Scandalous: The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus
By D.A. Carson
How important are the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ really? For many people, the cross and Christ’s resurrection from the dead are such scandalous events that once they begin to get a glimpse of them, they conclude it must be fiction at best or a lie at worst. How about you? Perhaps there is no better time to consider what really took place at Calvary and the empty tomb than Easter. In his book, Scandalous: The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus, D. A. Carson helps us not only understand the historicity of these events, but their meaning as well. He examines five key passages related to the death and resurrection of Christ and shows how these two inseparable events provide the basis for our salvation and hope. Carson also weds sound exegesis, rich exposition, and practical devotion in order to highlight the immense implications of the cross and the resurrection. Perhaps you need to familiarize yourself once again with these glorious events. Pick up this book…you will not be disappointed!
