This book is much easier to understand than his Apostolic Preaching of the Cross which includes lots of Greek words and requires knowledge of Greek. Interestingly, this book was not on the list of recommended New Testament Theology books at popular recommendation websites, probably because it is a bit simplistic, and unlike the very long, complicated and highly researched New Testament Theology textbooks which discuss esoteric theological concepts.
Morris' strength is his theology of the cross and salvation, and he shows that in this book’s discussions of salvation and atonement. While Morris spends a lot of time on theological concepts, by faith believers can apply many of these concepts practically to their lives. Morris points out the atonement and a person’s salvation, as a result of their belief in Jesus, should result in a victorious Christian life (throughout the text especially Romans 5:17, 6:2-22, Galatians 5:24, 1 Corinthians 15:57, Romans 8:37 (68, 69), and 2 Peter 1:3-4 (322, 323)). Every time Morris talked about this, excitement rose up in my spirit, and I realized once again that Jesus meant for Christians to have powerful, effective lives which bring about His Kingdom, for His glory. Through the cross, Jesus reconciled everyone who believes in Him to the Father, ransomed believers from spiritual death, and mediated a New Covenant. Through the cross, Jesus fulfilled the law, nailed sinful passions to the cross, defeated the enemy, and overcame the world. Because of the cross, believers have the fruit of the Spirit, have the power of God, reign in life, and are victorious! Thank you Lord!
My one and only complaint is the printing quality of this paperback version. the right (odd numbered pages) have high print quality. The left (even numbered pages) have font that is slightly bolded and has slightly ragged edges such as found in multiple generation photo copies. If this would bother you, buy the hardbound version which is now out of print and available used.
