Salvation by Crucifixion

by Philip G. Ryken


View All Available Formats & Editions


Philip G. Ryken celebrates Easter with this thoughtful guidebook to understanding the cross. Seven answers to seven questions explain the why and the wherefore of the cross for a Biblical faith and a Christian life.

Ryken covers the necessity of the cross for salvation; the offense it gives to Jews, Gentiles, and any moral individual; the peace it brings to those who trust in Christ; the power it has to achieve God's loving, saving purpose; the triumph it wins over sin, death, and the judgment of God; the humility it displays in the character of Jesus; and the boast it becomes for every believer.

What People are Saying About This

Josh Moody - Senior Pastor

The cross is the center of the Christian life and message... But what does it mean? And how does that apply to our lives? This little book will help explain that to interested readers.

Colin S. Smith - Senior Pastor

Perfect for a thoughtful person who wants to know Christ and discover what it means to trust in Him.

Mark Dever - Senior Pastor

Artful, but simple; compact, but loaded; sound, but fresh. This book is a jewel. Some passages sing. It well repays the time it takes to read it.

Joel R. Beeke - President

Read this book slowly, prayerfully, meditatively, and let its amazing truths penetrate the depth of your soul.

From the Publisher

As practical as it is profound... It is a book that will encourage the believer and challenge the unbeliever as it displays the nature of God's redeeming love. ~ Robert Norris (Senior Pastor, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Bethesda, Maryland)

W. Robert Godfrey - President

Dr. Ryken in his striking exploration of this question shows the many facets of the Bible's teaching on the cross. Jesus' identity and mission shine out clearly. This book will be interesting and helpful for Christians and non-Christians alike.
