Carson is usually worth everyone reading, and when he turns his attention to explaining Biblical passages he almost definitely is. And in this book he explains 5 key Biblical texts on the cross and resurrection: the crucifixion itself in Matthew 27, Romans 3, Revelation 12, the resurrection of Lazarus in John 11 and Jesus and Thomas in John 20.
Carson brings his clarity and insight while also staying accesible and readable.
It’s a book I’d recommend to most people, some will find it more stretching than others, some will find it more chock full of new concepts than others, but it’s Carson – one of the sharpest modern Evangelical minds – on some of the most central Bible passages regarding the most important Biblical event. It’s worth reading.
