Product Description

"This book is brutally honest about sin and suffering and wonderfully hopeful as it points us to our true Savior."
- Timothy S. Lane
, Executive Director, The Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation & Voting Faculty Member, Westminster Theological Seminary

Staff Review: "With Death by Love, we see the maturing of a young pastor (who stepped on a lot of toes early on) into a significant pastor/theologian able to communicate the power of the gospel in powerfully effective ways. If you've written off Mark Driscoll in the past, you owe it to him and your walk in Christ to give this stunning new book a chance."
Mark Traphagen, Westminster Bookstore Staff

Real people. Real sin. Transformed lives. A compilation of heartfelt letters written from a pastor to his people that explains Jesus' work on the cross.

Death by Love is a unique book on the cross of Jesus Christ. While many books debate the finer points of the doctrine of the atonement, what is often lost are the real-life implications of Jesus' death on the cross for those who have sinned and have been sinned against. Written in the form of pastoral letters, Death by Love outlines the twelve primary effects of Jesus' death on the cross and connects each to the life of a different individual.

Driscoll, one of America's most influential pastors, and Breshears, a respected theologian, help readers understand, appreciate, and trust in Jesus' work on the cross in a way that will transform their lives. Both deeply theological and intensely practical, this book shows how everyone can find hope through the death of Jesus Christ.
