Publisher's Description

Description: ""Dick Tripp combs the Scriptures to find and focus every reference to history's most momentous event. Does a more thorough analysis of the biblical data exist anywhere? I doubt it."" --Dr. James I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology aat Regent College, Vancouver and an executive editor of Christianity Today. ""It is surprising . . . how few books on the cross have stood the test of time. During the twentieth century, James Denny's Death of Christ (1903), Leon Morris's Apostolic Preaching of the Cross (1955) and John Stott's The Cross of Christ (1986) are among the few outstanding works. Now in Dick Tripp's Why Did Jesus Die? What the Bible Says About the Cross, we have a work of outstanding and lasting worth--an amazingly comprehensive reference to all the biblical texts that point to Christ's death, its meaning and significance for today's church. In Part 1, he traces the progressive revelation of God's saving work from Genesis to Revelation. He takes us through the images of the cross in the Old Testament from the tree of life to the Passover, to the bronze serpent in the wilderness, to the Day of Atonement, to Israel's Suffering Servant in Isaiah and the Psalms. Continuing in the New Testament, Dick Tripp takes us through the centrality of the cross in the Gospels, the Acts and the New Testament Letters and Revelation. In Part 2 he relates the cross to the theme of the Trinity, the love and justice of God, to suffering and resurrection and to other religious faiths. Throughout, there is constant cross-reference to both Testaments, to the Church's commentators throughout history and to contemporary Christian writers. A mine of fact and interpretation to inspire the heart of any preacher and teacher of Scripture."" --Bruce Nicholls
