What Was God Doing on the Cross?

In stock

A book that brings to life the story of the cross and the resurrection--and impresses upon us the almost unbelievable truth that God allowed himself to be executed for our sake. McGrath challenges us to think and speak about the cross with freshness, directness, and vitality.

111 pages.

McGrath, a lecturer in Christian doctrine at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, believes in the power of Christ’s cross and literal resurrection. In this book he is seeking to reach the masses, who have no idea about theories of the atonement. He uses modern, relevant illustrations. Christ’s victory on Calvary and at Easter is pictured as a battlefield, a court of law, a rehabilitation clinic, release from prison, and healing in a hospital. How does one get to benefit from this work of Christ? By faith, which McGrath sees as an open hand and an open mouth to receive salvation as a gift. "The gospel constantly stresses that everything which we could never achieve or ever hope to purchase is offered to us freely. That is what grace is all about-the graciousness of God in giving us things we do not deserve and dared not hope for".
