Who did Christ die for? What exactly did his death achieve? Who gains from his death? Did his death make things possible - or actually achieve something? What precisely does the Christian obtain as a result of Christ's death?
If you've ever asked these or similar questions, this paperback is for you. Professor Murray needs to be read slowly and thoughtfully, but is immensely helpful. Like me you might find that your understanding of the death of Christ is revolutionised through this book.
In the first section John Murray explains, beginning with man's need for atonement for sin, what Christ's death achieved, and for whom he achieved those things. The second part of the book deals with the blessings that the true Christian has because of Christ's death, and covers such areas as adoption, justification, and perseverance.
But don't get the idea that this is dry-and-dead theology. The Bible truths that John Murray explains will hopefully have a profound effect on your worship and your zeal as well.

This book put me on the right path. I (after some six months of struggling with the obvious truth of the bible) had just accepted the Reformed position (which is the Gospel position). In truth I had merely accepted that the scripture details a irreversible regeneration: on any other theology I was oblivious. Part 1 on the book was fairly hard going and I will probably return to it at a latter date: part 2 was a revelation of theology that had been hidden from me. Its a great first book for any lay theologian and particularly good for those searching into the Reformed faith.

John Murray 's great skill is the minimum number of words for the maximum content .He deals with the Bible's teaching on the death of Christ and its application to the individual . There are chapters on the nature and extent of the atonement then on great themes like justification, adoption etc, ending with heaven.
It is a pity is is only available second hand.
