One thought on “The Truth of the Cross

  1. This is a tremendous Easter read Explains a lot about the importance of the Cross and also about atonement I gave it 3 stars because it had a lot of theological references I couldn t understand It therefore demands a second read.Here are some few notes I got from the book Don t forget the Cross because it was on the Cross, through the Cross and by the Cross that our Saviour performed His work of redemption and gathered His people for eternity An atonement was not merely hypothetically necessary [...]


  2. I had really enjoyed The Holiness of God by R.C Sproul so I had high hopes for this book, which I picked up for a Lent and Easter read Unfortunately, this one did not live up to my expectations The theology in this one was too verbose, too repetitive, and too lecturing It did not keep me interested, or engrossed, or touch my soul in any way.


  3. Excellent exposition of the Cross and the theology of substitutionary atonement Sproul does a great job at explaining intimidating doctrines in simple terms.


  4. Very easy to read and inspiring presentation of the meaning of the Cross of Christ and why it was absolutely necessary R.C looks at the concept of atonement from different views we find in the Bible and shows that the necessity for the atonement of Christ finds its genesis, in the first instance, in the character of God Because He is holy and righteous, He cannot excuse sin Rather, He must pass judgment on it The judge of all the earth must do right Therefore, He must punish sinners or provide a [...]


  5. This book is excellent explanation of the Cross, and the Questions and Answers in the back are worth the price I always knew that Jesus had died for my sins on the Cross, and as I grew I began to have the vague idea that this was what was meant by Substitutionary Atonement I never thought there was another view of it I surely would not have been wise enough to defend the Biblical view against the heresies I had heard that I had the Righteousness of Christ, but did not know if that was different [...]


  6. A short, winsome presentation of the classic Protestant view of the cross Sproul doesn t break any new ground with this volume, but, like most of Sproul s writings, it s warm and devotional without sacrificing doctrinal precision.The first two chapters deal with the need of the atonement and the justice of God.Chapters 3 5 deal with metaphors of the atonement, but he rightly sees penal substitution at the heart of Christianity If you take away the substitutionary atonement, you empty the cross o [...]


  7. This is an excellent little book on the cross and what exactly Jesus did on it Sproul does an excellent job of exploring Christ s sacrifice on the cross and why exactly that specific act is central to Christianity He does use a decent amount of Christian vernacular, but he also does a pretty good job of explaining the technical termsI would recommend this to any believer who desires to read a little deeper on Christianity It is a smaller, gift sized book, so it s not very intimidating But, if s [...]


  8. R.C Sproul is an excellent author and can explain things very clearly Here are some of my favorite quotes thoughts from the book If anything has been lost from our culture, it is the idea that human beings are privately, personally, individually, ultimately, inexorably accountable to God for their lives But if people understood that there is a holy God and that sin is an offense against that holy God, they would break down the doors of our churches and ask, What must I do to be saved The prevail [...]


  9. Sproul is one of the few authors I read without having to wonder about his theological trustworthiness He teaches soundly, a true scholar with a talent of explanation.This book is a jewel amongst crucifixion writings The bare historical data about the crucifixion, writes Sproul in chapter seven, is that Jesus was executed by the Romans by being affixed to a cross outside Jerusalem Our concern, however, is not so much with what happened but with the meaning of the crucifixion The small book less [...]


  10. A really helpful book Really easily read but yet theologically deep A memorable passage that is so sad but so true talks about justification Some have justification by faith, some by works but so many by death So many people think that no matter what, when they die they will automatically go to heaven Sobering thought More sobering is, what are we doing about it Who are we telling the good news to


  11. Not quite as dense as C.S Lewis, but just as clear and powerful Theology surrounding the cross is something that I ve loved for quite awhile, and reading this helped me not only review things I had learned previously, it also gave new insights into things that were previously ignored or set aside It s not too long, but it gives a great, concise picture of the cross.


  12. This is vintage R.C Sproul Clear, articulate, and right on the money I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a very basic and to the point defense of substitutionary atonement or even a basic introduction to Christianity This book is a good example as to why Dr Sproul will be remembered for generations and is in many ways the leading Reformed light of the 20th Century.


  13. The book is wonderful Dr R.C Sproul has a gift for teaching the word of God and this book is a shining example He allows us to gain a little bit of view behind the curtain so to speak to help us understand the nature of the atonement, its effectiveness and it s power Fantastic read.


  14. A great book that every Christian should read Whether you ve been following Christ your whole life or are a new believer this book has much to offer.


  15. A good addition to anyone s theological library Dr Sproul is always good in this book and occasionally outstanding.





  16. This is a great book on the atonement written by a great theologian Chapters break down as follows 1 The Necessity of an Atonement the centrality of the cross to Christianity, the challenge of teaching it in a culture that does not believe in sin or God s holiness any, and the necessity of the atonement 2 The Just God the cross addresses the problem threat of the justice of God Sproul unpacks the justice of God, using the story of Abraham interceding for Sodom in Genesis 183 Debtors, Enemies, an [...]


  17. Short, concise, and throughly informing, it is a must read for anyone desiring to learn regarding the nature of Jesus Christ and His atoning death on the cross Sproul covers many doctrinal and practical nuances regarding the events leading to the cross and historical result and meaning in its following Don t think you ll be overwhelmed in theological verbiage he covers the subject Scripturally in basic language that ll allow the reader to memorize, meditate, and be encouraged by the glorious de [...]


  18. Excellent, short, clear read on the importances and truths of the propitiation of Christ I may be a bit biased though since I pretty much love everything that comes from the pen of Dr Sproul.




  19. This book is about the Truth of the Cross There is nothing, absolutely nothing, important than the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, came as a man, in the likeness of sinful flesh, lived a perfect life the life that no man could live , fulfilling every aspect of the Law in its entirety, under complete and total submission to the Father s will, and was crucified on a cross by the hands of lawless men And yet it was truly the plan of Almi [...]


  20. R.C Sproul s The Truth of the Cross is nothing short of an amazing piece of theological writing It discusses the necessity of Christ s atonement in light of the sins of man It also goes into detail about the substitutionary act that was Christ s death, and covers who exactly benefits from the atonement There is also a chapter on the five points of Calvinism that explains the historical depth of Calvinism.I admit that I was nervous about reading this book because of Sproul s reputation as a first [...]


  21. The Truth of the CrossAs a returning believer, I wanted to refresh myself with the basics of the faith I was thinking of revisiting the books on apologetics and basic Christianity that I had read in the past But when my big brother in the faith shared the limited time offer to get the Kindle edition for free, I grabbed it The Cross is central to Christianity RC Sproul lays this down in a thorough manner in this book For a layperson like myself who has no formal theological or biblical training, [...]



  22. It has been a wonderful read It opened my mind to different schools of thought in Christian Theology The stance of penal substitution of Protestant Theology, of Agustinianism,the purpose of the God incarnate of Anselm, and the exposition of limited atonement of Calvinism The truth of the cross hinges on the crux of the matter, which is the heart of Christianity itself.Jesus Christ, who was the Son of God, came down to earth to absolve the sins of his people He has been the Savior, Surety, Redeem [...]


  23. The Cross.Most of us have read the story, seen the pictures, heard the sermons about the cross since childhood But do we deeply and thoroughly understand the truth of the cross Why did Jesus have to die in that way What does the atonement really mean Are we really enemies of God criminals in His eyes Why did Christ have to lead a sinless life What is the significance of the shedding of blood at the cross How do the Old Testament covenants explain the cross Honestly, most of us without theology d [...]


  24. Wow As you read this book, it gets better as truth comes together on the cross In reading this book, I have found how much I have neglected the cross The cross says so much about the character of God, the mission of Jesus, and the atonement for those that believe There is much to say on the atonement and what it means to one that receives Christ as their saviour, reedemer, surety, mediator and substitute The atonement is vital because it is the character of God and the satisfaction of sin Jesus [...]
