We need repetition of such a grand narrative, grand Truth, and we know it. That's probably why we don't want it. Piper's reasoning is woven through with cited Scripture, and am hoping this will be more and more true of my writing and my reasoning over the next year. Because Christ's death It's worth rereading. Because Christ's death was such a comprehensive victory, I pray my declaration of it would, by grace, be heard as relevant by those with ears to hear in every corner of my interests.
Far from a simple overview of the death of Christ and the Christian faith. This book was the end of a long search to find something for my father that would be challenging and to-the-point, but not overly theological in words or loaded with the same 'ol americanized christian jargon.
Perfect for those who seem to be stagnant or complacent in their walk and understanding in Christ. View 1 comment. This is the perfect "Morning Time" book since its chapters are very short and its concepts are basic. Piper is so good clearly communicating truth and passion for Christ. For those who know about our family MT you might remember that we started this late last January. It only has 50 chapters so technically we should have finished it a long time ago.
The thing is it took us much longer than I anticipated as life threw us a series of curve balls. The point is that we kept on reading when we could, This is the perfect "Morning Time" book since its chapters are very short and its concepts are basic.
The point is that we kept on reading when we could, a little bit at a time, and we did finish. This is not a great feat to brag about but it is an example how MT works by not giving up when things mess it up. Just pick up and continue where you last left off. No need to overhaul the whole thing because of every interruption in life.
This very small book packs a very hard punch! Do not be overwhelmed by the thought of 50 chapters. They are small. Most are just two pages in length, which allows the reader to be able to read the book as a devotional thought each morning or evening. The book helps its reader by grasping some of the most foundational truths of the Bible.
Piper answers the questions such as: Who killed Jesus? Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus have to die? What impact does Jesus death have for a person living today? E This very small book packs a very hard punch! Each one of these questions could take chapters and books to answer by themselves.
What this book provides is a quick understanding of 50 reason why Jesus can to die. Even the most studied individual would do well to review what Jesus did for us on the cross on a consistent basis. This book help an individual appreciate the salvation enjoyed through Jesus' death and resurrection.
I was looking for a short book about the atonement to put on a book rack. Piper's book will fit that need. However, it is not perfect. As one reviewer said, there is a lot of overlap between the chapters. He is repetitive. Second and more glaring, though typical for Piper, he does not really bring the Old Testament into it. There is no big picture of Jesus as fulfilling the covenant or Jesus as Israel.
This might be because he was trying to get at what the atonement achieved instead of what caus I was looking for a short book about the atonement to put on a book rack.
This might be because he was trying to get at what the atonement achieved instead of what caused it. But at the least one of the reasons Christ came to die was to fulfill Scripture.
This is not mentioned explicitly. His failure to incorporate OT themes and the covenant makes this book weaker. He could have taken ten of his reasons out added more OT themes and made the book a lot more robust. Still as a basic lay introduction to Christ's work it is good.
Feb 14, Bailey Marissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: theology-christian-life , young-adult , adult , new-adult , read-in A great book on the fifty reasons why Jesus' death is so important to humans and to Christianity in general. Jun 12, Julianne rated it really liked it Recommended to Julianne by: Molly. Molly lent me this book, and I've been enjoying reading it with my Bible during devotions. I'd read one of the blog-post length chapters or two or three!
It helped to really center my focus on what Jesus has done for me through the cross, and for that I am very grateful. I knew what His death meant, of course, but diving into it with this much detail gave me a greater respect and awe of the gift of salvation! As usual, J Molly lent me this book, and I've been enjoying reading it with my Bible during devotions.
As usual, John Piper's words are on point: "What Christ did for is not that we might help him, but that we might see and savor him as infinitely valuable. He died to wean us from poisonous pleasures and enthrall us with his beauty.
How can we know who Christ really is? That question has been pondered through the ages. Yet the answer is simply that Jesus, as He is revealed through God's Word, has a glory - an excellence, a spiritual beauty Yet the answer is simply that Jesus, as He is revealed through God's Word, has a glory - an excellence, a spiritual beauty - that speaks to our souls and says, "Yes, this is truth. There is no more important issue in life than seeing Jesus for who He really is, and savouring Him above all else. Let this book be your companion as you discover Him.
