As Christians today struggle to grasp the gospel’s true power—for themselves and for others—Surprised by Grace unfolds a liberating story that helps us come to grips with the shocking extent of God’s compassion.

I was both convicted and encouraged by this book and highly recommend it to every Christian.”

Salvation Accomplished by the Son: The Work of Christ

By Robert A. Peterson

E-book: $14.99 $2.99

After writing and teaching on the subject for nearly thirty years, this beloved professor of theology presents a major volume on the atoning work of Christ.

“Robert Peterson has produced a comprehensive study of Christ’s saving work that puts the cross at the center, but also shows how it is part of a wider plan. He shows how the atonement must be seen in the context of Christ’s whole life and ministry without compromising the essential truth of his penal substitutionary sacrifice for us. This is a refreshing and insightful study, which is much needed at the present time and deserves to be widely read.”
