Product Description

While many books debate the finer points of the doctrine of the atonement, the real-life implications of Jesus's death on the cross are often overlooked. Written in the form of pastoral letters, Death by Love outlines the twelve primary effects of the atonement and connects each to the life of a different individual.

Driscoll, one of America's most influential pastors, and Breshears, a respected theologian, help readers understand, appreciate, and trust in Jesus's work on the cross in a way that will transform their lives. Both deeply theological and intensely practical, this book shows how everyone can find hope through the death of Jesus Christ and is now available in paperback.

    This review was written for Death By Love: Letters from the Cross.
    Death by Love by Mark Driscoll is actually the first book of his that I have read. This book is a very real representation of the sin filled world that we live in, but also the power of the Gospel. Throughout this book, Mark shares the stories of those he has met as well as some from his church and how the message of the cross can deal with their sin or the sin that was done to them. Mark does not brush off their sin lightly. It is something that is very serious and he makes that clear. I believe that is one great thing about this book. There may be some that pick this book up that all of sudden have their own sin really brought to the surface so they can finally truly deal with it through the power of the blood of Jesus Christ. In the beginning of this book, Mark says this about what you will find in the chapters; "Each chapter includes a portrait of God, because to remain true all theology must begin and remain God-centered. Each chapter then proceeds to examine a biblical aspect of sin and a correlating effect of Jesus' death as the solution to the sin problem as dictated by God." Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears, who helps with supporting material at the end of each chapter, have written a book that encapsulates the Gospel. It really is the Good News of a God who loves us so much that He sent his one and only Son to shed his blood for our sins. It's also great to see that God laid this message onto the heart of a pastor. It really shows the heart of a man that loves God as well as the people that God has called him to serve.

    Mark Driscoll is one of the most effective Gospel proclaimers of our day. He has the unique ability to make reformed theology practical and understandable. This book is very personal and real, and yet I do not find Driscoll's writing nearly as persuasive as his preaching. Although I listen to his sermons from Mars Hill weekly, this was my first attempt to read him. I will try another on his books soon, perhaps "Religion Saves."

    I have to say, I just picked this book up yesterday and struggle to put it down. I am almost halfway through it and I get it. He does not beat around the bush or sugarcoat it. He speaks straight and honest(sometimes brutally) about sin it's effect and what Jesus and the cross means for us in our relationship with him as we seek to shake of the shackles of sin that have already fell away, despite our continued bondage. I don't know I am saying it eloquently enough. The format of him dealing with his flock in the form of letters is terrific and hope that he explores other issues in a second volume.
