In Lamb of God you will find a portrait of atonement that is far more beautiful and far more compelling than most popular renditions of the gospel today – one that not only demonstrates the amazing depth of God’s love for us, but also provides the very power we need in order to be set free from sin.
Separating our understanding of atonement from its original Jewish roots in the sin offering may well be one of the greatest theological errors in the history of the Christian Church.
Rediscover what the New Testament authors knew about the death of Christ and how it transformed the ancient world! In fact, they had a very robust Exchanged Life theology of atonement that is clearly evident all across the pages of Scripture.
You will never look at the cross of Christ the same way again.
