WHY? The most important questions anyone can ask are: Why was Jesus Christ crucified? Why did he suffer so much? What has this to do with me? Finally, who sent him to his death? The answer to the last question is that God did. Jesus was God's Son. The suffering was unsurpassed, but the whole message of the Bible leads to this answer. The central issue of Jesus' death is not the cause, but the meaning: God's meaning. That is what this book is about. John Piper has gathered from the New Testament fifty reasons. Not fifty causes, but fifty purposes, in answer to the most important question that each of us must face: What did God achieve for sinners like us in sending his Son to die?… (more)

The Ground of Christian Faith
This book deals with an important fact of christian faith- the death of Jesus Christ - in order to expose its meaning and consequences to the believers. Piper examines the Scripture’s testimony about it and points its implications in christian life. The chapters are short and the book can easy be read as a devotional (one chapter a day). In this work one can see how profitable is the rule of the analogy of the Scripture (the Scripture explains the Scripture). John Piper succeeds in giving a systematic account of the matter. ( )

TO
Jesus Christ

Despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief...
we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth....

He was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people....
There was no deceit in his mouth.
Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him;
he has put him to grief.

THE PROPHET ISAIAH
CHAPTER 53, VERSES 3-10
First words
The most important question of the twenty-first century is: Why did Jesus Christ suffer so much? But we will never see this importance if we fail to go beyond human cause. The ultimate answer to the question, Who crucified Jesus? is: God did. It is a staggering thought. Jesus was his Son. And the suffering was unsurpassed. But the whole message of the Bible leads to this conclusion.
