The issue of Jesus' death on the cross remains relevant, despite claims to the contrary by a secularized world. Proof of this is the many books and several films that appear regularly, as well as the general interest they arouse.

Who sent Jesus to the cross? Why did he have to die? Why so much suffering? What does this have to do with me?

The Bible's message clearly announces that it was God who brought Christ to Golgotha. Starting from this startling statement, the author examines in an original way the reasons why it was necessary and indispensable for Jesus to go to the cross according to the plan of his Father.

But the central response to Christ's death is not the causes (why), but the purpose (for what). This is what John Piper offers us in these pages based on the revelation of God.

Not 50 causes, but 50 goals in response to the most important question each of us faces.

What did God accomplish for sinners like us by sending his Son to death?


John Piper - Pastor of a Baptist church in the northern United States, he recently retired and is dedicated to a broader ministry. He is also the author of numerous books, a popular speaker in large parts of the world, and a major player in a movement to return to the proclamation of the Word of God.
