Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die
by John Piper
Fifty Reasons why Jesus Came to Die is a great book by John Piper that, as you would expect from the title, looks at fifty reasons behind the crucifixion of Jesus.
I’m not going to go through all of the fifty reasons now, but here are the first ten chapters, which gives a good guide to the rest of the book:
- To Absorb the Wrath of God
- To Please His Heavenly Father
- To Learn Obedience and Be Perfected
- To Achieve His Own Resurrection from the Dead
- To Show the Wealth of God’s Love and Grace for Sinners
- To Show His Own Love for Us
- To Cancel the Legal Demands of the Law Against Us
- To Become a Ransom for Many
- For the Forgiveness of Our Sins
- To Provide the Basis for Our Justification
There is also a study guide available, which is a great companion for the book.
