Product Description

Evangelical Christians often sing and preach about the blessed blood of Christ and the wonderful things it accomplishes for believers. To the uninformed ear, such language can convey the idea that Jesus' blood had semi-magical qualities. Actually, Jesus' blood was normal human blood, but the Bible refers to it in metaphorical terms to portray the many benefits that come to Christians because of Jesus' death.

In Blood Work: How the Blood of Christ Accomplishes Our Salvation, Anthony J. Carter traces this theme through the New Testament, showing how the biblical writers used the powerful metaphor of the blood of Jesus to help Christians grasp the treasures Jesus secured for them in His death on the cross. In doing so, he provides a fresh perspective on the atonement Jesus made.

Carter delves into the New Testament's teaching on several of the blessings that flow to believers because of the blood of Jesus, from their "purchase" by the blood (Acts 20:28) to their "freedom" through the blood (Rev. 1:5). Christian readers' eyes will be opened to the depth of their blessedness in Jesus and their hearts will be moved to thank and praise the triune God for such a great salvation.

Editorial Reviews

"Christians tend to speak of the blood of Christ either flippantly or not at all. However, in Blood Work, Anthony Carter helps us see that neither of these options is appropriate. The blood of Christ is a central biblical theme that deserves to be pondered deeply. Carter forces us to consider Christ’s atoning sacrifice and its many implications. In the end, we are left with a glorious, cross-centered, Christ-centered gospel that gets to the heart of our great need and God’s great provision. We are indeed purchased, redeemed, brought near, cleansed, sanctified, and freed by the blood of Christ. In a day awash with self-help books, it is refreshing to be reminded that we indeed cannot help ourselves, but God, through the blood of Christ, has done more than help us; He has saved us. Thank God for the blood!"


"This book will leave you in awe of the benefits of trusting in the finished work of Jesus on the cross. It is unquestionably thorough, remarkably captivating, and surprisingly clear. You’ll leave this book singing, ’Nothing but the blood of Jesus.’"


"Anthony Carter has brought to our senses what many Christians have taken for granted, the precious blood of Christ. His scholarship and passion are evident. We need this book."


"Blood Work is both theologically rich and devotional. Anthony Carter presents a refreshing pastoral reminder of what the believer has been given through the finished work of Christ Jesus. This is a must read for the new believer, as well as for those who are well into the spiritual journey."


"Salvation is possible only because of the shed blood of Christ. Tony Carter helps us to better understand and appreciate the full significance of this great sacrifice. This book will set Christ’s sacrifice before you and allow you to view it from angles you’ve not seen before and others you may have seen but not fully appreciated. This is a great compact book that goes deep on a subject we can’t talk about enough and for which we will never be able to thank God enough."


"Blood. It is considered vile to discuss. We are tempted to mark from our manuscripts any talk of it before we approach the pulpit. We purpose ourselves to talk around it when ’reaching out’ to unbelieving friends. Yet, it is the blood of Christ that cries out ’Adopted! Forgiven! Free! Empowered! Entrusted! Kept!’ to our broken souls. With this work, Anthony Carter reminds us that, though we may attempt to camouflage its role in every aspect of life in Christ, the blood will never lose its power. If we try to diminish its power, we will certainly lose ours."
