This short book addresses five key Bible passages, meditating on the most scandalous aspects of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
Don Carson’s writing is clear, easy-to-understand and easy-to-follow, and fundamentally biblical. The themes he picks up are controversial because they are so orthodox, but there’s nothing old-fashioned or boring here.
There’s probably relatively little in here which will be brand new to the more spiritually mature Christian, but there’s certainly not nothing, and the depth to which Carson goes is outstanding.
For that reason I’d recommend this book to absolutely any Christian out there. If you’ve never collapsed in awe of God’s mercy and power displayed on the cross, this book would be as good a place to start as any.
The audio version I listened to was enjoyable and clear. Thoroughly recommended.
I got this audiobook for free from christianaudio.com. I’m not required to give a positive review.
