- Book of the Month -The Passion of Jesus Christ by John Piper
Denying that Christ suffered & died is like denying the Holocaust. For some it is simply too horrific to affirm. Others suspect it is an elaborate religious conspiracy to coerce sympathy. Those who deny either event live in a historical dreamworld. Jesus suffered unspeakably & died. This book shows that the gore of Christ's suffering is turned to glory by the enormity & diversity of what His death achieved. To do this, John Piper uncovers 50 accomplishments of Christ's suffering. He shuns embellishment and shows from the Bible key evidence for each outcome of Christ's death. When it is all said & done, the most crucial question is: Why? Why did Christ suffer and die? The answer has everything to do with you.
