In this book, Dr. R.C. Sproul surveys the great work accomplished by Jesus Christ through His crucifixion — the redemption of God’s people. Dr. Sproul considers the atonement from numerous angles and shows conclusively that the cross was absolutely necessary if anyone was to be saved.

Opening the Scriptures, Dr. Sproul shows that God Himself provided salvation by sending Jesus Christ to die on the cross, and the cross was always God’s intended method by which to bring salvation. The Truth of the Cross is an uncompromising reminder that the atonement of Christ is an absolutely essential doctrine of the Christian faith, one that should be studied and understood by all believers.

Excellent Doctrine Understandable to a Layman!

I just finished The Truth of the Cross and found it to be a quick, yet deep read. Although a small book, R.C. Sproul does a masterful job of presenting the truth in a way all Christians desperately need to understand! I now know the meaning of propitiation and expiation, two big words that Dr. Sproul illustrated gloriously and understandably even to a guy without a seminary diploma. Thanks for the great book R.C.!

Another great work from R.C.

I read the first chapter online and now I am ordering 3 copies. I can tell from the first few pages this will be written with the depth and simplicity that I have come to love about Dr. Sproul's writing. In an age when churches are removing their crosses for fear of offending visitors, this book will remind us of the neccessity of the cross! Thanks R.C. and Ligonier! Jay Mathis Waco, TX
