Why is the cross the crux of Christianity? What are the meaning and significance of the atonement? The Bible uses a host of terms to illuminate the answers to these questions: covenant, sacrifice, the Day of Atonement, Passover, redemption, reconciliation, propitiation, justification. In plain English Leon Morris explains each of these words, thus opening up for students, pastors and teachers the fuller biblical dimension of God's great salvation.

This book (or the more advanced 'The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross') should be required reading. What does the Bible mean when it uses various terms to describe the atoning work of Christ? Morris answers clearly and understandably. I preached a series of sermons using this book as background. For my money, there are few commentators/expositors in a class with Morris.
