The Cross of Christ
John Stott’s The Cross of Christ has had an impact on more than one generation of readers. Stott’s simple style combined with a deep desire to communicate the beauty and glory of the redemption which Christ accomplished on the cross make this volume not to be missed.

The Atonement
Why is the cross central to Christianity? The Bible uses different words and images to answer to this question–words like covenant, sacrifice, Passover, redemption, reconciliation, and justification. In plain English Leon Morris explains each of these words, thereby opening up the meaning and significance of the cross. Whether you desire an introduction to the death of Christ or a deeper understanding, this book is an excellent resource.

Knowing God
J. I. Packer’s Knowing God moves the reader toward a greater understanding of and joyful inclination to God. There are not many books that have changed more lives, other than the Bible itself, than this very book. If you or you know someone who might know of God, but not know him personally through the Lord Jesus Christ, this is an excellent volume with which to gift them. A true feast for the soul.
