Believers often take for granted the great act of salvation provided to us by the work of Jesus Christ. Beginning with the Old Testament sacrifices and the prophecies that foreshadowed Christ, authors Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington guide believers through the biblical overview of Christ’s atonement. The Great Exchange helps believers see how the Old Testament practices tie in with the New Testament discussion of Christ’s great work of salvation.
As believers work through these principles, they will begin to recognize that even though we deserve condemnation and punishment from a holy God, he has given us the opportunity to experience his great riches through his Son, Jesus Christ. The clear gospel message presented throughout the entire book offers a great appreciation of Christ for believers and an opportunity for salvation for unbelievers.
“As Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington have shown, the cross brings a timely and unparalleled message of costly love and forgiveness. Their work is a thorough examination of this rich truth in the Scriptures, and you will be richer for their biblical insights.”
Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker
“Men who have taught us so much about God’s transforming grace now marshal their resources to defend and define the glorious blessings of Christ’s atonement, which exchanges our sin for his righteousness. No truth is more important; no book more needed.”
Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary
“The next time I am asked for my top-ten reading list, this will be included! Clear and comprehensive, it leaves the reader in no doubt that this ‘great exchange’ is not only the heart of biblical theology but also the pivotal event of human history.”
Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Cleveland, Ohio
“The gospel announces a great exchange: the innocent God-Man assuming our debt as we inherit his righteousness. Those who love to hear that story will love to read this book and will be filled with fresh enthusiasm to share it with others.”
Michael Horton, J. G. Machen Professor of Theology, Westminster Seminary, California
“All who read this book will be blessed and better informed.”
Alan Andrews, President, U.S. Navigators
“I commend this volume to everyone who wants to understand more fully the nature of the atonement as taught by the apostles.”
