Works of Christ by R.C. Sproul

Works of Christ by RC Sproul

I recently received the Works of Christ to review free from the publisher. 
This is a deep and somewhat intellectual look at the life of Christ.
Due to the layout and information in this book; one could use it as a sermon prep, a small group study. Etc.

You find each chapter lays out a part of the works of Christ such as His temptation etc. Then after reading a chapter the one preceeding it has an outline of the chapter as well as study ordiscussion questions to help you dig deeper.

The unique layout makes this book easy to use for all.
Here is what the publisher had to say:
"The work of Jesus reveals to us who He is. The work and the person may be distinguished but never separated." -Dr. R. C. Sproul

Most Christians recognize the importance of Christ's death and resurrection. But how many of us understand the theological significance of Jesus' actions before and after the Crucifixion? In The Work of Christ, Dr. R. C. Sproul looks at every aspect of Jesus' life and work, addressing such life-changing topics as: Why Jesus' baptism is relevant for our salvation The similarities and differences between the temptation of the first Adam and the temptation of Jesus, the "second Adam" How God uses song to celebrate his redemptive acts Why the Last Supper marks the beginning of a greater exodus than that of the Old Testament How Jesus' death and resurrection are grounded in the eternal covenant among the persons of the Trinity Why Jesus' ascension makes a difference in our lives today What we know and don't know about Jesus' return Moving from Jesus' existence from before creation through His incarnation, boyhood, adulthood, death, resurrection, and return, Dr. Sproul guides you to a deeper understanding of God's beautiful promise and purpose behind the works of Christ's life.
Dr. R.C. Sproul is the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries and the author of more than seventy books. A beloved speaker around the world and a well-respected academic scholar, Dr. Sproul teaches on the radio program Renewing Your Mind with Dr. R. C. Sproul, which is broadcast in forty countries.
