Free Download: A Sample from “Salvation Accomplished by the Son”

The very heart of Christ’s saving accomplishment is his death and resurrection.

—Robert A. Peterson

As you prepare for Easter, we’d like to help you reflect on Christ’s death and resurrection. Through the first week of April, we’re offering a free download of a significant portion of Robert Peterson’s Salvation Accomplished by the Son: the Work of Christ. In these chapters, Peterson explores Christ’s saving work and offers an in-depth look into Christ’s death and resurrection.

Dr. Chris Morgan, professor of theology and dean of the School of Christian Ministries at California Baptist University, shares his experience reading Peterson’s work during the Easter season:

Salvation Accomplished by the Son

Not long ago I served as the theological reader for Robert’s Peterson’s Salvation Accomplished by the Son. It appeared to be another good book on an important topic, and it was. But it was much more.

Through Robert’s careful framing, unpacking, expounding, and applying of Christ’s saving work, Christ’s death and resurrection gripped me. Passages like Romans 4:25 and Revelation 3:14 came alive. And the significance of our Lord’s resurrection sunk in more deeply. Jesus’ resurrection brings justification, establishes peace with God, and inaugurates the new creation. I already knew and had been teaching and preaching these truths—but not enough and not with such precision.

Thankfully, I was reading the manuscript just weeks before Easter. Many insights into Christ’s death and resurrection not only found their way into me, but also in several sermons that month. Indeed, I specifically contacted Robert a few times that month to thank him for writing it and to let him know how helpful the book was in my preaching.
