The Cross: God's Way of Salvation

Crossway, Feb 1, 1986 - Religion - 224 pages

"Superficial views of the work of Christ produce superficial human lives." Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Ever since his first sermon in 1925, Martyn Lloyd-Jones consistently emphasized the significance of Christ's sacrifice for our sake.

This new collection of sermons reveals this theme in Lloyd-Jones' classic expository style, showing his gift for combining a warm, personal devotion to Jesus Christ with deep theological insight. His grasp of Scripture still causes the maturest believer to ponder, yet he brings a simplicity of thought to his preaching that even a child can understand and enjoy.

The Cross explains how Christ's crucifixion works for our redemption, and why this even is the cornerstone of the Christian life.

From one of this century's greatest preachers, excellent reading for ministers and anyone seeking a closer walk with Christ. Meditative, easily understandable, and biblically sound.
