Book of the Week


I was out of town this past weekend, so I didn't post what book I'm reading this week.
It's called, "Pierced for Our Transgressions", subtitled "Rediscovering the Glory of Penal Substitution."
I thought it might be a little academic, but it's really not. And actually the second chapter was a great Bible study on the cross.
It's kept the song "In Christ Alone" in my heart as I've read it...in particular the line, "That on the cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied!" Great book, highly recommended.
Speaking of which, the David Wells is well worth the purchase. He describes the unhealthy condition of evangelicalism so well...it's very thought-provoking. For those who are in full-time ministry it's somewhat like a mandatory read.
