Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 22 November 2002
This book is, essentially, a popularised version of John Stott's The Cross of Christ (viewed by many as one of the most important books explaining and supporting evangelical Christianity's core doctrine of the atonement).
If you can cope with The Cross of Christ, read that- but Cross-Examined is easier to read, easier to understand, and suitable for someone who isn't already a Christian. It includes modern examples and helpful illustrations, and is good for its target market- the student population (though it is accessible to all, I should think). Meynell recommends the Cross of Christ himself at the end of the book: I suppose you could view Cross-Examined as an introduction to it, but this is no insult to the book.
Overall, a necessary book that helps everyone- whether they are scholars or not- understand just what the Bible says the Cross is about. Recommended.
