John Benton says that his burden is that we rediscover, and rejoice in, the reality of what Christ achieved on the cross.
‘A clear, straightforward account of essential gospel truths, to coun- teract the dangers of unbiblical teaching. These are solid truths to live by – truly Big Deals for each one of us.’
Principal, London Theological Seminary
‘This book will repay careful study in Bible studies or for personal reading. It is an accessible introduction to the very important issues that it addresses.
And it very helpfully sets out a clear, biblical, approach to the topic.’
Dr. Josh Moody Senior Pastor College Church in Wheaton, author of No Other Gospel
‘John Benton’s At the Cross provides a gold mine of the riches of Christ for the taking. His writing style is crystal clear, refreshingly forthright, considerate to others while compelling in its own biblical argumentation. The glories of the cross are put on display in ways that magnify Christ and lead the believer to new depths of understanding, humility, and joy. In an age where confusion fegarding the cross abounds, we may give praise to God for the biblical fidelity and profound simplicity with which Benton unfolds for us Christ’s grace-filled and substitutionary atoning sacrifice.’
Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Louisville, Kentucky, USA
