Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die

Prolific author John Piper has given us another look into the holiness of God and the grace of Christ, in this his latest work. As in all his works Piper has a deep respect for the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. He wants his readers to experience satisfying holiness that proceeds from the grace of God through the person of Christ. With each of the fifty reasons given why Jesus came to die, the author writes a page or two of commentary. The articles seem to revolve around two themes: 1) the person and work of Christ redeem us from the curse of the Law by taking our deserved punishment, and 2) Christ's power within us allows us to live an overcoming life that pleases God and allows unbelievers to see Christ through us. A few of his fifty reasons: To Become a Ransom for Many, To Show His Own Love for Us, To Take Away Our Condemnation, To Become for Us the Place Where We Meet God, To Enable Us to Live for Christ and Not for Ourselves, To Create a Band of Crucified Believers, and To Unleash the Power of God in the Gospel. For those who want to study this subject further, the author lists a few books that establish the historical reliability of the Bible's record.
