Picture of The Cross of Christ

The Cross of Christ

By John Stott

The Cross is the universal symbol of the Christian faith. But what does the Cross mean? Why did Jesus have to die?

In this magisterial and best-selling book, John Stott explains the significance of Christ's cross and answers objections commonly brought against biblical teaching on the atonement.

Stott will help you discover how Jesus himself understood the cross, and how 'Christ in our place' is at the heart of its meaning. Understand what the cross achieved, and learn what it means to live under the cross.

This modern classic combines excellent biblical exposition, and a characteristically thoughtful study of Christian belief, with a searching call to the church to live under the cross.
