If Jesus Christ died for your sins, and he did, that makes him the most important person in your life, and his death the most important thing he did. So walk through this study of Christ's Great Atonement and learn the depth and riches of the cross.
The Great Exchange exalts Christ's finished work of atonement as the central event of all history, where, in union with Christ as our wrath-bearer, curse-bearer and sin-bearer, our sin is forever exchanged for His righteousness.
"As Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington have shown, the cross brings a timely and unparalleled message of costly love and forgiveness. Their work is a thorough examination of this rich truth in the Scriptures, and you will be richer for their biblical insights."
"The next time I am asked for my top-ten reading list, this will be included! Clear and comprehensive, it leaves the reader in no doubt that this "great exchange" is not only the heart of biblical theology but also the pivotal event of human history."
"The gospel announces a great exchange: the innocent God-Man assuming our debt as we inherit his righteousness. Those who love to hear that story will love to read this book and will be filled with fresh enthusiasm to share it with others."
"Men who have taught us so much about God's transforming grace now marshal their resources to defend and define the glorious blessings of Christ's atonement that exchanges our sin for his righteousness. No truth is more important; no book more needed."
"All who read this book will be blessed and better informed."
"I commend this volume to everyone who wants to understand more fully the nature of the atonement as taught by the apostles."
"All too often in our contemporary culture and, sadly, even in our contemporary church, we walk by the cross and offer only a passing glance. There is nourishment for the mind and the heart in the pages of The Great Exchange."
