Christian faith is centred in the cross. And the Christian life is likewise rooted in the cross. These 13 studies are designed to bring us to the heart of the cross with an understanding of what was accomplished there on our behalf. After three introductory studies, we come to the heart of the cross, looking at forgiveness of sin and emphasising a truly biblical understanding of the notions of satisfaction and substitution. Then we move on to the three great achievements of the cross: saving sinners, revealing God and conquering evil. The final four studies grapple with areas often omitted from books on the cross: what it means for the Christian community to live under the cross. The cross transforms everything. It gives us a new worshipping relationship to God, a new incentive to give ourselves in mission, a new love for our enemies and a new courage to face the perplexities of suffering.

"I always count on InterVarsity Press's LifeGuide Bible Studies to provide quality, in depth studies that are well worth the student's time. The questions for each week's study are always insightful and thought provoking. When I saw John Stott's studies on The Cross and Christian Leadership, I knew the combination of his exceptional teaching and LifeGuide's format would be great. This is a good resource for a small group that really is interested in going deeper and growing in their knowledge of theology and personal faith in Christ."--Joan Tyvoll, 1340magbooks.com, April 2009About the Author:
