Well, back in 2007, noted Reformed pastor and theologian R.C. Sproul penned The Truth of the Cross.  In it, he “uses Scripture to unfold the meaning of the cross, its significance, and its purpose (see my review here.

I’m also aware of the various theories of the death of Christ on the cross.  My conclusion on the matter–I say let’s keep them all together, for this is both the truth and the beauty of the cross.

    My Lenten book this year was “The Cross of Christ” by the late John Stott. closely argues, well expressed, challenging and pulling no punches. I recommend it.
