The crucifixion of Jesus: a dreadful mistake? A tragic failure? Irrelevant? Absurd? An embarrassment?

The cross of Christ is, in fact, at the centre of God’s plan for men and women. This book explains why.

With freshness and clarity, Mark Meynell explores the Bible’s teaching, to show how God himself ‘cross–examines’ us in the death of Jesus.

At the cross, God exposes our deepest need, meets it fully and enables us to live transformed lives.

This revised and expanded edition includes new chapters on union with Christ and leadership.

Press Reviews

Derek Tidball

[Praise for the first edition] Mark Meynell has an enviable ability to take the ancient story and, without twisting or diluting it, bring it to life for the postmodern world.

Derek Tidball

[Praise for the first edition] This excellent little book plugs a significant gap in the literature on the cross.


[Praise for the first edition] A solid book that explores the whys and wherefores of the cross and resurrection.
