 53:7
