Pierced for our transgressions

Pierced for our transgressions
Rediscovering the glory of penal substitution
by Steve Jeffery, Michael Ovey and Andrew Sach
Published 16th March 2007 (UK)

"Pierced for our transgressions is probably the most significant book on the doctrine.. since The Cross of Christ. It is timely and urgently needed. Let the exposition of this magnificent doctrine both inform your mind and warn your heart." - Mike Pilavachi, Soul Survivor

"I will make it required reading for all the students I teach.." Michael Ramsden, Zactrust
I don't want to overplay the significance of this book - but it's encouraging to see the breadth of endorsements, from The Proclamation Trust to Soul Survivor, from Newfrontiers to Affinity, Anglicans and Free. Could it be that we've finally found the one thing that can bridge the divides in evangelicalism in the UK? We've stood apart as a fragmented people, defined by a million differences and endless hyphenations. But the one thing that ought to be able to unite Christians is the thing that has been staring us in the face all along... Christ Crucified!
